    I go crazy if I don't have 5 things going on at once.
    I vote for the green/ grey/ black! Those Lysanders look so cool that way.

    Nice one Karl and I'd go the special ops as well, that is what they were better known for.

    Yep, the SOE scheme is the one! Got mine lined up for a future build in a diorama, based on an article in a magazine - when I eventually get around to fitting it into the build schedule!

    Good one Karl.
    Note that the rungs of the ladder were painted white on the top edges, so that they could easily be seen by 'Joes' boarding at night. Also, to avoid the build up of loose earth around the wheels, some aircraft had the covers removed from the spats - a tricky one for the way the kit is made possibly.
    Some also had the shaped, internal fuel/oil tanks behind the pilot, but references in those two books you have should clarify this.

    Yeah, but the spats look so cool!

    Ah, the spats were left in place Paul, just the semi-circular covers on the outboard side, over the top half of the wheels, were sometimes removed, exposing the wheels and the landing gear yoke.
