You know, I swear I'm going mad.  I seem to be reading things into what people are saying that quite simply aren't there.  And frighteningly, it seem to be getting more and more common.

I'm not sure he's entirely correct when he told you that the shape of the wing changes - in planform it doesn't, the taper just carries on from the Lancaster quite smoothly into the Lincoln wing. 

Where did I say that Lee?

In planform Lee is right, I think the change is in the dihedral. From the Manchester, through the Lancaster, to the Lincoln, the wingtip height from the ground remained the same.

Here, but it's more me misreading something:

Due to the change in angle of the outer wing panels between the Lancaster and Lincoln the outer engine nacelles are replaced with part 4. For the inner engines part 3 is supplied to replace the front of the nacelle which means that a B. Mk I/III kit can be used.


I thought it said it was a planform change when it meant dihedral.  I refer the honorable gentleman to the statement I made some moments earlier.

Thanks all.  I had looked at Woody's build after I received the conversion and will be using it when I give this a go.

I have a Revell Mk I/III and an Airfix Dambuster in the stash but plan to build both of them as is so still need another Lanc.  Have a guy who has made an offer so unless I see one at the Nats in July (if they really happen) I will probably take him up on it.

That's exactly what I meant but for the life of me could I either think of the word or spell it!

Hi, I need for a cousin of mine the instructions for the Gunze Sangyo Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT . Anyone can help?
BTW, I had the links to some sites with a library of instructions, but cannot find them anymore. Any suggestions?

This site doesn't have what you want, but it does have a lot of instructions.

Lovely car kits, those Gunze Sangayo ones, although they tend to be curbside without engines etc.

I have one of their Daytona Cobra kits, which has a white metal chassis built just like the full size one, amazing stuff. I've stuffed a Ford 289 in there though, filched from an AMT Cobra kit.

I've only been building it for about 20 yrs, with luck I'll have it done before I'm 100....
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
