    very inspiring build Phil, in this scheme the lines of the aeroplane stand up more than usual splinter boo boo. I really like it, thank you for sharing.



    Thanks Martin very much appreciated, all my pleasure to share with you guys.

    Great job on on the Lysander! I remember building one ...I think was in 1/32, years back.

    Maybe the one by matchbox........ I think it was a Testor's  Re-box but not sure. Always

    Liked its weird looks.

    Thanks for the comment, for a fairly old moulding and the re-boxing with a little bit of fore thought, it’s an enjoyable build…..

    Very nice Lizzie, Phil. 
    One of my fondest memories of the builds of my youth was the venerable 1/48 Hawk Lizzie. This one certainly beats it hands down :) .

    One day, maybe, I’ll feel like the 1/32 Matchbox deserves my attention. There is a striped yellow and black target tug scheme that makes me dream. But I would sooooooo much prefer a new mold 1/32 Lizzie …


    Thanks Hubert much appreciated. I’d only built the old Airfix header bagged 1/72, that dates us………I’d love to do a 1/32 let’s hope someone like the old WnW guys or ICM or ZM, I doubt anyone else would the the old Lizzie justice.

    What a strange looking bird Phil, but I have a soft spot for fugly designs. Your rendition is absolutely beautiful, to answer your question, I did enjoy 

    Thanks Rob, I also love the design of the Lizzie, specification was issued 1934, first flew 1936, issued to squadrons in 1938. One of these strange pre war oddities. Really enjoyed the build…..

    Very nice Phil, thank for not withholding your JU-88 ;). I like the North African livery and how you performed it, a true beauty, which makes me thinking not for the first time, if I should use that scheme for my Do-17.

    Cheers Rob

    Thanks Rob much appreciated, I do like the North African livery as well, I’ve the ICM He111  H6 NA. You should definitely do the Do 17 in it……

  6. At last I have collated the pictures of the finished project.

    Eduard Profipack Lysander Mk III ( ex Gavia ). Really enjoyed this build as the wing structure and position was a challenge and for once I’m pleased with the finish. One mistake was I forgot to take off the masking for the spat lights….hope you enjoy…..

  7. Peter, I’ve been experimenting with spraying the engine with Xtreme metal gunmetal / Alu and spraying semi black acrylic over the top. You can then scrub some of the black off to show the bare metal. Just a thought…..

    Looks good, Phil!  Leaving the gun bays open?  I would hate trying to get PE covers to fit the airfoil perfectly.

    Thanks Gaz, the Eduard covers are thin and I’ve preformed them, I think they will be ok. On the Wildcat it was only the tray covers which were hinged……I think….

    Primer coats looks smooth and ready for the color. Glad the weather improved so the air brush work can keep rolling alon

    Thanks Peter, ironically the weather last Friday was 33 degrees followed by Sunday at 14 degrees. The roots took 3 attempts, I may just revisit again……
