    A Junglie and a Grey Whale

    Making very slow progress. With christmas over with, have been working on the cabin.... Removing the ejection pin marks on the inside of the fuselage. Progress on the HAR3 cabin and cockpit. the cabin seats are now ready to go in, so these should goes in this evening. The HC4 cabin is painted, but need to add all the seat belts from the etch set before I add the seats.

    A Junglie and a Grey Whale

    While trying to finish off the beaufighter, have made some progress tonight on adding the etch to HC4 and have started the HAR3, which will not have any etch added to the cabin. The airfix insturctions call for the cockpit to be grey, where as this is true for the cabin, but I think the cockpit floor should be black?

    I hope I can meet your exceptions Col. The one area of the Airfix Sea King that is poor is the engine air intake filter, so I am hoping I can make a good job of using the etch to improve the filter. Quite agree can never have too many rotors. Yes the Puma is XW202, from when it was 1563 Flt in Belize. Hoping that one day Airfix will issue a new tool Puma (along with a Wessex HC2). Back when I was teenage in the 80's I did an Airfix Sea King as a 78 Sqn using the Modeldecal sets, so this is a bit of a trip down memory lane - it must of been the first time I used an aftermarket decal sheet.
  8. So having completed a couple of group builds, I thought that I would try a WIP.....So for my first try at a WIP I have decide to have ago at a couple of Sea Kings. I have two of the new tool Airfix Sea Kings in the stash. I will build the HAR.3 as a 78 Squadron from the mid to late eighties. I have a few decal sheets to help out here. I plan to add the lifting frame that appears on a number of the 78 Sqn machines. I have the Airwaves HC.4 conversion set - planned for a another build using the old Airfix Sea King - there is a challenge, so I will be using the lifting frame from that set as a template. For the HC4, I will be using the kit decals, but during the Eduard E-day sale, I pick up the big ed set cheaply, so I have some etch to add. The second set of masks is for the HAR3 and were not part of age big ed set. Also plan to use the lift strops (if the is the correct term) from an Airwaves etch set: Anyway last night made a start - a couple of the etch parts added to the Junglie.

    So update ob progress in the last week. Pictures rot follow, currently working away for a few days this week. Nose undercarriage on and nosecone fitted - good news so far is that I do not have a tail sitter, so I did not need to add any more weight in the nosecone. I have a first coat of paint on using on. Using Xtracolo.r X111 FS14087 Olive Drab for base colour of RAL 7013 and for the lighter green, RAL 6020, I am planing to use X114 FS14092 Medium Green.

    Airfix: The Golden Years Gallery

    1/72 Dassult-Breguet / Dornier Alpha Jet Finished as a Portuguese Air Force Alpha Jet A, of Esquadra 301 'Jaguars'. Decals from Printscale I added the flare/chaff disperser under the rear fuselage, replaced the jet pipes with metal tub and rebuilt the gun pod.
  13. And Finished. Thanks for following James
  14. So a scheme like this would not look right with out some weapons under the wings. Tanks are from the kit and the rocket pods (LAU-51?) from the Meng G91. on with the last few bits.
