    Hi all
    While currently on holiday in beautiful lincolnshire my wife and I visited East Kirkby last monday.
    the Halifax cockpit had been wonderfully reassembled by the team.
    what a wonderful museum East Kirkby is. Will certainly return for another visit.
    Also the first time I looked inside a Lancaster.
    wonderful.
    Cheers
    Cees

    Thanks Tony and the cockpit will be named after the Halifax he was a flight engineer on. I am very pleased how this has turned out.

    Saw it a few weeks ago and wondered if it was your old one Cees. Looks nice and worthy tribute to the third brother who was lost in a Halifax

    Good morning chaps,
    If all goes to plan this morning will see a flat pack Halifax cockpit showing up on the doorstep at East Kirkby. It was picked up last Saturday. And although I am sorry to see it go it has found a fantastic new home. And I still have a Hampden cockpit to work on.
    Thanks to all of you on this forum who have helped and supported me over the years (you know who you are).
    So Halifax HQ The Netherlands is no more.
    Cheers
    Cees

    Cees, whilst it be good to see the results of all your hard work, it must be a wrench to see it go?

    Is it a permanent move or just a loan?

    Tony,
    I did just that between pulling him out en putting him back again.
    The cockpit is weathered due to normal wear and tear. You know as well as I do that
    us modellers tend to exaggerate quite a bit and models are often over-weathered.
    If you look into the cockpit there the bulkhead edges have worn here and there, throttle
    box levers knobs have chipped paint, grime has collected in nooks and crannies, dust everywhere.
    As it should be.
    Cees
