Avro Lancaster Build

Okay I am starting the official thread for this plane that I said I would do. I need to know what bombs drop we want: click here for more info
  • Grand slam (buries itself in the ground with some tail sticking up out of the ground)
  • "Abnormal" 14 x 1,000 lb bombs
  • No code name given 1 (Medium-range low altitude tactical raids) 6 x 1,000 lb + 250 lb GP/HE bombs
  • "No-Ball" 1 x 4,000 lb and up to 18 x 500 lb bombs

The plane is at quarter scale.

BTW, do not forget on DamBusters.

how is the building going I have not seen a post recently. And while the dam buster would be neat getting it to work properly and skip across the top of the water would be difficult.

Well, it`s almost a bunker buster, unless it`s a shallow bunker hidden by turf only, then, that`ll work. haven`t voted yet, but that pic. may be a deciding factor.?? would make for good target practice, in that, you can see your result.

The grand slam (model) is a telephone pole or a 12x12 post turned in a lathe to make the model. Since we are technically not supposed to put pyro technics on models We will just go with kinetic bombardment. The mass/weight of the quarter scale slam made out of pine is 68-69 lbs.

I am encountering some unexpected difficulties with the Grand Slam not "sticking" the landing.

I cannot get the grand slam to bury itself satisfactorily (I can but I don't like that happens between first impact and end of movement). I want it to land like and Olympic Gymnast not a sack of potatoes.

I feel like I am slamming my head against a brick wall with these nacelles, and other British aerodynamic design quarks.
