Thanks a bunch Muhammed ^_^

I Love old war birds and the Lancaster was pound for pound the best bomber of its day.
Now I just have to make everything else look just as good.

just a quick heads up for ya, the upper turret was removed for the dambusters variant of the lancaster as there wasnt enough room for it and the upkeep bomb ;) great work on the lanc.

best of luck in the challenge :)

thanks tom that was a good catch. I went back to double check my sources and your right, that model did not have a mid gun.

I have started on my model of the dame and my team mate Yelena has started working on the water effects. And so far so good ^_^
