    Peter Jackson's model of an Avro Lancaster at Hood Aerodrome, Masterton, New Zealand. This model was made in China (where else) of steel and fibreglass. This it the first time it has been erected. Maybe the colour remake of the Dam Busters is still on the cards, well hopefully.

    Ah! Got it now! The same pic as shown in the Press release on the movie, with those well-known hills on the edge of RAF Scampton!!!
    It certainly looks impressive, and well done to the movie company for going to such lengths.

    Airframes, you need to take a little more water with what you drink. If you think they are hills behind Scampton you have had one too many. Those are the lower slopes of the Rimatuka Ranges that form the barrier between Wellington, and the Wairarapa in New Zealand.

    On another note;

    The following is from todays New Zealand Herald;

    Oscar-winning director and plane enthusiast Sir Peter Jackson has upgraded his private jet to a Gulfstream G550, which is capable of flying non-stop from New Zealand to Los Angeles.
    The plane is considered the epitome of luxury, and comes with a hefty price-tag of $68 million.
    Yet despite shelling out a small fortune for the G550, it is believed Jackson cannot fly home in it.
    The G550 replaced Jackson's older Gulfstream IV, which would refuel in the Pacific Islands or Hawaii due to its shorter range.
    Aviation is one of Jackson's many passions.
    He owns a plane construction company The Vintage Aviator and was part-way through the filming of a feature on World War II Dambusters.
    He already owned 29 World War I and replica planes, though only half of them were capable of flight.
    His newest aircraft typically seated between 12 and 16 passengers in separate living areas.
    The seating can be converted to beds for five or six passengers. Capable of flying 12,500km without a fuel stop, the G550 has the longest flight range in its class.

    Good info there. By the way, the refernce to the 'Scampton Hills' was a joke! The area immediately around Scampton is as flat as a witches t*t ! I had realised the pic was taken in NZ !!!

    Ok Airframes, being a colonial, not familiar with the area around Scampton. Not a lot of flat land around this country.
