The Hawker Cygnet was a British ultralight biplane aircraft of the 1920's.

The aircraft were of wood-and-fabric construction, the fuselage being four longerons-strutted in the fashion of a Warren girder. The wing had two box spars with Warren truss ribs. Initially the two aircraft were powered, one by an Anzani, and the other by an ABC Scorpion (both opposed twin-cylinder engines).

In 1926 the engines in both Cygnets were changed to the Bristol Cherub III, another twin-cylinder engine. The airframe weighed a remarkably low 270 lb, and its weight when empty was only 373 lb.

Unassembled plastic model kit in 1/72 scale of a Hawker Cygnet ultralight competition biplane aircraft built by Hawker for a 1924 competition organized by the Royal Aero Club.

This kit from Avis is a completely new mold!
