    We are in the process of building a full scale Lysander for museum display. Can anyone help with a source for maintenance manuals or drawings. We already have pilots notes and most books, but are really short on detailed technical information. Thanks.:)

    I would recommend getting in touch with the RAF Museum. They do charge a pretty hefty fee for a copy though.

    I think we have just about every book published on the Lysander - some have extracts from the maintenance manuals, but really not enough to work with. There are a few aftermarket drawings on Ebay, but no originals.
    If we cant find anything from private collectors then we will go to the RAF Museum or Key .

    Westland Lysander Mk I, II or III.

    Publications are AP1582 B and C.

    Thanks.
