the modeller claims he's reverse engineering the instructions by building this for the ppl who have bought the molds. nothing has been said about what they intend to DO with the molds aside from they paid "the price of a Ferrari". to me that implies *only* the Lanc molds... and why buy 'em if not to release a kit?

so this could get (even more) interesting...

I think the Handley Page was at the same stage as the Lanc so here’s hoping!

Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

I think I need to eat more than I need a 1/32 Lancaster. Hhmmmm, I've been meaning to lose a bit of weight though...

Well if they do produce a 1/32nd scale Handley Page bomber, it will be at least 600 euros. The Lancaster had a wingspan of 102 feet versus 100 feet for the Handley but the HP has twice as many wings with a lot more exterior parts.

if anything it was further along. wonder who tooled it? i'm cautiously optimistic that it could surface in some form.

the photos are from Border's Facebook page announcement. i'd imagine it was from their assembly of the test shot.

no idea if that price reflects what Border are charging, but usually MBK don't jack up prices.
