  1. Hi Mike,

    I was not trying to be disrespectful but I love your Lanc conversion and it really deserves a dedicated thread of it's own.

    Keep up the good work.



  2. Very nice John, Shall we call it the Shelf of Delay from now on? Cees
  3. Considering your opinion I rate this kit unbuildable. Cees
  4. Mike, That looks fantastic please make it a separate thread for all of us to enjoy. Cheers Cees
  5. There's no stopping you! But then again you like 'em dirty. Wonderful.
  6. It wil certainly not be at Telford, it has been three times before. The last time I kept on reparing transit damage. Gus, don't worry the joint is very firm and I make it a habit to hold the fuselage at the wingattachement area. Cees
  7. Some more work of the messy kind. The seam where I had sawn off the cockpit had to be made good. Due to a slight unevenness this could be a problem. as Lancasters had fabric tape around the transportjoint I figured the Manchester would too. So a trialfit was done with some blue tape I had lying around. Also some panellines had to be rescribed. Cees
  8. Thanks and yes satisfaction is part of modelling. Just as selfdoubt but some more progress. the rudders are almost finished with both counterweights and the rudder tab linkages finished bar some refinement. next, the elevator hinges to cover the rods that fits the elevators to the stabilizer. Cees
  9. Thanks chaps. Just doing what I think is best but any tips are welcome. I seem to be making lots of mistakes before an acceptabel result is achieved. First rudder counterweight using steelrod. Another hurdle overcome. now to make the other one. cheers Cees
  10. I was more hoping to hear some tips or critique that I can learn from.
  11. And the trimtabs are fitted. Linkages to follow. Outer fins are loosely fitted. Cees
  12. After some 4 years the fuselage is whole again. I forgot what a big stick it is. filling, sanding to follow. After that the details to complete the fuselage will commence. The fun work so to say. The fuselage will be completed including camouflage and markings etc. before work om the wings start. Finally getting somewhere. Cees
