Saw this advertised on TV, it looks an awesome model, but the total cost is nearly 620 over 2 and a bit years! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Very cool looking arrangement, but I'd rather buy a kit or scratch build for the modelling side of it.

I know that it is expensive and if i saw this as a kit for this price in a shop no way in the world would i pay over six hundred quid for it,there is a fair amount of documentation with it too so it's not just the kit.
Also that fact that it's spread over a long period it takes away the pain and it's cheaper than smoking http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If you like this then you will love this

Even bigger Lanc... (http://www.scale3d.co.uk/5952/index.html)

I'm a modeler myself so when I saw the Add I did think... Shall I...

I swiftly decided no. I figured It'll cost over 500 and would take well over a year and I have no experience with wooden/fabric kits like this. I'd get a plastic (academy if there is own, revel/airfix if not) kit and build it at your own leisure for under 100 i got a 1/72 scale Lanc and that is big enough. 1/48 at most, 1/32? Man your brave! Then again I'm 17 so I have better stuff to do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif Like, you know, university and getting a job and all that nonsense!

With that many issues, how true to life is this thing going to be?
It had better be detailed down to the last rivet, not to mention working internals and controls. That would be a model worth talking about.

Take for instance that fellow who built a scaled down Ferrari with a working V12, transmission and even a working electrical system. THAT was amazing.

Lancaster Bomber? What's that, some kinda B-24 variant? The only allied bombers in WW2 were American, right? (Yes, I do know better, so don't get your panties all in a wad)

What was the purpose of your comment pogobbler? Are you, like me, wishing there was a Lancaster or Halifax in IL-2, or is it something eles?

On a slight side note, I wonder why the designers of the Lanc decided on a mid-wing design? Seems to me that there must be spars and braces that have to go through the fuselage for rigidity. Correct?? Didn't they get in the way? Was there some kind of crawl space so one could go from the front of the bomber to the back? Our American designs used either the low or high wing design to avoid such nonsense.
