Eduard 1/48th Westland Lysander


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Here's my latest creation, Eduard's boxing of the Westland Lysander, in the colours of a 26 squadron machine based at Gatwick 1940/41.

A very nice kit made even better with the usual Eduard photo-etch, resin and paint mask goodies thrown in.

The only problems I encountered were the side windows, which didn't seem to follow the contours of the fuselage, so I had to cut them into sections to make them conform. 

Painted with MRP and Alclad paints, weathered with oils and sealed with Alclad matt cote.

 

Thanks for looking, gazza l

Wonderful build. The paint work is superb! I didn't realize the Lysander could carry weapons as shown on your model. Learned something!

Fantastic job! Excellent paintwork, how did you mask for the wavy line on the fuselage?  I am building this at the moment but it is seriously testing the limits of my current ability. I am finding the glass work problematic too, cutting sounds like a great solution.

 

Cheers

Thanks Kev.

The wavy edges were done using thin blutack sausages. For the canopy side windows I used a razor saw and partially cut threw in three places from the inside. I could then bend them (gently) to suit the fuselage halves.
