Hi guys.

Now that I have stopped the dribbling, curtailed the shaking to be left only with a huge grin and an incessant desire to loudly hum The Dambusters, I have managed to get some shots of the bounty, having problems with the orientation, OK in photobucket:-

























Boyed up by the imaginary sound of Merlin engines and the smell of cordite, I went out to the workshop to start the epic build.  Is was so cold that I had to deploy the space heater, the portable gas heater and the wood burning stove, only to find that I had lost my bottle and couldn't pluck up the courage to start.  So I ended up working on the old Audi R8 that I started before the F4 group build and a signal box lever frame, jobs I had been putting off for weeks.

Anyway tomorrow is another day, so I will regroup and see how my mojo is then!

Da, dee da, da da da da da da ...........

Regards

Chris

There is always a bit of trepidation before you start an expensive kit, but once you start cutting parts off the sprue it will all come together fine, we are all with you mate

Oh wow, this is one massive model. I've seen one that was built. Detail is stunning, you would need a tv stand unit to display this.
I'd be booking a two week holiday, if I had this, and you wouldn't see me until it's finished,
I love it, good luck wih the build Chris.

I have the Big Ed set for my 1:72 Lanc, so I'm in for the same, only smaller. lol.
Good luck with the mojo Chris. [smile]

Hi folks, sorry I have been away for a while, my mojo has taken a battering recently and I've done very little.  Anyway, enough of that, I think it may be returning slowly as I have managed to do a bit of PE without wanting to run and hide so here are a few pics:-













Not a lot to see but pretty time consuming stuff!  I am beginning to wonder if in some cases PE is used when it is not really adding any value, that little box being an example.  This could have been produced easily in plastic and the end result would be the same.

Has anyone ever tried putting the Lancaster PE bomb rack from Eduard together?  I started and failed miserably, folding was near on impossible and when it came to slotting the parts together, the slots in the etch had not gone right through so the parts would not mate.  I need to cut a slot in the brass which is ridiculously narrow and I can't think of a way to do it.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Regards

Chris

Hi all.  Is there a problem with the forum, no posts in the GB for 24 hours!

Here are the latest pic's:-

Some of the interior sprayed and some more PE




It's actually black but it looks quite grey under the light




After much deliberation, I went with Tamiya XF71 for the interior green.  Looks identical to some of the reference photos I have


Bit more PE, adhesive still wet on controls but will disappear when dry


Again, adhesive showing on IP but still looks ok I think






Well that's the progress so far, hope you approve.

Regards

Chris

Well I can only speak for myself, but I'm speechless.

Chris, the PE is an amazing piece of work (I shudder to think what we will see when your mojo is on a high). The interior detail is stunning.
Come on, you've got to be pleased with that.

Forum tends to go quiet at weekends (think their partners have some work to do around the house....go on lads tell me I'm wrong).

Beautiful work mate. Big thumbs up from me [thumb]

I always assumed the weekends were "dead" because you guys had bench time lol.

Superior work Chris! Top level professional work!
Keep doing that. [smile]

Yeah great work Chris, your PE work is lovely and neat.
I have the Lancaster bomb rack in PE in 1:72 and yeah, it looks a daunting prospect. I'll let you know how I go when I do it (might enter it in the GB yet, see how my mojo is holding up).
And I've been quiet because I've been masking and PEing the Stuka canopy (and sanding, sanding, sanding).
Not much to show yet. Last piece will be done today. [smile]
