    Well guys, glad to see the back of this kit and anyone going to build the Airfix 1st tooling ........good luck :lol:

    The decals where all sourced from my spares box and the Prototype ''P'' came from 'Fantasy Print Shop' in the UK, it has a few faults here and there but i was really meant to build it as it was from the kit parts but some where just a joke and used some parts from 2nd tooling Airfix Lanc' bits.

    Laugh if you dare:oops: :lol::lol::lol::lol: i reckon it turned out not too bad.

    With the guys - she came out great Ian! One question though - should the white in the fin flashes be so wide?

    A simple answer....yes ! Notice how the wing roundels are also small :!: The fin flashes and wing roundels where changed by the RAF later in the war a date i've seen but can't remember which book it's in :oops:

    Hi Ian

    Great model. You have done a really good job. It is not common to see this Lancaster built.

    Cheers

    Looks very good Ian, I didn't even realise the prototype carried a ventral turret. Anyone have any info on how it was operated? I'm assuming the weapons were 2x .303 Brownings :?:

    Airfix 1/72nd? Looks nice. Can't get enough of this bomber. Not a fan of the Airfix kit though. Quite crude. Well done, Ian.

    Bl**dy good work Ian! It looks marvellous, especially for such an old kit. I remember this kit when I was a youngster, back in the 50's, when we all thought it was marvellous, which it probably was for the time!
