  1. Thanks for sharing, so fortunate that somebody recorded it . . . I echo you thoughts about getting it saved before the tides rip it apart .. . .
  2. I believe a prominent modeller already has but at my build stage, I shall used my modified kit seat . . .
  3. The 32nd resin seat with the Tamiya 48th figure It maybe that the seat will be more suitable for the HK 48th scale Lancaster ???
  4. Apparently the seat is to small for 32nd scale There is a build of an actual Lancaster Nose only section being built in England and the author of the article has provided measurements of an actual Lancaster seat to confirm the size. It seems that the original HK kit seat, despite lacking the fine detail, is in fact, nearer to the actual size . . . .
  5. These arrived yesterday from Jersey USA. Beautifully crafted resin seat for the Lancaster showing quite exquisite fine detail . . . Some CAREFUL trimming from the base will be needed . . . . back as soon as I can Ian
  6. Progress has been slow because I have been doing extra hours at work . . . . The bomb-aimers position down in the front of the aircraft, extra wiring and a modified bombsight framing added . . . I have also been putting together a bomb load and to that end You really should improve the 4000Ib-er by adding an outer skin to create the lip seen at the front end and also to make the 'empty' end better in appearance by adding a circular disc to hid the joint seam and a couple of photos showing the load . . . The painting of the bombs was taken from the
  7. I too would like to know where in the UK cos I need some new blades . . .
  8. I have been adding a touch of color to the Airscale Cockpit set. I have virtually finished adding bits into the nose and cockpit sections as seen above but I am now waiting for the new seat to arrive . . . . More to come soon Ian
  9. What detailing for a book, it must cover all aspects of painting that would be beneficial to every modeller out there . . . For me, the casual modeller, its rather expensive for so few models I build . . . that combined with overseas postage and import tax these days
  10. I have slowly been adding wiring and rebuilding the bomb sight frame. Not much to show a photo just yet but the big exciting news is that I have just ordered one of these from New Jersey . . . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-32-Lancaster-DELUXE-Resin-Pilots-Seat-No-Belts-Resin-Upgrade-for-HK-NEW/184675081819?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D230925%26meid%3De4a029a46c3946c98ea6ffc2d77eeccf%26pid%3D101195%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf%26sd%3D184675086911%26itm%3D184675081819%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9PairwiseUnbiasedWeb&_trksi
  11. I spotted those yesterday Carl but as I have already converted mine . . . . I do like the extra detail so will be interested in your view of them. I was a little put off with all the additional 'sprue' ?? I dont think they are badly priced either so thats encouraging . . .. Ian

    Apparently WNW are coming to be an airshow at Hood Airfield, Masterton . . . .

    Key players may have left the company but who is to say that WNW has closed down altogether ???
  14. I used Hum 90. Hum 78 Interior Green is just too Green and although Hu 90 might be lighter, I think it may looked better . . . You may be right but the other colour I considered was Tamiya SKY . .. .
