    Well here she is Guys.

    This Revell Lancaster is in a form i think no one has seen before because i've seriously corrected this kit to make it look more like an a original Lancaster.
    i completed this on 21/04/10. 5pm UK time, after building it for several months.

    No dought you have kept upto date with the build of this you will know whats gone into it, for those who haven't take a look in 'start to finish builds' and be shocked ! :oops:

    I have cut the wings to add the dihedral angle to it.
    Removed Revells original nacelles and replaced with Airfix Lancaster nacelles.
    Added Airfix mainwheels.
    Re-profiled tail wheel.
    PE flaps.
    Cut and re-set tail planes.
    Altered/re-shaped the upper turret fairing ring.
    Airfix Lancaster front turret installed instead of Revell's job.
    Removed Revells Turret hood and replaced with the Airfix one[The turret hood is the tear drop shaped part which is on the front section of the fuselage above front turret]
    Three exposed engines with spinners removed.
    Corrected front upper escape hatch.
    Resin guns used instead of Revells poor attempt.
    Chopped up the interior and replaced all the seats/floor.
    Resin carb' intakes.
    DF loop made and put into cockpit.

    This Lancaster is made up to resemble VN * T. R5546 of 50Sqd RAF Swinderby
    This was lost on Nuremberg raid 30/31 March 1944.

    Enjoy......
