Wingnut Wings are develping 1/32 - Avro Lancaster B.Mk.1/III and Avro Lancaster B.Mk.III "Dambusters" kits for release in 2019. I think having seen Wingnuts quality in there kits I know which Lanc I will be going for:-

The CAD's look great and will put the cat among the pigeons and if the quality and accuracy is anything like their 1/32 WW1 kit's, though don't seem have any aft fuselage interior detail like the HKM Lanc and no clear fus parts though this is only on the first batch of HKM.

Interesting idea to have removable outboard wing sections for ease of display and WWII era fabric covered elevators.

Better still, the owner of Wingnut Wings is Peter Jackson who is the man behind the Dambusters movie remake, so has a vested interest.

Peter has had a life long interest in scale modelling and, after seeing the movie The Blue Max as a young boy, First World War aviation as well. He is very pleased to be able to share his passion for high quality scale models of First World War aircraft with like minded hobbyists through Wingnut Wings and hopes that modellers will get as much enjoyment out of these models as he does. Peter's other interests include vintage aircraft, military history, movie memorabilia and film.

I will be interested in the WNW Dam Busters version, and having the HK Lanc on pre order it will be interesting to compare the 2 kits.

I think it will be interesting to see who wins that head-to-head battle Drool

The other interesting thing is that the Wingnut Wings bomber kit gives you two options of engine type: the RR Merlin XX (for the B.Mk.1) or Packard V-1650-1 Merlin 28 (for the B.Mk.III)

The Dambuster version only gives the Packard V-1650-1 Merlin 28.

The HKM 1/32 Lancaster bomber kit, only gives you the RR Merlin XX option for the B.Mk.1

The Packard Merlin was built in the USA.

If they are up to the usual Wingnut Wings quality I would certainly be interested in the Dambuster kit.
