Should be interesting.

Seen a few of the Revell 1/32 Lysander kits going for pretty good money on EBay recently. Between £30-£40 seems about average, with the "Rare" sign attached, of course.


"First, shalt thou take out the Holy pin. Then, shalt thou count to three - no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shall thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that then thou shalt proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number is reached, then lobbeth thou thy Holy hand grenade of Antioch towards thy foe who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it. Amen"

I've seen those Revell kits at shows in Belgium for about 15 a 20 Euros.

 

Nobody wants them anymore.Same for the other Matchbox repops.The Spitfire Mk 22 sometimes goes for only 10 Euros.And still it's left unsold.

 

I often wondered why Revell never did the matchbox Me 109.They did all the others. :hmmm:

Thanks Maru! :)

 

Mostly into research atm so building might be a bit slow, but I intend to do ribs inside the canvas parts of the body.

I started adding some ribs.

The frame seems to fit pretty good, and may only need some minor adjustments.
 
Now I need to finish that side and start the other side. :)

I remember seeing a Lysander at the Canadian Warplane Museum, couldn't imagine being flown into occupied Europe in one of these... Nice additions in the cockpit, how is the fit of the parts on a dry fit?

Thanks Brad and Don! :)

 

So far it's pretty good. Will see how it fits when the frame is assembled.

The stringers really make quite the difference. Looking forward to more.

Thanks Tom! :)

 

Building been a bit slow, but I've been busy with other things. :)

I've made some progress.

When the other side is done, I can start with wires, cables and stuff to spice it up a bit.
