Hong Kong Models has released photos of the tooling samples for their highly anticipated 1/32 Avro Lancaster.
As the Lancaster has “a very complicated shape” and “tons of exterior and internal detail,” the project has been underway for some time and seen continual CAD modifications. The tooling design and fabrication is also said to be extremely complicated, although the results are now beginning to emerge.
The company states that surface details have not yet been added, as the tooling process will continue until June or July. When complete, the model will reportedly represent the Mk 1 and include markings for R5868 “S-Sugar” of 467 Squadron RAAF, which became the first bomber to complete 100 missions.
