Peter a very kind offer , however everything is now located in England ,Shipping an 8ft by 6ft chunck of Lancaster to Canada would cost the earth .Air Canada seem to be having enough problems at the moment ,What are the chances the RCAF would do a mercy extraction?

Hi Geoff, looks like we cant message you? Windsor is interested in it. How much are you letting it go for and do you have a list of other parts? You can email me at pwhitfield@hotmail.com

Peter you would be better off asking what I do not have,can just about fit out a complete front section.All main panels are made up and fitted out,GEE ,H2S and its computer ,Fishpond ,Monica etc etc.Partially restored FN5 turret fitted on lanc bowl.Rather pleased with it as the hand operating gearbox works and you can rotate the turret.Original control wheel, rudder pedals and the co pilots shafts.Sorry about the bad pics atatched but they five an idea.So sorry you never got to see this lot while it was in Canada.I think we better chat odd site will send you a brief list
