The participation so far in this GB is amazing and I'm really enjoying reading through everyone's builds.

I managed to get started on this build the other day.  Not a lot of progress but I got the interior parts cut off the sprues and cleaned up and mostly installed.  As you can see I had to fill some rather large spaces on the cockpit floor, I didn't bother with the ones behind the main spar as they won't be seen.  I also included a photo of the fuse halves placed together.

Next up will be painting and weathering the interior.

One year at Shoreham Airshow in the southern UK we were all sitting on the hill
overlooking the airfield and the Lanc flew low and banking towards us over the hill.
Low enough to see the crews faces as it thundered by, a truly stirring sight !!!

I've always liked the idea of taking just the fuselage and turning it into a bus and
use the bomb bay for luggage etc. complete with working turrets etc.

Anyhow, my fantasy aside nice to see you making some progress on this [smile]

I was thinking about all the threads where me and some others were explaining to a new member how to use a photo sharing site to get their images in a thread. Never mind countless hours loading my pictures to photobucket and flicker. Got to stop thinking about it!

A little irrelevant history on the Lancaster, my father's parents worked at AVRO's in Chadderton, Manchester.

There was no runway there and the Lancaster's had to be transported to Woodford airport (about 6 miles away).

All the lamp posts along the route were hinged so the planes outer engines could pass by (outer wing tips removed).

ha what an interesting anecdote Keith,
that would make for a very cool and unique diorama !

Did they play the Thunderbirds theme tune when the lamp posts folded over ? [biggrin]

The irony of that, England during evenings was under blackout, not allowing any lights during darkness hours.

Yet they still hinged them......

That's England for you

The last few days here at home brought some very cold temperatures, -23 Celsius this morning, so I made some good progress on the Lanc.

First up, before I could paint the interior or join the two halves of the fuselage I had to cut out 2 observer windows in the rear side of the fuse halves.  The windows themselves are resin and were provided in the little bag of resin goodies that came with the decals.  Here are some photos marking out the location of the windows and the tools used.

And a shot of one of the windows in place.....

Next up was to paint the interior.  Not a lot of detail in there and since most would not be visible I just added the decals provided and gave it a basic weathering treatment.  Here is is painted.....

And here are some photos after the interior was installed in one half......

Then, before I could join the fuse halves together I had to glue the rear observer windows in place.  Because the windows are resin I wasn't sure which glue would be best to use, so I went the safe route with Microscale Liquitape.  It's basically white glue, but I find it works well.

Then I carefully joined the fuselage halves together....
