Avro Lancaster B.III

by Randy Lutz

 

Avro Lancaster B.III

 


Tamiya's 1/48 scale Lancaster is available online from Squadron.com

 

Introduction

 

Here are some images of my 1/48 scale Tamiya Lancaster.

The model represents Picadilly Princess, a Lancaster B. Mk. I flown by Flying Officer H. Cowan of No. 424 "Tiger" Squadron, RCAF while based at Skipton-on-Swale England during March of 1945.

 

 

Construction

 

This is the original release of the Tamiya Lancaster B. Mk. I/III and has been upgraded with Belcher Bits wheels, 4,000 lb. cookie and the new Belcher Bits resin engine cowls.

 

 

The model was re-scribed and the cockpit interior and gun turrets have been updated with scratch built details.

 

 

Painting and Markings

 

The paint is Xtracolor and all markings are from the Albatros Sexy Lanc sheet, except for the squadron codes which were painted on, as the Albatros code letters have the wrong shape and colour.

 

 

Please excuse the dust, as I forgot to dust off the model before taking the photos.

A complete build/review article will be appearing in an upcoming issue of SAMI.
