Westland Lysander

Post by David Cowley » Wed Jan 08, 2014 2:38 pm

Hi all
Well I have been a little busy, doing other jobs (on modelling see my other topics) I have now reached the covering stage with the Lysander, so just a few pics showing the frame fully assembled and all the radio equipment fitted and tested. so the next stage is striping it down again and covering, painting etc..

At this stage I thought that I should weigh the plane and it weighs 5.85 lb, so I have started to sand a bit more off here there etc. to try and get the finished model to below 6.0lb. never mind I will keep you all posted.

Looking really good Dave. Hope mine turns out half as well when I get started on it.

Hi everyone
Just a few photo's showing the Lysander now covered with the engine fitted and the radio equipment installed,
All that now remains, is to add the various insignia etc. the large fuel tank and ladder, but I may run the engine and get it sound tested first, I may also
maiden fly it first before finishing off.

Looks really good - I am going to have to work hard to match that when I build mine!

What are you using for the markings? Cut vinyl? Computer printed decal paper? Paint?

Hi Colin
Both, laser water slide decal for the small ones (not shown on this image) and the large ones I have cut from Solartrim, but I had to make stencils which I can let you have when you do yours.
I found that on the big letters the laser colour was not dense enough.
