    Okay fellas grab your chairs here we go, this is a build deicated to wojtek and all you fellas this is going to be a slow build the kit is very very big with a wingspan of 40 inch,s in 1/33 scale. I am not certain but Gomix flymodel is the only card model manufacturer that makes the Lancaster kit. This kit is loaded with detail it has a full bomb bay thats optional and the landing flaps are in the kit. A very well printed kit and a pleasure to build lots and lots of parts it will keep me bust Terry any reference material is welcomed same with you other fellas as well Old boats is going to do this justice. later this evening I will post some pictures of trhe build progress.

    The build has begun starting with the pilots compartment i show a series of photos to the construction of the pilots seat and floor board. there are 15 parts to thje pilots seat. The trim wheel was constructed and installed in the pilots floor board the floorboard was backed up useing light cardboard and the printed floorboard was glued down to the floorboard sub assembly unit. letting this assembly dry overnite I will resume toimorrow following the constructuion of the pilots compartment.

    Fiddlers Green have a paper / card Dambuster Lanc, i have no idea of scale and it's for sale by download only meaning you have to print it out. Looks very detailed too.

    Just noticed the person building one stated the span at rudders (fins) is 10 inches. I'm sure that'll be helpful to work out scale.
