    Hi guys

    Many thanks for your comments. Yes, we will do both (The rear fuselage turret and the turget tug scheme).

    The first batch is finished. I am really happy with the result . My father has dedicated a lot of time in order to improve the original kit.

    Here are the photos

    1) Westland Lysander Mk I L4729 – 16 Sqn - Old Sarum – May 1938

    3) Westland Lysander Mk III V9576 AR/N – 309 Sqn (Polish) – Ipswich - December 6 1941 – Scorch exercise.

    The anti invasion exercise was "SCORCH" held from 14 hs on Saturday, December 6 to sunset on Sunday, December 7,1941
    309 (Polish) Squadron was involved in Exercise Scorch.
    There is a photograph of Lysander V9576 AR*N which has a black letter N under the starboard wing. There is also a photograph of the aircraft from the other side and the port wing could be black underneath.
