    Good one Don. I've got the old Italeri kit (courtesy of Glenn) which will also be done as a SD aircraft, in a small diorama - some day!
    Let me know if you want some detail shots of the exterior, as I took some of the Shuttleworth Collection's aircraft, although it's in the earlier overall black scheme.
    Meanwhile, here's a couple of pics of the Duxford example.

    I spit a little paint at the interior today after working on the Su-24. Terry I can use all the photos you have. I have read about the exploits of those who flew the Lysander and have always like it. I just don't have very much information on the aircraft itself.

    George, YOUR THE BOMB! Figured I could not go wrong with pea green for the interior.

    I'll sort and post the pics here over the weekend sometime Don.
    I have two detailed books on the Lysander, but the files are too big to send via e-mail. If you can wait, send me a PM with a mailing address, and I'll put them onto a CD for you. Also, a good reference for background is 'We Landed By Moonlight', by Hugh Verity, who flew S.D. Lysanders from Tempsford, via Tangmere, the latter being much closer to the south coast of England.
    The rear cockpit was modified slightly to accommodate the 'Joes' ferried to and from Europe on SOE missions.
    The pic I posted of the Duxford example is a re-creation of his aircraft, with the 'Jiminy Cricket' cartoon figure on the fuselage, below the cockpit.

    Terry, when I want to send a file that is too big for an email, I use Google Drive. I sent a 128MB file that way. It takes quite a while to download and send but you don't have to worry about the CD and postage.
