  1. Wessex HU.5 with aftermarket decals and spares box upgrades

    After a bit of priming I’ve thrown some green paint in its general direction I need to get generic white serials to do the decals but am wondering if this wouldn’t be lifted a bit by having some marines spilling out of the doorway e.g. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CALL7267

    Deadline schmeadline - it’s a fine looking model
  4. Great effort on getting such a finessed finish. Well done!
  5. Pacific Pair - 1/72 Corsairs

    Exceptional work
  6. Wessex HU.5 with aftermarket decals and spares box upgrades

    I’ve being doing bits of this on and off - as of today we have something that looks helicopter(ish) and almost ready for some priming, sanding and filler That modded nose from the front Rotors, exhaust and tailplane just temporarily sitting in position while I get an idea of how it’ll look

    Looks like Ant has you sorted out for most of the Wessex plane guard decals - if you need particular unit markings or anything else just send me a message That helicopter crew is excellent - I’ve used one set in a Sea King build before and they look terrific positioned in a doorway

    Thanks @Giorgio N - I’ll do the single seater and try to cobble something approaching a coherent set of markings. Really appreciate the reference material

    A brutalist masterpiece

    The sheet I have is model decal no.96 - some discussion on what is on there and pictures in this thread
  11. Westland Sea King HU5

    This is a terrific thread - really informative from everyone who has chipped in. Bookmarked to refer back to for at least two of my pending builds

    Neeps! If you ask someone for nips there’s no telling how the evening will unfold (referencing as far back as page 1.) ... meanwhile on modelling. I’m part way into making the Matchbox Wessex and have a spare 1/72 nose that’d work for that plane guard and a big ol’ model decal sheet covering Wessexes which you’re welcome to have bits and pieces of as necessary

    Evening all - finally thinking of making a start to mine. Does anyone happen to have a colour guide or decal scheme to go with the HobbyBoss/Hasegawa decal sheet shown here (with the blue background) they could scan and message me a copy of?

    Looks very effective - well done!
