Default 1/72 Matchbox Lancaster

Okay, another model going on the table. This one is for the Matchbox Group Build on Britmodeller, going from now until February.

To start, is the standard ol' Matchbox Lanc.




Then add a few extras...



...and shake up well!

I started by dropping the flaps.


I need to thin down the plastic and then create some rib detail inside. I'm going to try scratching it first, but there are PE set if it becomes too much of a hassle.

And I glued the nose pieces onto the fuselage sides in preparation for adding some interior structure and then the PE.


I'm going to use the kit's raised detail to engrave some in and then sand off the raised stuff. And I need to clean the join between the nose pieces and the sides. It's not terrible, but it ain't good either!

Then I'll have to be on my best, and hasty, behavior! Here, have some popcorn.

Got a little more done. After a little snafu with the styrene chosen to build the box for the flaps, I now have the correctly sized plastic. I found some angled styrene in my cache of plastic, and it is perfectly sized for it.



I cut the side being glued down to help it bend, then glued it down. I ended up using all my little black clamps to also make sure it sat flat and didn't bend out the way it wanted.




And with the wing taped to test the fit. It's flush except for at the edges, which I'll trim some to help the wing halves seat together. There's also a little step at the extreme edges, but that will help at the end and serve as a gluing surface for when the flaps go back on, and they'll disappear under that.



Next is to finish boxing the area in, and then start no the ribs.

Or gluing the wings together...

Did that first instead. After that, then I'll finish boxing in the area, cutting out the marker lights, and then do the ribs.

Drying.


As that's doing that, I ran a needle along the raised lines and then sanded them out.




And then to reposition the rear door. I have been told, and the Airfix kit agrees, that it is too far forward.




The Airfix Lancaster is being held near as a 'go to' for the panel lines. I won't be going crazy, but just busying it up a bit.

Til next time. Soon hopefully...

Default Re: 1/72 Matchbox Lancaster

I jumped around a little bit this morning. Last night while testing the wing-fit, I noticed a flexing in the fuselage, (which is not glued together yet.) On the off-chance there is still some play after it's all glued together, I pulled out the misc pipe bag and found two sizes that should do the trick.

After a lotta eye-balling, a tiny little measuring and then drilling, I have this.


The larger pipe will not be glued, as I want a little play just in case my measurements are slightly off. It's just there for horizontal support anyway. The small diameter pipe will be cut and then glued into either wing, and they should slip together at the end.


Is it just me, or does that look like a funky train engine..?
