Limp Lysander - part 4

Limp no more, the Lysander is ready to take to the sky!
I used the markings from the kit.  I really wanted to finish it as a machine of 613 Squadron as this unit was based for a time at RAF Firbeck - a station only active between 1940 and 1945 - which is located only a few miles away.  Sadly the decal box was unable to rise to the occasion, so perhaps 613 Sqn will have to wait until a 1/144 Lysander is available.  No, I'm not holding my breath either.

Well done Tim! On to the Me-109! Or was that the Fw-190...?

Just the ticket for use at Calais in 1940!

I bid on one of these and a Anson last night, but they proved to rich for my liking. Wonderful recovery.

They must have been pricey if you let them go!
