Model Description


There are many parts to this model and a lot of detail. The instruction are easy to follow, but care has to be taken with some parts as these parts should not be fitted as per the instructions but left to last, as they can be easily damaged or lost.
I used an airbrush using SMS paints which I found was very easy to use. The cleaning of the air brush was also a advantage when using a lacquer thinners but I heeded to have a good ventilation and a spray booth because of the fumes.
I added a dark wash to the finished before the the clear flat coat.


Note from the editor: More photos will be added to the album after this Lancaster makes a light tent appearance…..RjT
