Well it’s finally complete. The Lancaster didn’t take me nearly as long as the B-26 but it sure put up a great fight. The end result has surprised me. I really didn’t think it would turn out that well. Given the quality of the build added to the aged decals, I thought I was going to have a mediocre Lancaster. The weathering turned it around, I think. I opted to make it nice and battle worn. I’m very happy with the turnout.
The size of this aircraft really amazes me now that it’s sitting next to the B-26 and B-24 builds. I don’t think I have ever had the opportunity to see the real product in person so to see it next to something that I have actually been inside really puts it into perspective. I’d like to get a few pictures of the three kits together eventually. I’m thinking with the size of the three, it’ll be an outside shoot.
