    Lancaster parts

    The Lancaster door frame/fuselage section arrived from Berlin.

    There is the suggestion of a red line from the top edge of the first letter of the stencil code. So perhaps an E or an F - so only 800 to choose from.

    In addition to the fuselage there were two castings and a few bits that seem to fit together into a larger piece.

    The castings are large and have quite impressive bolts through them - one is square and one has a circular centre.

    The other section is double skinned - with at least 6 flared holes in it and an edge that has two slots in it.

    Any suggestions for the castings or where the flared hole panel fits ?

      Thanks Tony - still not sure whether it is recoverable to put back in the original shape as a fuselage side. The dural frames are unwilling to return to shape and are quite distorted after falling from the sky...

        I could be pursuaded that the left hand casting in your third pic is part of a gun mount from one of the turrets. Any chance of pics from another angle/dimensions, etc? That said, the big bolts don't add up.

          Allan - as requested. I assume they are all from the tail section as the image of the crash site is a large crater.

            A small panel has a 7E part number which suggests cowl - so part could be from anywhere on the aircraft.

ID:	3872334 An excellent selection of parts, thanks for the detailed photos. Annoyingly, I firmly believed I had a section from the top of the rear door. It has the same rivet pattern and is an edge, but yours shows it as folded ally, where as mine is an extrusion. Must be from somewhere else.

                Ian the top is folded aluminum. The ribs are all dural with rhomboid reinforcers. No real extrusions visible.

                The base is ribbed thin aluminium.

                No detail on what the actual door construction is.

                Kind Regards,

                Brian
