Just arrived on my front porch

May 11, 2019 · in Aviation · · 7 · 2.8K

Looks like H-K did their research with Mark Postlethwait's Dambusters research. They've got the first accurate markings and camo of Gibson's G-George (some minor but important variation on the factory scheme, limited to his airplane only).

All the lovely detail of the first kit.

  1. What a picture of a box? Talk about twisting the knife...not even a teaser of plastic.

    I've been following "Just Jane's" restoration and it looks as if there will be a third Lancaster to grace the skies. That would be a neat formation. I would assume that a article is in order to make amends for showing just a box. Now if Sir Peter could make his movie...

    Here is a teaser for Jane.

  2. 1:32? Jesus! These new kit manufacturers must believe we modelers are all living in huge houses... Even a 1:72 four engined plane barely fits into my cabinet - or this is just me?

    • I'm with you on size. I have all the Monogram 1:48 multi-engine kits and the Italeri 1:48 AC-130 and I'm now looking at selling them off. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE BUILD TOM!

  3. You must have a big porch! Enjoy... keep us posted on the build of the model and the addition to the porch...

  4. go to the auto parts paint store and get you a gallon of MEK

  5. Oh my! That baby looks superb. Build a shelf because she a beast to display.

  6. Um, did it fit on your porch?

    I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Wow.
