    Westland Lysander Mk III - 1:36 scale.

    The Lysander, affectionately called the "Lizzie", was a British army co-operation and liaison aircraft immediately before & just after World War 2. After becoming obsolete in the army's co-operation role, the aircraft's exceptional short-field performance enabled clandestine missions using small, unprepared airstrips behind enemy lines to place or recover agents, particularly in unoccupied France. Like other British army air co-operation aircraft it was given the name of a mythical or legendary leader, in this case the Spartan general Lysander. Note the fixed 'Agent's Ladder' used for rapid entry and exit. A 1:72 version is available - contact Bob.
