THE CANOPY

The Lancaster needed a canopy making from scratch as this was one of the final large parts missing that was needed to finish the Lanc. We had already made parts for the outer skin and rudder pedals so Martin asked Able to take on the challange.

We had parts from an original Lancaster and the Avro WW2 plans to work from. The frame work was made completely in steel tube unlike the original that was part metal and part wooden.

The canopy is soon to be fitted and we will be adding more pictures as soon as we can.
