The Hasegawa A6 Intruder from a tool dating back to 1968. Don't know how old this boxing was but there was very little flash, no fit issues and the decals were fine, if a little reluctant to come away from the backing paper. OOB apart from the cockpit that I scratch built and the compressor facings which are photos lifted from the internet, printed and glued down the intakes. The kit cockpit! My scratch build. The paper engines. Some shipmates that are also ancient Hasegawas.
I thought I'd do at least one more yellow chopper for the time being, to display with the Wessex. The Whirlwind looks a bit simpler to build, though will probably end up needing lots of scratch building and mods to make it represent an RAF one. If I remember correctly I think I bought this kit from a stand at the Shuttleworth airshow in 2018. It looks basic! This is what I'm attempting to create. Any Whirlwind experts out there who can give some advice? It doesn't look too different to me. The door is moulded shut so no scratchbuilt cabin interior this time. I'll use some of the left over Wessex decals for the 'Rescue' titles, etc. Not my photo, I'm not that old! Mods remove it if it breaks copyright, it was just a random Google image search, no credits.
