  1. Westland Lysander Mk.III (SD) (72024) 1:72 Dora Wings via Albion Alloys The Lysander was developed by Westlands in response to an Air Ministry requirement form and Army Co-operation aircraft in the 1930s. After interviewing pilots it was decided that field of view, low speed handling and a Short Take Off/landing aircraft would be needed. To accomplish this the Lysander would feature a high mounted wing with a large glazed cabin. The wing would feature fully automatic slots and slotted flaps. These would be complemented with a variable incidence tailplane. These w
  2. Have heard via the grapevine that Eduard are releasing the Lysander as a special edition, can anyone confirm? Dave
  3. In project by Dora Wings are 1/72nd Westland Lysander kits Source: https://www.facebook.com/1929101897320378/photos/ms.c.eJxFzNsNADEIA8GOIh4GQ~;~_NnRQU7ne0tjkkWtEdAoLHBlKtvCT7QUgqFeoLdgvWAgf~_ou9EsKeY0~;wAi8AX2w~-~-.bps.a.2340591472838083/2340591612838069/?type=3&theater V.P.

  5. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Dora Wings Lysander Mk.III (SD), with decals from DK Decals sheet "No.161 (SD) Squadron". Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. A full build review will appear in an upcoming edition of Scale Aviation Modeller International.
  6. Hello everyone... I normally don't venture into civil aircraft to often, but had some questions about Westland Lysander's. Did anyone ever use these as Bush planes post war ? Possibly in Canada, Alaska, Australia, New Zealand, or in Africa ? It seems like the type would have been perfectly suitable for bush flying ? If so does anyone know of any photo's or maybe profiles ? Also does anyone know whether or not they could be mounted on floats ? Dennis
  7. A short break from other projects. The one who takes care of the Sir William Stevenson display at the Air Command HQ here in Winnipeg's 17 wing asked me to repair a few models for display. Sir William Stevenson has an interesting story and history and became the inspiration for the writing of James Bond, he is also from Winnipeg and the airport is named after him. I actually never read much on him which I guess is pretty bad for me. The models are two 1/48 Hawk Lysanders and an unknown maker of a Sopwith Camel. One Lysander is a repair that someone else made. The other needs to be built c
  8. When I built my Air-Sea Rescue Avro Anson last year as part of the "Aircraft my Father fixed" series, I did a lot of research on the underwing dinghy stores that it was supposed to have carried. Lacking any definitive pictures of the Anson so equipped I relied upon some photos of Lysanders with pylon equipped dinghy stores. It seemed an obvious extension to then get hold of a Lysander and build one equipped the same way! So I did... I managed to get hold od an old Testors/Hawk kit: Which, although basic was IMO good enough for what I wanted to do. Elsewhere
  9. Hi mates, This year's "Greatest Show on Turf" didn't feature as many aircraft as some previous years (quite a few that were scheduled were scratched in the days preceding due to mechanical and logistic issues), but we were treated to the return of the P-38 and Lysander (which hadn't visited in many years) and most exciting - the de Havilland Mosquito, one of only two (I believe) flying examples of the Wooden Wonder. One thing that never changes year over year is my inability to pose as a good photographer. So apologies in advance for the poor in-air shots - I don't know
  10. I've had the Eduard/Gavia Lysander sat half-finished for some while because I blindly trusted Eduard's research and built the rear cockpit as instructed apart from some scratchbuilt details. I was almost ready to close it up when I read a post here, I think, which mentioned the mods made to the SD unit's aircraft. It's too late to scratch them now, so before I resign myself to completing it as a standard version, do any smart chaps here know whether all of the SD planes were converted? If some were not, my vignette idea can go ahead, but I like to be as accurate as I can.
  11. Being a newbie on Britmodeller (love it) re-visiting his youth, I’m just really getting going again on enjoying building model kits. With my Dad passing on, 10 years ago now, at some point we were going through 'his side' of the wardrobe and I found a couple of Airfix kits – one started and one untouched. There was a Westland Lysander, kit no. 02053 (2nd Tool) in the ‘11E’ packaging and a Spitfire Mk IX, kit no. 02081 in the ‘15C’ packaging - looking at the info on the Airfix Tribute Forum (love it), this dates the purchases as 1994 to 2005+. The Lysander had been started with the e
  12. This is the old Testors Westland Lysander Mk.II from the Italeri reboxing, which I picked up second hand some years back. It includes the addition of the Eduard photo-etch interior and a some scratch building for adding some detail missing from the relatively basic kit. It was a build to fill a gap in my collection and was built around July to September last year (well before Hendie went on his epic and magnificent build of the same kit), Decals are based off the Xtradecal sheet for the centenary of No.II(AC) Squadron which included Lysander KO-O, modified to represent KO-Q. Paints are a m
  13. I succumbed. yes I did. I didn't mean to... honest, but I did. After finishing the Wessex (helicopterous beautifulious) I had fully intended to march on with the train. Unfortunately, until I get my hands on a lathe (... the wife's birthday gone snuck up on me and stole all my funds!) there are only a few small things I can be getting on with. Over the last few visits down to the basement I had hit a bit of a brick wall with the train so I needed a minor diversion. Golly gosh... look what went and fell off the shelf ! I know, I know... I said I wasn't going to do another a
  14. Westland Lysander Mk.III 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK The Westland Lysander is one of the famous British Aircraft which turned out to be obselete in the role it was originally designed for, but had a successful career in a role its designers could never foresee. The design stemmed from an Air Ministry requirement in 1934 for an Army Co-operation aircraft. The design team interviewed pilots to find out exactly what they wanted from the aircraft. From this emerged a design with good low speed handling characteristics, and exceptional short field performance with a good field of view. The aircraft
  15. Mk.III R9125 At Hendon, pics thanks to Mark Mills. A full history of this aircraft can be found here. Painted in the markings of LX-L R9125 of No. 225 Squadron RAF
  16. Imperial War Museum at Duxford, Lysander MK.III III marked as MA-J V9673, pics thanks to Mark Mills.
  17. Westland Lysander Mk III. It is painted in the all black colour scheme of the clandestine SOE aircraft of 1942 and is marked as V9367 MA-B (of No. 161 Squadron RAF) the aircraft flown by Pilot Officer Peter Vaughan-Fowler, DSO, DFC and bar, AFC. Pics by Graham James at Old Warden
  18. I have finished my group builds in the P-38 and Sci-Fi, albeit about a week after each was due. (Planning and execution is everything!) I have decided to do something different. I have seen many fine people with far better building skills than I tackle modifications of kits and turn out breath taking models. I am still trying to just become adequate at making a kit look like a decent model out of the box. But, I figure if I ever want to expand my horizons, I need to get outside of my comfort zone and do something different. So, here is my hair-brained scheme. I have the 1/48 Hawk Lysand
  19. As the BoB GB is now less than two weeks away I have decided to squeeze in a quick OOB build of the Matchbox Westland Lysander MkII as re-released by Revell as a 'Classic Kit' in 2008: It contains the Matchbox kit (though not moulded in two shades of brown as per the original) and the marking options are the same. The lack of 'bumps' on the cowling indicates this kit represents a Mk.II but the second option R9125 LXoL of 225 Squadron was a Mk.III. This doesn't affect me as I will be building L4805 UGoB of 16 Squadron operating in France in May 1940 which was indeed a Mk.II. The parts look
