The 134” Lancaster is a scaled up version of the 72” version and incorporates the exact same build techniques as its’ smaller sister. So for building information please refer to the72” Lancaster pdf down load.
Originally designed for 4 speed 600 motors with gearboxes, back in 2002, model will now benefit greatly from Brushless and Lipo batteries.
For IC conversion, 4 x .40 size 2-stroke or .52-4 stroke engines will provide adequate power.
The model is design for retractable undercarriage.
Plan, canopy, cowls and turrets, are available as is a CNC pack and wood pack.
The CNC pack includes, ply fuselage formers, ply wing & tailplane ribs, nacelle structure and spar braces.

Each motor has its own battery, electronic speed control, receiver and receiver battery. The red wire from the ESC is pinned back and only the signal wire and the black wire leads to the receiver's throttle channel plug. 
The wing's spars are bolted to the fuselage's frames by 2 1/4 inch bolts which engage blind nuts in the frames; making a very tight joint at the aircraft's centerline. 

The main landing gears are purchased from the designer's store.

The gear is pneumatically actuated.

The multiple receivers and batteries give the plane several layers of redundancy. 

Most of the forward area lacks detailing which will be added after she becomes a seasoned reliable flyer.
All the glazing and finishing items are available separately from the kit manufacturer.
