Had to build nose section up for the front gunner and bomb aimers blister 3 times!!! working from the plans found they are 3mm out from the bilster pack you get the bombaimers blister 3mm larger than drawings think i've finally got it about right bit of shaping to do and remove the center this was the simplest way of getting around the problem, just hope that 3mm does'nt spoil the overall finish!
Rear Turret ...
Working on the tail gunners section at same time for fitting the tail wing...
Still a lot of shaping to do! and then the fittings for the 303's
With that Thanks to Larry of Lancaster Archive and some great pictures he took of the rear turret started making the mounting for the 303's this is a draft version… of the left hand half.... will make in either 1.5mm ply or plasti-card...
Only area that i have had a long haul has been the 303's two firms in the states have folded after accepting my order (was begining to think i was jinxed ) no funds had changed hands so was lucky there, had several say yea no problem only a couple weeks later sorry cant do that scale!
this is the plans design on the guns & fitting for the lanc I was not happy with it knowing it will be on display at times i wanted them to look a little more realistic, finding Jamie in Arizona was a blessimg took 8 months! see Browning 303's for the guns.
Mid Upper Turret ...
still some work to do made the hole for the turret to fit.... this took some time had to make sure in right postition, I did'nt fancy re-skinning the top section again!
bottom half is made from a plastic container (cream in this case!) beginnings of the gun mounts ... and the two "operating levers " made from a couple of the modelling pins!
