Thanks George I guess the Canadian version (stripes all over) didn't have to sit on a runway with He111s and Bf109s buzzing overhead! - anyway I like the juxtaposition of the schemes - a bit warry and a bit weird - does it for me!

I believe that even RAF target tugs based here in the UK also had yellow and black striped undersides. Lovely job so far, Pat, I have to say though, I wish I lived around the corner from you and could relieve you of one or two of your foresaken projects, your old Lizzy was coming along as nicely as this one is!

Pete - yes the RAF had the stripy underside - that's what I'm doing as in post #1
The old Lizzie is here for the taking Pete

I fact, if anyone local wanted it, I have the fuselage and a spare set of plans - first in, first served! (I'm not posting it )

Heh Pat, did you ever check out the plans by Dan Wilson for his 95" Lysander?

Jeez....., you people!! If you keep coming up with all these fascinating, mesmerizing build threads, how am I ever going to get any of my own multiple projects finished?

Doug - the formula for seeming to produce a stream of modelling projects was for me:

Give up the well-paid day job for poorly-paid retirement
Pay off the mortgage and buy a smaller, less maintenance property
Have a totally supportive partner who likes to have you home building...
Give up ideas of long holidays O/S, fast cars and/or faster women
Become passionate/obsessive/anal (all similar) about aviation and models
Have direct access between home and workshop...
Be prepared to have a go at anything that takes your fancy..and possibly fail
Be prepared to move projects that are ceasing to inspire me into a dark corner.
Make sure it is always fun.

Well said Pat... I haven't gotten all the way to the retirement part yet but it's getting closer. If I down sized, I'd have no room to build models. Definitely models in dark corners, or boxes as it may be. Spare bedroom should suffice for direct access. The additcition to models happened when I was about 4, even got a picture to prove it.

George - my early addiction was with boats - we lived near a busy seaport and I spent much of my spare time crawling over all sorts of vessels - from fishing boats to naval cruisers, USS Staten Island and small submarines....then wanted to build models of them all like the big boys did I never lost interest in models except for a brief spell when courting, career and cars (not nec. in that order) prevailed .

Enough old-timer rambling..here are some pics roughly up to where i am now. The tail end is a small nightmare - a real juggling act trying to get two separate elevators, tailwheel steering and rudder horn into a small gap created by making the tail 'cone' from one piece of folded-around-a-round-object 3mm soft balsa sheet. I havent done any more than the elevators yet but making the back end of it removable might have been easier. Maybe it can still be done.....hmmmm

Pat (having a nap and thinking about it)

Pat, nice work. Hatch looks fantastic.

I detoured through a model ship phase too, even finished one. I still have most of the bits-n-peices around here still and a couple of Harold Hahn museum quality plans too.

Hi all,

Model is looking great Pat - only way to build a Lysander is to build it BIG. I'm an ex-ship modeller too and if you can double-plank a hull then there's not much else to fear from balsa

Will you be butt-gluing the wings onto the acetate canopy with balsa cement, like the old Keil Kraft rubber-powered kit then...no, probably best not! I have happy memories of that kit; fly once, repair all afternoon then repeat until you got sick and binned it.

I loook forward to seeing yours floating gracefully round the field.

Regards
Harry

Hi Harry - I definitely remember the old KK Lizzie - mine never flew but I loved its quirkiness! I think, as a kid, I built most of the KK, Frog and Veron kits but few of them did anything but glide! Great fun though

Here's a little light reading for those following along

Might be a little late but good reference material.

Superb details...that's just added another 2 years to Pat's build, I think

I never knew they could carry bombs on those little u/cstub wings. Add those to a model and you'd HAVE to land it 100% perfectly each time.

Regards
Harry

A buddy in our club built a Lysander, from what might be the same plans. He powers his with a 4-stroke, but we can't hold that against him. Here it is at our club scale meet last summer:
