    hi everyone, just signed up, myself and my 13 year old son are plane buffs. Ijust finished building this Lancaster full scale " nose art " replica and thought this may be a place where members might like to see it. It's 36" X 66", aluminum with 467 rivets. I built the frame to make it look like a shipping crate. I measured up 4 different Lancs to get the rivet spacing correct, and found 3 different patterns !!

    Great stuff there, Rollie!

    By the way, my great-uncle and my second cousin flew Lancasters with the Pathfinders during WW2.
