Kits World - Warbird Decals 1/32 Avro Lancaster 'Lonesome Lola'
Avro Lancaster 'Lonesome Lola' LL845 WS"L" 9 Squadron, RAF Bardney, ( 5th group) Lincolnshire.
This aircraft replaced Lancaster Mk111 W5010 WS"L" which failed to return from an operation to Leipzig on the 19/20th February 1944.
LL845 undertook its first operation with IX Sqn on the 15/16th March 1944 when P/O Clark and crew (including F/O Matthews) took it to Stuttgart, this was P/O Clarke's 10th operation.
The artwork on the photograph shows 8 bombs which indicates that it had carried out 8 operations, the records show that the 8th operation was carried out on the 10/11th April 1944 when Ft/Sgt Horne and crew took it to Tours.
The 9th operation was carried out on the 11/12th April when P/O Clark and crew (including F/O Matthews) took it to Aachen . Assuming the art work (bombs) were added/painted after each operation the photograph must have been taken on the 11th April 1944 prior to P/O Clark undertaking the operation to Aachen. LL845 operated with IX Sqn until the end of the war.
On the 15th September 1944 S/L Pooley and crew flew it to Yagodnik in Russia for the first Tallboy" operation against the German Battleship Tirpitz" by IX and 617 Sqn's. W4964 WS"J" another IX Squadron Lancaster was the only aircraft to obtain a direct hit on the Tirpitz" during this operation, this caused the Germans to take it further South to Tromso hopefully for repair, however this became within range of Lancaster's flying from a forward base in Scotland if the mid upper gunner was taken out and extra long range petrol tanks were inserted into the fuselage.
Two more Tallboy" operations were undertaken by IX and 617 on the 29th October and finally on the 12th November 1944 when it was capsized. LL845 took part on the 29th October operation but was iced up and could not take off on the 12th November.
LL845 carried out its last wartime operation on the 25th April 1945 when F/L McIntosh and crew took it to Berchtesgaden .
On the 12th May 1945 15 IX Sqn Lancaster's including LL845 took part in Operation Exodus", their cargo this time was not bombs but was 336 Ex POW's who were successfully repatriated to the UK. Total operations - 97

Kits World - Warbird Decals 1/32 Avro Lancaster 'I'm Easy'
Avro Lancaster Bomber 'I'm Easy' LM453 WS-E
On the night of 4th 5th July 1944, Bomber command sent a force of 231 Lancaster's and 15 Mosquito's to attack the V1 supply depot at Saint Leu D'Esserent. With the target area having been identified previously, the air crews mapped their route in order to miss major towns and known flak installations which they might encounter over France. What had not been foreseen was the amount of Luftwaffe fighters which had been assembled to defend the supply depot. This force would have a serious outcome with no less than 13 RAF Lancaster's being shot down over occupied territory.The bombing raid over Saint Leu D'Esserent was planned at night with the 'bombs away' set for 01H45 am. This particular night was a clear sky with bright moonlight. The attacking force assembled over England between 23h30 and started it journey over the English Channel and the French coast.
9 Squadron sent LL845, W4964, JA957, JA690, LL785, ME833, EE136, LM453, LL884, LL914, DV161, PB146, ME809, DV396

It's 2018 and I finally have my hover car.  It stared as a 1/35 scale POS resin staff car that I picked up for $5 at a swap meet. The rest is parts from the spares bin. I was inspired by the retro-future hover cars of Alejandro Burdisio but added a little bit rat-rod and a little bit mad-max to the mix.

SCI-FI & SPACE / Junk Tank Rock JTNCA
« Last post by MaschinenKrueger on Thu Jul, 19, 2018, 01:06:PM »
This is from an obscure series called Junk Tank Rock and was only available at the one day event called Wonder Festival held in Japan. This is a very limited run garage kit from the 2008-09 time frame. Less than 100 were ever kitted. The designs only exist as kits; there was never an anime or manga but the line has had influence far beyond it's limited run. You know those wasteland airplane/cars you see online and at model shows? That was kicked-off with this series.   

1/35 scale.

The cockpit hatch was molded closed so I ground out the resin bits and replaced with some styrene strip stock and an SU-152 hatch which is what the resin kit had. There is a small interior and I plan on a figure standing in the hatch. The vehicle is impossibly small but still cool. It was only 13 pieces so went together quickly.

Used the HS method for the chipping.

Finished with oils, enamels, and pigments. The figure is from Evolution Miniatures and was painted with acrylics.
