The big glass house glued, it was a bit tricky to get all pieces in place, the fit was not stellar….

I had to put in some small supports for the roof piece to fit over the wing root, and it took a lot of sanding to get the wind screen to fit.

The exhaust pipe glued to the cowl; I opened the end myself….

It grows….

Yes, I know that the cockpit inner frames should have been interior green, but I painted the window panes black by accident!

 

Call it a senior moment or brain-fart….  :doh:

 

Well, the frames will be black on this one!

 

I use pieces of foam from old Eduard packages, perfect for masking canopies!

Thanks all!  :D

 

 

I should do a dry-fit, but everything fitted so well that I glued them in place!

Damn, this thing are big!

Long and thin wings, but It looks to be much sturdier then a Fieseler Storch!

 

All masked up and ready for primer….

The stairs glued to the side, but only two small attachment points at the top looked too weak!

 

I added some bracing at the lower part and they are indeed there on the real plane!

Thanks, Mike and Maru!  :D

 

 

Time to give the engine cowl some attention…

 

I started with several coats of Alclad Black Microfiller primer to get rid of all small scratches left from sanding and polishing.

Then I started with a coat of stainless steel and then Pale Burnt metal, Exhaust and Manifold at the exhaust pipe.

 

I think I got it quite well, I´m satisfied!

The collector ring masked and the entire cowl painted with Alclad Black Microfiller once again to give a final, even coat for the camouflage.

Now the whole aircraft are painted with Alclad Black Microfiller Primer….

I have started painting the camouflage, first color is Medium Sea Grey (Hu.165)….

IMG_0029

 

 

The cowl received the same color….

 

 

IMG_0030

 

 

A few days later I masked for the Dark Green (Hu.163)

 

I shape the edges with Masking Putty and fills in the rest with pieces of tape….

Ready to go….

 

 

IMG_0087

 

 

The Dark Green masked and now I´m masking for the Coal Black (Hu.85)….

A quick test to check for the masking Is somewhat even between the cowl and fuselage…

Painted with Alclad Clear Kote Gloss…

After a few days drying time, I could get the decals on, not so many on this aircraft.

 

 

IMG_0271

 

 

Decaling done….

Most decals went on without a hitch, but a few did silver quite a bit.

Typically old Revell decals!

I have searched for AM decals for the Lysander and found none in 1/32!

All windows demasked and all remaining small parts glued to the model, some paint touch-up´s, an antenna from lycra is strung between fin and mast and the kit is done!

I do have to confess, I didn´t have any high expectations on this kit from the -70`s at all, but I was very positively surprised.

 

Good fit, even very good fit in places, a bit spartan in the details of course and the decals were fair, but no more then that.

 

But on the whole It was a very fun build, some scratch building included and I had a blast!

If I can find another Revell kit I will build a Lizzie in the Green/Brown daytime scheme.

 

Finally I managed to complete a kit within the timelimit of a GB, wohah!    :thumbsup:

 

A first for me!  :thumbsup:

 

Cheers! :beer:
