Finnish Lizzie.

Recommended Posts

A Westland Lysander from Finnish Air Force, which I am a fan of.

1/48 Gavia kit, built several years ago with some photoetched parts, from Eduard if I am not mistaken.

I thought that this plane was small, actually it is huge. It dwarfs a Spitfire if you put them close to each other...

Probably the dihedral is too strong.

Claudius that is absolutely stunning, as usual.

It's a bit of a change from the Med, but once again you have found a subject which is close to my heart and you have completed a masterpiece in it.

The painting and weathering is absolutely spot-on, simply perfect, and very inspiring.

Very well done sir.

Very nice to see.

I can't comment on the dihedral but it certainly looks great! I can remember when first seeing a Lizzie at Duxford what a large machine it is. Thanks for showing.

Oh very nice work, looks great, I have the Eduard one in the stash to build one day, I also can't comment on the dihedral, although I remember seeing a build article in one of the magazines which state the struts need to be brought inward a touch at the top.

Great work

All the best
Chris

That is a very impressive Lysander. It makes me want to break out my stash of Warlord comics. Wasn't there a series in that comic featuring a Lizzie?

Very nice work! - I have a kind of a soft spot on this particular painting scheme - I made the same machine in 1/72, from Matchbox kit when I was 17-years old, so 37 years ago... It is still on my shelf :)

Cheers

Excellent build. This reminds me of a Lysander alarm clock I saw years ago in some shop but I didn't buy it then and haven't seen one since. :weep:
