Cant wait to see progress DD, I know its going to a fantastic model with your skills

Done some work on reinforcing the trailing edges of the inner wings with glass fibre today because its a weak area especially when handling

Then on to the leading edge with the air intakes for the cabin heater and martin cable cutters

Ken, I simply can get over the level of detail and attention to adding all the parts to give your Lancaster the look of a huge Airfix or Matchbox kit. look at the frame of the pilots canopy dome. . . . Now that's meticulous attention to detail Sir.

Lol listen to this man "my skills" lol if my Future sterling looks one-fith as good as your lascaster I will be happy lol.

OK Ken, I can't imagine you needing any more detail than this, but.....these are from the Lancaster MK X Parts Manual. Go nuts, man.

Cheers!

After having a chat with a collague about my F.XX he gave me the example what an Arduino could do (i.e. automation, multifunctions for one TX switch). I gave the example of your Lanc, and it might be an option. I haven`t read back to search it, but have you thought about using an Arduino (nano) for the in-flight movement of the turrets? It doesn`t weigh much, and you can set it up as much as you would like. It takes one thing of your mind for the flying.

Cheers,

Marco

Don, Amazing that is exactly what I need thank you so much!!!

Marco, The turrets are controlled from the engineers radio and are on the aileron and elevator channel, rear turret movement will be the opposite to the front.

So no loading for the pilot during flight but I had thought about using one of my picaxe controllers in the way you describe. I may yet do so to randomise the rear turret movement perhaps

Couple of videos of turret movement, I am happy now with the movement of the front turret but I have some work to do on gun elevation of the rear turret yet

Know what Don I would like nothing more!

Had a drawing day today and got started on the instrument panel assembly, all the dial instruments are in the correct location and I managed to get a start on the throttle housing, probably another 3 weeks work to get all the details on this drawn

Ken, this thing is unbelievable!

Are you planning to enter this into scale competition like top gun? I'm sure your competitors would be sweating bullets.

Ken, did you do drawings of your turrets beforehand? How detailed are they? I would be interested to see how close to the real thing you got with respect to the rear turret. Thanks.

Hi Don,

Yes they are my own drawings but I cant pretend they are anywhere near scale as most of the measurements are just guesses, I think in particular I had to make the turret taller as I had got the dimensions of the fuselage wrong
