RCAF Lanc 10MP. This really is a group effort

The "extra" set of controls look mighty good. Of course, back in the day, most mechanics surely knew how to 'wing it'

Keep 'em comin

Well, it certainly isn’t perfect, but it’s a start.  Through the Perspex, it’ll look the part, I suppose.

Some dayglo inspiration for ya Ern - Lanc 10DC air-to-air videos at 4:45 and 10:15.  I know yours won't be slinging Firebees, but it's the first video I've seen of Canadian Lancasters.

Mike, it was a real postwar workhorse. Drone controller, SAR bird, Maritime Patrol, ASW Patrol, photo mapping, etc.

FM104 shows as a rescue ship, but according to her history, she was mostly a Maritime Patrol ship. No drones from this one, though.

That video almost looks like Edwards. Definitely the Southwest.

Those controls are identical, bang on! Great work Ernie.

Cheers

Thanks, Mark!!

Now to the turret shells.

Front is painted over, rear turret is an empty observation shell.

Can anyone familiar with the Mk.X tell me if the reinforcement doubler plates on the fuselage top by the Martin Turret is a single piece, or two pieces, one on each side?

One piece I'd say................ this is on 'our' Lanc at Nanton Alberta.....FM159 which was a rescue Lanc....

I can't tell if that double wraps around to the other side or is a gusset below the turret, Jeff.  I think I almost see an upper edge, but then on the far side of the turret, there's a definite double skin there.

FYI, Mike Swinburne 3D printed me that scoop, and it's way, WAY better than the kit part.  The kit part almost seems too flat and featureless.  Mike's part has much more bulk to it and certainly is a much better representation of the real thing.

I will try to dig further...... but from the pics I have seen it is one piece each side...... although I could be mistaken....

Ok, that’s what I need. Two pieces total. One for each side, which is what I thought at first.  I was worried that is was one big wrap around over the top piece.
