"Excellent tool and die work by the Hawk Company"
jimwoodward1943 (Broken Arrow, OK)
Was surprised by the comparative size of the Lysander to the Spitfire and the Hurricane. All parts fit very well and was a quick build.

"good value; as odd the the original"
Back in the 1990's,(when I could afford the and had space,I was building 1/32 scale kits I got a hold of a revel Lysander of this scale. It was a great kit; the detail in the complexity of the wing root was terrific. Now building 1/48 scale, I found this Hawk kit; I never heard of them in 60 years, but knowing Lindberg (ugh) and being priced right, I gave it a try. it's not a bad kit at all; most everything fit together quite well, and very little flash. it was good as the old Monogram kits. While I missed the complexity of the wing root detail, I found the use of the clear part roof of the model as a structural element quite clever in its conception. If it were not for the difficulty in gluing the wing assembly to the fuselage I would rate this kit a good one for beginners. It is a great value and a must for WWII aircraft collector/builders.

The Lysander was by far a true war horse that carried men supplies during World War Two. This kit is the rendition that fills a large gap in history and is a very easily built kit. I started out by thoroughly reading the exploded drawing instruction sheet which was typical for the era of the kit's age. I decided to build sub-assemblies to ease painting the parts later and piecing them together with better results. That is a good practice with this kit. I had no fit issues and there was little flash of leftover plastic which was nice. As old as the plastic seemed it doesn't take well to CA or Super Glue and after trying a few parts using HobbyLinc brand CA I was successful by clamping parts together such as the wing halves, and fuselage but beyond those parts there were no more gluing issues. I found that painting the entire model with a light greenish-grey primer of acrylic paint was the best way to go and through research found photos of actual aircraft had been restored showing a light green for the underside of the wings, so I painted them accordingly. I painted the fuselage in a similar paint pattern as the box cover shows and added different decals as the markings followed an actual aircraft pattern. This would make a good beginner kit with minimal supervision and loaded with fun parts to detail if one chooses. I highly recommend this kit to anyone with a little experience with aircraft models.

A nice model for me to practice on. Easy to assemble. Canopy gave me some problems with fitting together. All in all, a nice build. Painted it a satin black with a flat green accent. Pictures to follow in the future. Lindberg has improved since I was younger.
