  6. Hello Moa, Never knew that this model was active in South America. Excellent construction. Thanks for sharing. Regards, Orion.
  7. Hello Goon, This is modeling with history in mind. It makes my day, that this specific helicopter is constructed on this scale. The model, despites it's dull color, looks great in every aspect. The flight crew LT.CDR. Ian Stanley RN, LT. Chris Perry RN and CPO RN Fitz Fitzgerald, showed no fear under the most dangerous conditions. Taking in account, that this type of helicopter was already outdated. "Operation Paraquat" had a disastrous start. In the end it was nipped in the but by the Fleet Air Arm crew from this Wessex HAS3, that was operated to the ultimate maximum of it's flight envelope To my opinion, all the credit for this operation goes to the crew of "Humphrey" They kept their heads cool and showed extreme craftmanship under the most extreme weather conditions. I was also very pleased to read, that "Humphry" will be restored to its old glory. Book: Operation Paraquat by Roger Perkins. Published 1986 / ISBN 0 948251 13 1. Regards, Orion.
