Quote from: The Wooksta! on May 22, 2020, 04:48:00 PMWhilst you can use a B1/111 kit for the airframe, you do specifically need the different nacelles of the B.II as the conversion parts are geared to go with that kit.Other Lincoln conversions were released prior to the Airfix 2013 tooling and gave you new outer nacelles and geared to go with the 1979 Airfix kit. FWIW, the DB/Flightpath ones are correct and Paragon's are just plain wrong. If it wasn't for the Balckbird release, I'd go with a very expensive combination of Flightpath for the engines and nacelles and Paragon for everything else.
Quote from: The Wooksta! on May 23, 2020, 05:02:14 AMThanks for that, I was sure you had to use the Lancaster II and indeed I've got one for that very purpose in the secondary stash, along with the Blackbird Lincoln.I'd still recommend Woody's build thread, because there's one thing he spotted which no one else has - the rear fuselage on the Lincoln is angled up by three degrees - it was found to be easier to do this to change the angle of the tailplanes. IIRC. he cut the fuselage and put a wedge in to do it.
