Lysander by Eduard ED11138

So I've been looking at these a little in part bc of a book a just read on the French Resistance and their working the British during world war II. Anyone have any feedback on the new Eduard one by chance?  Or other manufacturers?  

 

Keep on building!

This is essentially the same kit that I recently completed.  It is a decent kit with a good number of extras included - PE and resin parts.

The post I created on my Lysander build:  http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/2/t/185843.aspx

Tks Aggie.  Ever see any by other manufacturers?  Looks good but sounds like it was a little bit of a battle.

There is a 1/32 kit by Matchbox which can be fun.  Any Lysander will be harder than the average model because of all the structure at the top of the canopy, it's just pretty complicated.  Same row to hoe as putting together most P-38 kits, it's hard to engineer it to be foolproof.

Gavia and Eduard are the same kit in 1/48.  Hawk did one in 1/48 way back when and it has been released more recently by Italeri but being a 60's kit it is not as good as the Gavia kit but may be easier to put together just because it has fewer parts, just a guess.  There are several kits in 1/72 as well.

To tag on to what John says, Revell also has a 1/32 edition of the Lysander.  I built it as a kid many years ago, so I'll surmise it wasn't a difficult build.

Undoubtedly the Matchbox kit with a Revell label, Stephen.  I think the kit has real possibilities.
