Fantastic job on the fuselage frame and the wing slats and flaps.

1/32 Scale, and the detail just gets more, and more, and more and it is endless.
Well you have me hooked Chris, as I reckon this will be a major work of art when (IF) you finish mate

I don't know when, I don't know when Choppa !!!!
But he will finish it for sure LOL
31. January 2015 at 01:48:00
I hope I can finish it, I've taken a pretty big bite of something here.

There is nothing better than attention to detail, as it involves all your senses, and I am sure there are many links to your research data and print outs of photos, well, that's what I do, as I like to get it right, and there is nothing better than telling a "Rivet Counter" where to go when you have all the facts to present.
And, did you know that the Lysander Mk I/III had the quietest engine of all the radials and that is why they were preferred for all the 'behind the enemy lines' jobs.
31. January 2015 at 02:29:13
Amazing job on the 229 by the way, an amazing build!
The more I find out about the Lysander the more I try to do the kit justice, nothing like revamping an old kit with modern tools and knowhow...walkaround books and the internet be thanked (also a little more experience now) Just having fun with the kit and not worrying about how long it takes.
31. January 2015 at 02:43:55
What a wonderful attitude you have to our hobby Chris, and as I said before, it is surly going to be a work of art. Thanks for your pat on my back too mate, 'Just a bit of fun' LOL.

How exciting it is to come back to a build and leaf through the pics you have posted of the progress your making Chris. You certainly are leaving no stone unturned here. Judging by the work that has happened so far, this will be one fantastic model mate. Just wonderful to follow.
7. February 2015 at 02:50:28
Thanks, I appreciate the encouragement, I have so far been treating each little piece as it's own project, not worrying about the kit as a whole right now...I'll worry about that when I've built myself into a corner somewhere farther into the project
7. February 2015 at 23:46:26
LOL, Little kits within kits is just a delightful way to do a build, and It is so much more enjoyable to approach it that way. And before you know it, there are all these little "sub assemblies" all over the place, just waiting to shine.

Exellent job so far Chris, I have this one in my collection and wanted to sell him but now I see what you did to yours I wanted to start this from me as well soon

I thought I did a lot to my models !!!! but now I feel total inadequate Chris. I am in absolute awe. The instrument wiring has got my jaw on the ground mate. Will you take me on as you apprentice please. ??
16. February 2015 at 21:11:55
The standard around here is so high I've had to step up my game to keep up with you guys
16. February 2015 at 22:15:50
Your the one who has raised the bar mate. Geez !!!
16. February 2015 at 22:31:32
With my bad back I don't think it was I who raised that bar. Probably that guy adding all the details to Zoukei-Mura kits...
16. February 2015 at 23:25:49
LOL. Touché. Chris, you are too kind and further more, the detail in the ZM kits is already there mate, and as to your brilliance, you are dealing with a kit that has got not the best track record for the best of detail and that's why I am so impressed with your work. Dare I say, 'A silk purse from a sows ear' ? !!!
In the words of the Imortal Paul Hogan (before he became 'Crocodile Dundee) playing the part of the magician gypsy 'Loueegie', Keep-a-dancin' Maria.
BTW, My son is currently in sunny Winnipeg where it's currently, -40 screaming blue murder. LOL.
17. February 2015 at 00:45:12
Ya, your right the model is definitely in need of work to bring up the detail level.
Cold in Winnipeg too hey. We just got through a fairly nasty cold spell then 16cm of snow and blowing snow overnight. I've seen colder winters than this one for sure but it doesn't make it any easier to put up with. Like a lot of people say, Canada has about 10 months of winter and a couple months of poor skating.... Another one is Saskatchewan (where I call home) is so flat you can sit and watch your dog run away for 3 days, if you stand up, 4 days.
17. February 2015 at 01:46:17
That is the funniest thing I have ever heard/read. LOL
Yeah, my son is used to 40c here and a splash in a pool, but apparently he met a young lady while he was in the UK and his nuts got in the way and he is NOT happy with his decision to go. Oh well. !
Saskatchewan. ! Is that where the 'Saskwatch' lives. ?
Here he is called a 'Yowie'. Rarely seen but it lives.
17. February 2015 at 02:30:08
Well Kerry take heart your son is safe, at least here in Canada there are no spiders that can kill a man in ten seconds... Just by looking at him...
17. February 2015 at 03:48:53
17. February 2015 at 06:33:11
It's almost as worse here with a temperature span from 36C at the most during the summer to -42C during the winter...

I'm removing the windows from their framework right now with the intent of installing clear acetate sheet. The kit's clear parts are foggy and really thick. I hope it works

Good Morning, Chris You are at the top of your game with this one. Your passion for detail and taking it to the max limit is beyond. Can't wait until I catch it on the table at SMAS. Catch Ya, Logan

How could I miss till now? Amazing scrach building skills. I am impressed what you did with the windows.
28. February 2015 at 21:39:57
I believe there may be a light near the end of the project now...maybe
28. February 2015 at 23:23:28
This whole project is just stunning. Very impressive and very inspiring.
14. March 2015 at 21:02:12
Congrats Chris. This is the best Lizzie from this kit I've seen so far!
14. March 2015 at 21:23:22
14. March 2015 at 21:46:23
Isn't she luvly !!!What a build Chris, and I hope she is headed for the next big comp mate as there is every chance there will be a HUGE trophy standing beside it the next time we see it.
15. March 2015 at 01:16:14
Hi Kerry, I don't put my models in contests anymore, there's a show I display at once a year in Calgary Alberta but, it's just a group of builders getting together and offering awards that we each sponsor...after that, we go for beer!
Thanks for the positive comment!
15. March 2015 at 01:43:52
Labatts ? Yum.
No need for a fridge this time of the year for you guys.
My son just spent a month over there and froze. LOL

Thanks for your kind words mates!
This one was well off my usual path but, an interesting and fun challenge..I began cutting into a much newer Trumpeter Luftwaffe model this morning that has much more detail, more parts and oddly, much more flash than that old Matchbox kit.
Kerry the winters here can be (usually are) brutal, I've seen 54 of them now and I'm ready to try something warmer, next time your son is here see if he can smuggle me out.
