  1. Very nice. Having Canadian heritage (on my Father's side) I will be building some Canadian themed stuff this year!
  2. And these are some of the references I'm using. DSC_3888_12213 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  3. Sorry I deleted them due to having reached my limit on Flickr. I'll re-upload them.

  4. So been building this since November after mislaying parts and the box since moving of the previous build. DSC_3746_12086 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr The progress so far DSC_3878_12206 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr And the example it will be finished as using left over parts and decals from a Meng Panther. scan0001 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr I was invited over to a friends on Friday to play with his airbrush. So off I toddled. And this is the result (the hatches are just tacked in place). Not bad for a first try.

  5. I built this for a WW1 theme Group Build elsewhere. I really enjoyed this kit. The base is an old CD case. The figures came with the kit (I didn't use the Nurse or other casualty as saving them for the early version).

  6. Thank you. You would think the Lanc is one of my favourite airplanes. But it isn't despite my Grandfather crewing 'em. My favourite airplane is the Avro Shackleton, although not many books published about that old warhourse.
  7. NX611 at East Kirkby was not Canadian built (she was built by Austin Motors) and she has a Black cockpit up to the front of the main spar. As does PA474. Also the A.V.Roe Co Ltd camouflage drawing Z1723 of 31/3/41 specifies only that 'the interior of the bomb compartment, undercarriage compartment including doors and interior of wing flaps are to be painted Night'. As mentioned above the fuselage interior was green on early Lancs and then Night later on and this probably applied to turrets too.
  8. These were taken at the RAFM Hendon in January 2015. 32368196986_d56b0a71b0_b by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr 32368196736_619a975c0e_b by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr 31596459043_239f42eeb9_b by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr 31565136664_0010588e6a_b by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr And an article on the Rose-Rice turret. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_turret
  9. In 2015 I fulfilled a boyhood dream of visiting Lancs throughout the country (three of them in Bomber County of course). The Lanc means a lot to me as my late Grandfather was on Lancs during WW2 and Post-War with Coastal Command "The Kipper Fleet". Most of the pics in this walkaround are mainly of KB976 and NX611 with a few of PA474 Duxford's KB889 and Hendon's R5868. Now I've bored you all enough already so on to the pics. So first KB976 which was at the time in the RAF Scampton Heritage Centre. The fact that KB976 has Canadian heritage like me means even more to me (even more since I got aboard her) DSC_2316_1306_zpsuqurk4c8 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_2327_1317_zpsgeaxarb8 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_2324_1314_zpshcv2ohr9 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_2325_1315_zpsimgtw5fq by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr Trailing aerial fairing.

  10. The motor is now complete. The Maybach HL230 P30 was a re-bored HL210 P30 to increase the displacement from 21,000cc to 23,000cc. During production of the HL230 the maximum rpm was reduced to 2500 by the factory. There were two versions of the HL230, the P30 as used in the Panther and King Tiger and Jagdtiger and the P45, as used in the Mid and Late Tiger's and the Sturmtiger. The only decals that come for the engine in the kit is the data plate on the engine at the front. The label for the air filter's came from my decal bank. DSC_3512_11874 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3513_11875 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  11. More Maybach motor work. DSC_3507_11870 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3510_11872 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3511_11873 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  12. State of how the motor looks at the moment. DSC_3504_11867 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3505_11868 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3506_11869 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  13. Started painting the engine. The colour is about a right match for the engine I'm copying. DSC_3501_11864 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3502_11865 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3503_11866 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  14. One Maybach HL230 P30 engine under construction. DSC_3500_11863 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr The HL230 P30 was a water cooled, 23 litre, V12 gasoline engine. 9,000 HL230 engine's were produced by Maybach, Auto Union and Daimler-Benz.
  15. I noticed the fire extinguisher on the left wasn't sitting right. So now I've rectified it. DSC_3485_11849 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  16. This week's progress on the Panther. DSC_3479_11843 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3478_11842 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3477_11841 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  17. First discrepancy I've found with the kit are that the MG ammo bags are a little on the small side, compared to Meng ones from my King Tiger (the MG ammo bags were on the small side in their King Tiger's too) So I'll be using the Meng ones. DSC_3410_11774 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr Takom on the Left , and a Meng one on the Right.
  18. A bit more done on the Panther Ausf.A. This is a week's work of progress on the build. DSC_3392_11756 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3393_11757 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  19. The AK 7-200 has now been painted in RLM 02. Why? Well look at the lower portion of the un-restored 7-200. DSC_2900_11269 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_2901_11270 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr This is an un-restored 7-200 transmission, and that lower portion looks like RLM 02 to me, or an equivalent colour. 28276717_1947791745249172_4770394428487800363_n by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  20. I started this last month in between packing. DSC_2843_11214 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr Progress has been slow. This is how far I've gotten on the build. DSC_2845_11216 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr I never build anything without references, otherwise there is no point in doing a build eh? DSC_2844_11215 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr And alongside my Tiger II DSC_2848_11219 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr After Dinner today I knocked up the 7-speed AK 7-200 transmission. DSC_2893_11262 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_2894_11263 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr
  21. Not done too much lately, as packing stuff away ready for when the Council turf me out
