    Both Countries are crazy by the same way...When I first visited Malta...I was shocked!!! I saw many things similar to us!!! Roads situation as an example!!! Or the crazy driving!!! Hospitality etc etc!

    No its plastic...I the proper paper leaves lint on the edges...and it doesn't look good for such a small scale.

    Alex this work is too much to describe. All i can say is that you are very rapidly becoming the best modeller i know so far. This is too much and given the small scale you are working to, it becomes even more amazing.

    Hi Brian,
    Although your (Brian Cauchi's) words honor me, I can not accept them. I'm rather small for such a kind of comments. I do not attempt to become one of the best modellers. My purpose is to get my own unique style of modelling, someday. I learned by you for years. I copied many Brian's tips, Rodney Williams way of working on metal, I added some ideas of mine and here we are. A new Hybrid!!!

    Anyway, I'm very glad you liked my update. I hope not disappointed U so far.

    Thank U my Habib!
    Alex

    You are too frigging humble!!! I cannot even begin to do what you are doing. I do strive for detail but my work is in 32nd scale, much easier than what you are working with. It is great and no words you say will alter that a bit. This is truly a masterpiece, it will be the ultimate Lanc. The mother of all Lancasters. I dare anyone to do the work you are doing. Even copying this is difficult.

    TNX so much William.

    Hi guys,

    This is my newest update.



    I Know I’m late again…but the making of the turrets was a nightmare for me…Its turret needs a week of hard work.

    FRONT TURRET
    Unfortunately, the front turret’s detail will be not visible. The thick of the clear part is very fat and there is no opening to show something. Everything is sealed…I suggest to make Vacuumed all the clear parts. It will be a better choice.





    ΜID TURRET
    The Mid turret will be visible at last. I managed to make him removable, so you can lift it by your hands and see all it details very closely. Pay attention on the spent ammunition bags and gunner’s cradle seat.






    REAR TURRET
    Rear turret was the most difficult to be built. The clear part was full of props inside and I had to calculate everything very carefully. Hundreds of dryfits were done in purpose to attach the whole structure properly inside the cupola.





    That’s the final pics guys. The Brownings barrels come from Quickboost and the seatbelts from Eduard. The framing is done by the same way as I did on my P-40.







    That’s all for today guys. CU soon!

    Hi my Habib...
    I'm getting very tired of this...Hopefully I finished with the Interiors and the fuselage is already closed. You cant imagine how painful was this move...for me. Everything are lost in dark...My jack Daniels is empty already...

    Anyway...The next update will be very interesting. You R gonna see the FINAL exteriors of the fuselage.

    Thank U!
