HK’s new 1/48 Lancaster
The scale-down of the excellent H-K 1/32 Lancaster to 1/48 ships next month.
MSRP US$107.00 – the 45-year old Tamiya Lancaster lists for $130.00 according to the Tamiya America website.
For those who may be interested, Kits World Decals has a large number of various Lancasters, all with nice nose art. Sprue Brothers has all in stock as of my order of “Pistol Packin’ Mama” just now, but you might want to not waste time getting one if you’re interested. When the B-17F came out, all the KW B-17F decals disappeared from stock in about three days.
One other thought: you won’t have to spend $40 on the Belcher Bits corrected engine nacelles to replace the horrid ones in the Tamiya kit.
