renovating a Lysander ...

A nice Ebay buy for  £3.99, a poor distressed Airfix Lysander - wings not straight,  wheels on back to front, missing propeller blade and an interesting paint scheme. A bit of careful wiggling and use of a craft knife got the cockpit and wing off plus the wheel assemblies...
wheels back on, gaps filled, new propeller blade made using wire & green stuff, wing re-assembled and cockpit & crew painted...
the wing and struts were carefully stuck back on and then it was painted, I had to paint round the transfers which was bit tricky, and touched them in as needed.
