Carl, I have a Tamiya Spitty in my stash, so I'll check. Actually, I have one of each of the three versions, so hopefully I'll be good for three of the four engines. :)  I'll let you know, sir.

 

Sounds good Ernie. I have 8 sets here so enough for both of us.

Well, a quick look found nothing really even close to being suitable. A pill bottle was to wide, so,.... let’s cast a cylinder in a pill bottle, use Pam to keep it from sticking (het, it works with my pancakes and vomlets, then get out the Drexel and start carving

Might be a touch wide, but we’ll slim it down a bit.

Innovation is what modelling is all about . . . great effort and I'm sure it will end up looking as its supposed to do :construction:  In progress

It’s got more holes and divots in it than a Trumpeter kit

Well, a bit more information searching finds that all postwar RCAF Lancs used block tread tires, not the wartime smoothies as the kit contains.

And there’s a scoop on the starboard side of the fuselage for cooling air. I expect for the electronics amidships...  no real issue there, I’ll carve one of those, but the wheels might be an issue..

Rear observer windows are not flat as I thought, but domed out.  Hmmm

You will probably find it doesn't stick so much, if you put it inside rubber first.

And who's this Pam?

She don’t stick around to much...  you don’t know Pam was down there clinging to the earth so you don’t fall off?

Jeff, that'd be great for unclogging the ice floes at the Mouth of the Churchill and Mackenzie Rivers.

WTF? :blink:

Surely that's a 'what if' isn't it?

It'd certainly get the sheep moving in the right direction.
