Nice work guys.

Anyone else a little disappointed with the quality of the seat given by Hachette? Im sure there are alot more parts to come for it, base etc
Just from what i seen on here with some of the other detail parts they look the business.

Hi
Ready for yellow circle. This model is perfect for scratchbuilding all the xtras because of the scale and general construction method . lots of work ahead.

I'm replacing the seat cushions with epoxy putty (Games Workshop GreenStuff) which looks far better than the wood. Photos to follow, when I've finished ;)

Hi
Puzzled by the navigator seat I don't think it was fixed in position (to let crew past ) . The only pic I have seen has a bracket from the pole to the base of the seat allowing it to move in and out as in attached pic . can someone varify please. my build technique is , get the part , reserch on the net , if it looks ok use it , if not modify until satisfied .

Hi Tanken

Yea the navigator’s seat stands in the "air" with a rotating arm to have flexibility for traffic movements *see pic below.

But in the link below it does not.. maybe just a postwar modification? Anyway a very useful link of 360 panorama inside lanc cockpit :) down the bottom of page

Sorry not sure how to post pic on here just yet etc and also not sure on copyright issues for this one.

Cheers

That 360 panorama is a brilliant find :) Shows that I've painted my control quadrants wrong though :oops:

It also shows that the pilot's chair didn't have a seat cushion, as the pilot sat on his parachute ! However, I'm leaving the cushion in mine as I don't want to go to the effort of modifying the seat frame.

It's best to post a link to a photo from the 'net rather than copying and re-posting the photo. It can save problems.

Some pilots did not sit on chute as it was very uncomfortable and used chest attached chutes instead . therefore the seat cushion.
thanks fool looks like the seat was hinged from the pole as in your pic . I can get inside our lanc but only on wednesday , have to get a day off to do it.

Ok found this photo of the navigator’s seat. Look's like it is hinged to the pole

http://www.467463raafsquadrons.com/Aircraft/Images/detail_lanc_06.jpg

Notice the colour of the interior.

Taken from this website. A couple of other photo's too

Sorry guys but that photo is actually from the nose section of the Lanc at the Imperal War Museum.

But asking around on one of the other forums the seat is hinged :)

Hi,

I don't know if this helps at all: The Nav's seat on the BBF Lancaster is of the type pictured earlier i.e. hinged at the support pole, this is a B MK.1 aircraft which is the same mark as 'S' for Sugar ...however, there are always ongoing modification programmes carried out on aircraft so of course the 'mod' state could be different between these two aircraft ...so, not a lot of help really :oops: :roll:

Pete.

Hi
Yes bench seats were much later . we should be looking at swivelling type fotr B1. also wireless ops seat back was attached to curved plate in front of main spar and not free standing .

Superb work - have a K.

I guess those are scratch built details you've added ?
