    Avro Lancaster Project

    After much planning, I finally started to build today. Yay. It doesn't look like much so far, but it's the start of the throttle quadrant.

    Off paper on to wood...now that's what I'm talkin' about...

    Looking great mate. I wish I could get my woodwork as neat and even.

    I'll be watching your project with extreme interest. I love the Lanc. Good luck..

    Well this part I decided to do out of aluminum with my friend's help. Here's some pics showing where we are at. The faceplate is nearly complete in the pics...the letters and arrows need painting, but we'll do that once we bend it over the housing and screw it down. We have modified a fews things here and there for ease of construction. I made the throttle and airscrew handles today as well as the knobs (George made those). They won't be identical to the real ones, but close enough. To get the shape of the real ones was very tough to lathe properly. All in all, it's coming together nicely and I'm hoping we will have it all together by the end of next weekend.

    Beautiful craftsmanship looks almost identical to the real one. Nice work. This might give you some ideas as well, http://www.btinternet.com/~Jeremy.a.hall/article.htm
