My first completions of the year - the RS Models 1/72 Avro Rota in Swiss civil markings - the fuselage is a touch over 4 ins long, by the way - and a pair of S&M Models 1/72 Bristol Sycamore, RAF and German Navy versions. These are magazine reviews, so just the single photos and no words....
One year and 2 days from my first WIP post, I can finally call this one done! Bristol Sycamore HR.51 in Royal Australian Navy guise, circa mid-1950's. This was never meant to be a long build, but as it progressed I kept seeing things I just needed to tidy up. The rotor fold, blade cradle, winch, steps, cockpit interior, tail rotor, port side under carraige and front starboard door are all scratch built. And although not 100% accurate and authentic, it looks pretty much like a Sycamore to me. Maybe one day I'll be tempted by the CMR resin kit, although there's lots more to build yet in my stas
Walking past my stash the other day, this little helicopter caught my eye - the Glencoe version of the Bristol Sycamore. It's touted as 1/72 scale, but I've read in online reviews that it is closer to 1/65. The moulding is pretty dated with a prominence of rivets, some pretty thick castings and a very rudimentary interior. My aim is to build a RAN HR.51, most likely this guy, in overall silver: http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/albums/Sycamore-XN448/AMOF_XN448.jpg
