Hi Peter, Lots of people like the Lysander, and there have been a lot of models and articles, even going back to the early WWII years.

I have several of these, and IMO the best is in Aeromodeller, December 1967.

If no-one comes up with anything better, I'll try to scan it (not easy as it's in a bound volume).

During World War 2 my parents moved from Waddon near Croydon Airport to avoid being bombed. They moved to a road in Thornton Heath not realising that there was an aircraft factory at the top of the road called Redwings where they repaired 1,500 Lysanders up to the end of the war. Only one V1 bomb landed near the factory and demolished some large houses nearby killing two elderly women.

In the 1930's for a brief period Redwings owned Gatwick Airport where they taught their apprentices to fly in a biplane called the Robinson Redwing.
