Westland Lysander

Aero Modeller's Westland Lysander

The Westland Lysander was a unique 'special mission' British aircraft that served well during WW2 in a variety of roles. Originally intended
for artillery spotting and message dropping, Lysanders were used for numerous clandestine nighttime missions in occupied Europe, some
of these missions including agent insertion and retrievals, and resupply of Resistance fighters. Almost 1800 Lysanders were produced and one
replica is on display at the National Air & Space Museum, Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia. The model presented here is a 1:12th scale 50"
free flight model, rubber powered, designed by Howard Boys. The plane has numerous complex scale features including a unique planform
strut-braced wing, large fixed wheel spats, a large greenhouse for visibility, and a permanently installed ladder for rapid egress and ingress
of personnel! Much thanks to "bjm" and "dfritzke" for proving the plans for this most unique wartime "special" aircraft with a distinguished
worldwide record!
