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.


I've a habit of starting things and not finis

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.
