What do you get when a Lancaster has its way with a Lysander? The Wonderful Wacky Wendover!


Recommended Posts

Yes, this is what happens when a Lancaster and a Lysander decide to have kids.... The Westland Wendover.

This is at its heart a Hawk 1/48 Lysander mated with an aftermarket resin conversion. Other additions, Eduard Lysander P/E set, Quickboost Exhaust, and and various 3D printed parts I created for extra detail, sometimes multiple times:wall: But overall it was a cool learning experience. The WIP can be found here:

Seen a lot of photos of this bird it makes you think if they were inhaling fumes that made them see strange things at the time of conception 🤣 .It looks like an aircraft from that famous cartoon series with Dick Dastardly and Mutley .But you have to be congratulated on your hard work looks just like the photographs well done 👏

A highly improbable-looking plane and yet I know it existed (from an article or two I have seen before).

Excellent job on one very oddball of an aircraft!

Excellent work on an aircraft so ugly I can’t make up my mind if it’s come full circle back to attractive.  On reflection - no it hasn’t :D (but the work is still lovely)

Must have fallen from the ugly tree & hit every branch on the way down.

 

Great work there, I've seen pictures of the real thing but never a model. Full marks for rarity value.

 

As has been said, you've got to wonder what the designers were on, or maybe they designed it for a bet!

Well, necessity is the mother of invention and desperation was possibly the father in this case.

I think they lost the bet.

I think in their case it was more of "Invention is a mother.... when it's a necessity"
