That's the kit compass that I grafted into position on the Airscale PE.

Hi James could you elaborate a little more on how you did this and what you used to make the compass and any decals that you used

Thanks CC

From memory, the compass is attached to a plastic part, I just cut that off and sanded it flat. 

The decal for this comes with the Airscale set.

Thanks James 

 I guess I'll have to get Airscales placards and other cockpit stuff. I keep running into situations where I see other modlers using there stuff and I don't have them, so it's time to upgrade my stash.

Stash updated 

RAF instrument decals - USAAF instrument decals - USN instrument decals - Allied instrument bezels - cockpit details. Hopefully that should hold me over for a while.

did exactly the same myself last night based on what I was seeing here - I also opted for german decals and placards for allied. This hobby is expensive and I have no doubt only 10% of what I put into the kit will be seen once sealed up !

Looking great so far, James.

Thanks for (sort of) clearing up the green vs black cockpit question for me.  I've been through a couple Lancs on this side of the pond, and all had black cockpits.  I thought it might have been a postwar change, but most probably it's just a Canadian production difference.

what an awesome thread!

I believe it should be XF-71.

You know us Canucks Ernie, always sneaking in changes when no ones looking! :D

Nice job James.. looking really good.

I look forward to seeing the finished model, all weathered and dirty. Are you going for a closed up look or will you be opening the door and at least one engine cowling?

It'll be closed up apart from the bomb doors. There's no mechanism to pose the crew entry door in an open position, and I have no time to try and fathom it out. The engines will be closed up too as I figured the aircraft wouldn't have cowls off whilst laden with a full bomb load.

Good planning on the engines Jim!! Doesn't the door open inwards and forward?
