Wingnut wings Lancaster

Recommended Posts

I'd expect very severe pointy footware to posterior contact from Mrs M if I sauntered in with this beauty tucked casually "under arm" I'm afraid.

I reckon it's up to Black Mike Duncan to build us a "testing the stock" model...................😎

By the time I'd be finished a 'Test shot' Wingnut Wings would have completed producing models of all WW1 and WW2 aircraft and would be halfway through the Vietnam era!

However, the good news is I know how you can fund your own purchase of the kit. Video Mrs Miggers giving you a punt up the derrier with said pointy shoes and post it on Youtube, video goes viral and the cash flows in, job done! We'd all watch it. 😀

This could prove to become a reoccuring theme. Think about it; Miggers posts said video of Mrs. Miggers hoofing him up the tail, money comes in, Miggers spends out on a mahoosive WNW Lanc from BlackMike Models, Mrs. Miggers spots the box and Miggers gets another hoofing, more money, more kits, more hoofing... can you see a pattern developing here?

A mix of test shot and CAD renders. It looks extraordinary, but I'll hazard a guess and say that the RRP will probably make the HK kit look very affordable.

There will certainly be a wow factor to this kit; it's sheer size, the surface detail, interior detail, number of parts, and in particular the likely price, will all draw the same response. Wow!

It does look the business, and I'm sure it'll sell but not to me it's just too big i haven't the room for the mosquito let alone that thing

If half that detail makes it from the CAD to the plastic it'll be an impressive beastie. I can't wait to see one in the flesh.

So long as they turn the pressure down on whatever is pumping it up a bit

That was my first impression. The way the images have been lit seems to be emphasising the surface textures, which is not helping. If the effect is derived from a LIDAR scan it goes some way to show that for a model it might be necessary to dial it down a bit. I remember reading a discourse by the guy who used to design Tamiya cars, he went to some length to explain that when designing a model some features on the original might need to be toned down in scale, whilst others given more emphasis.

Seems reasonable enough to me that scaling down from 1:1 will require toning down of details (as well as colours in my opinion) however we do like our panel lines for example. I once took my Airfix 1/72 Vampire T.11 and placed it on the wing of the Montrose Museum's T22 at the wing joint. I could barely get my thumb nail into the real gap but the kit's panel line wasn't much narrower. In reality it shouldn't have been visible at all on the kit but we would all complain if there had been no panel lines moulded in.

The oil canning does look to be a bit overdone, maybe need to have the panels bowed inwards instead of blown out?
