    hi wurger / all :!:,

    heres some pictures of my 'flymodel' lancaster bomber, made entirely out of paper, open a door and it will blow away ! :lol:.
    i vac' formed the spinners/front piece on all the bombs/nose blister and the dome, wheels are made from wood, the clear canopy was made from a clear toy box cut into sections :evil4:

    not the easist thing to make you have to be very carefull on your glueing and cutting.

    Ian as a dyed in the wool Lancaster fan that is great work mate. I bet my father would have dearly loved to have seen your lovingly done model. He was a Mid Upper Gunner with 467 Squadron RAAF. A very impressive job mate that you have done
