Welcome back!  Last time we had just completed the interior and internal framework, front end and cockpit of the big 1/32nd Scale HKM Lancaster Mk.IB.  This second installment will bring the engines, wings, fuselage, bomb bay and wheel-wells together, leaving the final assembly and finish for the last segment of this three-part review. 

Work is going along smoothly, with just a few exceptions here and there.  While I had a few problems here and there, the overall build is simple and straightforward, and the fit is excellent.  Let's get back to work!
