Here we are. The pictures!

There are some of the CADS. These are pre test shot cads and some alterations have been done to these cads to fix errors.

After consulting with Neil and also referencing the original AVRO blueprints all the windows are correct and in the correct place for the Mk1. Lancaster.

There you go! As you can see, and I think Mark will confirm... it's a beast of a size and there's more to it than meets the eye.


Neil has not moulded the barrels of the browning to the breeches. This means that it is much easier to replace them with 1/32 metal barrels. Many builders have been wanting one of these in this scale for a very long time and Neil is determined to produce the best and that takes time to get things just right!

Very nice ,going to be a big part count. Like you said earlier i think doing just the front fuselage to save space is a good idea . I would go for Guy Gibson's V C winner at drop of hat :clap:

I’ll certainly vouch for it being a huge and impressive model. It looked amazing at the show, and that’s without the wings.
It’s such a beast, displaying it will require a lot of space, and/or creativity.
Cheers

Not sure about the Moebius models. It would be nice to see some of them reissued.
Cheers
