  1. The yellow zinc chromate was affectionately known as "Yak poo-poo" if i remember rightly. I still have a tin of it somewhere! (Rude word police won't let me use the actual word but you know what I mean wink wink)
  2. looking great! Used to get buzzed by these all the time at Leconfield. I was thinking about doing one to hang above my Leconfield diorama to bring back all those memories.
  3. I echo the comments from other modellers on here. The final result is fabulous. I hope you feel it was worth all the effort and you can be very proud of what you have achieved.
  4. Fabulous details. Coming along really nicely. I find Tamiya transparent paints in red and green work great for nav lights. I have also used the orange on clear flashing LEDs for vehicle beacons.
  5. @hendie Is one the early 200ft Winch and the other the later 300ft?
  6. Added the forward refuelling point in the correct place having already filled in the original incorrectly positioned ones
  7. Tail rotor is also finished Main rotor coming along nicely too Another view of the tail nav light As I am going to have working nav lights and a Houchin attached, I decided I would put a pilot in the cockpit. I have 4 from my Airfix Sea King kits but I realised that they would not fit without modification as there was no room for a cyclic between his legs. Taking a knife to the pilot I removed his right leg (not the first time I have considered removing an appendage from a member of aircrew but that's another story!) A bit of filing and the leg was repositioned and glued back on. Left hand seat to do next but no crew going in this. I am thinking about folding the seat up but the jury is still out on that. Made a ladder for the bowser as well
  8. Made a bit of progress on the Wessex (in between decorating, tidying my shed, and making ground equipment and fuel bowsers) Rotorcraft tailcone plug hollowed out and attached and the fibre-optic for the tail nav light installed. This will be cut down after painting but I don't think I will be able to get an accurate 140 degree light spread it may be nearer to 180. Houchin and towbar are eagerly awaiting a completed Wessex though!
  9. I bought mine specifically to chop the tail off my Wessex to fit the Rotorcraft plug. It has been used for many more things since.
  10. @CedB I too have the same one bought from the Bay of E. Here is the link https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Handy-Craft-Mini-DIY-Tools-Hobby-Razor-Saw-Kit-Multifunction-Model-Sale-Hot/202512027152?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  11. I know it isn't an HC2 but good to see Navy Wessex XT761 has taken to the air again today
  12. Squirty bottle with soapy water and a roll of Kimwipe were never far away from Walter's windows, particularly after a wash and PX which was carried out every week!
