You're not wrong Joe, and funny you should mention that Colin....


Now somehow or other I managed to have lost one of the wing to engine filler parts. However, I luckily have the old Airfix version hiding in the loft, so its donated its upper starboard wing to the cause. A little cutting and sanding and it seems to have come out OK.


Started work on the turrets and as you can see have treated it to a set of resin barrels. The kit parts are actually OK, maybe being slightly oversize is the worst you can say about them.


I think a coat of primer is due, but I'll better get my finger out and get the crew done!!!!


Cheers, Neil

Well, crew done. Took a bit longer than planned, and I ended up ditching the Airfix crew and getting a Revell set. So in the end, most of the figures are a mix of modified standard pilots and Revell bits and pieces.


Masking and paint next...

Hi all. Firstly, apologies for the lack of posts and progress, but a sudden and unexpected career change kinda forced all model making activities onto the back burner for a while. However, things are now sorted and the Lanc is complete, though not quite how I was planning.


I've included a few teaser pics here, but will post completed shots in the "Finished" section.


Thanks to those who have followed, and apologies again.


Cheers, Neil
