    Airfix 1/72 Westland Lysander (Special Duties) Night Missions
    TBH not got used to Airfix castings yet. This first appeared in 1972. They go to great length in detail on some bits (Canopy is in 5 parts) and yet other bits are over simplified they look crude.
    Had problems painting the heat shield by masking, so gave up and did it freehand. BTW notice how the rear gunner isn’t helping the agent get aboard :D

    Great stuff! I remember the original Airfix kit, the second ever model I built. It had a 'solid' cockpit, with the 'crew' moulded as part of each fuselage side! Happy memories - I can still smell the old Humbrol paint !!
