Nice progress. Good luck with the build Sir.
Looking good, watching 🙂
looking good already!
doing this one at the minute too!, so will watch how you get on!
The flight engineer of Grog's the Shot was my mate's Dad, Fg/Off James McQuaid DFC. That's him sitting on top of the canopy, for which he got told off afterwards! His son Alastair has written up the history and specific features of LM739 HW-Z in Model Aircraft Monthly Jan 2008 issue. He suggested a while ago to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight that since Grog was such a distinctive Lanc, they might consider painting up their Lanc in this scheme. This was politely declined on the grounds that boozing and flying was not an 'appropriate' combination. Fortunately Revell had no such qualms, so you can imagine our joy when they decided to release this kit with these markings. As I recall Alastair did provide quite a lot of info to Revell on HW-Z from his private archive and they sent him one of the first kits in return. Don't tell anyone, but we've both decided to build the Hasegawa Lanc instead...Anyway, look forward to following your build.
Thanks to all your comments!
@Andy, I am also watching your double build as well.
Great story @Neil! Thanks for sharing!
I have a month delay due to lack of time because of work issues, but I will advance a little bit in December and continue in February due to summer vacations(it is hot down here right now)
how did you do the wood desk? looks great.
nice start, I take a seat
Thanks Spanjaard and Stefan. For the wood desk I painted brown with acrylic and(after dried) then I put a thin coat of Oil brown paint diluted with thinner for oil paints and let it dry a few days. With that I achieve the wood grains
Have this one in the stash too, so taking a seat. Great start.
Thanks Gary. It is a great Kit. And better price than the Airfix one.

Nice, which kit is it?
Thanks Lukasz. AZ model kit. Very flawed and bad fitting(also poor instructions). Anyway a lot of fun working with putty. I had chosen this kit due to the Midway markings and historical accuracy. Here is the link.
TBD-1 Devastator (Admiral ADM7215, 1:72)
Doesn't look like AZ at all, honest 👍
