Hello everyone,

  I'm very excited to build this kit as it is a classic airframe that I have yet to build.  The kit is the Hasegawa 1/72 scale Lancaster B Mk I/MkIII, however, I will be building it as an RCAF Rescue scheme from late 1962.  Hasegawa did release this kit with the RCAF rescue scheme so all the parts required for the conversion are included in the kit.

  The only aftermarket items that I'll be using for this build are the decals which were produced by Leading Edge Models (sheet#72.11) which also includes a few resin bits and resin Lancaster wheels by Hussar (kit#72002)

  The build will hopefully be straight forward and the paint scheme is the interesting part with the lower section of the plane being bare metal and the top white with the high visibility stripes for added interest.

  Can't wait to get started and share my progress with you all.  Here are photos of the kit box and all the sprues........

That looks like a challenging build. Have fun and good luck.
I am a bit in doubt of what to build. Never been a big fan of planes. All the filler needed, sanding and scribing new panel lines really put me off. So currently checking out some kits since the only kit in 1/72 I have on the shelff is a Revell WWI kit, and they are so tiny and the quality of the sprues is horrible. So, lets continu the search and within a few days I post my contribution 😉

Good luck with the build.  Nice to see a different take on an old classic.

I was going to make the Eduard BF110C/d but I guess for a long build like this, I had to step up a gear, just ordered the Eduard Liberator........I like the idea of doing a WW11 without camo. Grrrr you set a hard standard with a Lanc build

Thanks guys, can't wait to see what you all have in store for this GB.  To be honest, this was the only 1/72 kit I had left in my stash after building 3 in the last GB and the last thing I need is to buy another kit.  Also, this should be good practice for me as I have a Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster waiting to be built.

Love the Lanc,  I took this video at the East Kirkby Museum about 3 years ago,  those Merlins always bring a lump to my throat.

I have never built one so I`m looking forward to yours

Totally agree, there's no better sound in the world than an old warbird barking out it's challenge to all and sundry.  I visited the museum myself a number of years ago.  I believe there are plans afoot, if the funding can be sourced, to return her to full flying condition?

I have several videos just like that one, I'm fortunate enough to be a member of a museum in Canada that has a Lanc that flies and on any weekend in the summer I can go and watch it fly around.  One day I might even bee lucky enough to go for a flight in it.  I have had the pleasure of walking/crawling through the plane from nose to rear and that really gives you an appreciation for how tight it is inside, even though the plane is so big.

I hope to get started on this soon and will post progress as soon as I do.

I agree with you... But also in my case I don't think I will be good enough to manage the sanding and scribing of the panel lines. Maybe later ...

Have fun with this build, side tracking but the resin arrived today and an advert for the new Wingut wings 1:32 Dambuster Lancaster they are releasing this year. This kit looks nice and it'll be 1 big monster

I think you know your theme tune was an obvious choice for an English man to chose for you
