The Westland Lysander
By Matt Bittner
Author: Richard A. Franks
Publisher: Valiant Wings Publishing
ISBN #: 978-1-912932-03-0
Number nine in their Airframe Detail series of books from Valiant Wings Publishing is on the Westland Lysander. This book on the "Lizzie" can be considered the "go-to" book for the type. Not only are there period detail photos, but there are also plenty of color photos of the Lysanders still in existence. The book is broken out thusly:
- Technical Description
- Camouflage & Markings
- Little Lizzie: Dora Wings Mk.III (SD) in 1/72 by Libor Jekl
There are also three appendices:
- Lysander Kits
- Lysander Accessoriy, Decals and Masks
- Lysander Squadrons
All-in-all more than enough for building any Lysander model and plenty to satisfy anyone curious about the history of the type. The Dora Wings 1/72 Mk.III (SA) build by Libor Jekl is again a superlative build and provides plenty when wanting to build this particular model.
Many thanks goes to Valiant Wings Publishing for providing the book to review.
