  1. Yes another Lynx, this time a HAS.3S (I think its an S, buts is a HAS.3 none the less) This one isn't any particular lynx that i have chose, i was just scrolling through HAS.2/3 pictures and picked one I liked the look of.... XZ725 in 1998 if anyone is asking I am using this kit to make it, but i needs to have ESM so i am scratch building the arials/sensors apart from the nose one as i have a spare. The sponsons have been changed using the spare from the last kit and milliput (I used the spare just in case i messed up) The reason i am not doing the oob
  2. Something you don't see often is this, a HMA.8 Development Lynx. I chose to make the first of 8 CTS aircraft, being XZ236. She was originally a HAS.2, until getting fitted with a seaspray, seaowl and other various equipment used on the HMA.8 in 1989. She still used the engine/gearbox system of a HAS.2, with steel blades and Anti-clockwise tail rotor, possibly getting upgraded later in the program with GEM-42s and CMRBs. I used the 1/72 Airfix Navy Lynx MK.8 (2001) kit and it was an interesting one. So the parts to make a HAS.2/3 parts were fine, the parts to make 'supe
  3. I've just noticed this GB and have had a lonely helicopter kit in my stash for a while, so will be joining in with this one! It will probably be built OOB, due to the time constraints of a GB. I might be tempted to get some PE for it, but no guarantees... I'll take some photos tonight and get my WIP started soon.
  4. Hello Folks Haven't had much bench time in the last few months but I just managed to get this one done. It is the truly horrible Roden issue of the Skymaster with extra parts to represent an aircraft operated by No. 4 Sqn Rhodesian Air Force during the Bush War. After embargoes were imposed on the regime at the time by the major powers, Rhodesia turned to French company REIMS who modified civilian Cessna 337 Skymasters. The added weapons capabilities in the form of 2 x 303 Browning machine guns mounted above the cabin and strengthened underwing hardpoints gave the Lynx a formidable close
  5. Apologies to all for my silence of late. Partly I’ve just been ludicrously busy. But I’ve also encountered a problem: I can’t paint in the flat I stay in during the week. [My mate’s flat: my mate’s rules] But since I started this job 90% of my modelling time has been on weekday evenings. So I’ve had a rethink. Dido has been (very carefully - & successfully) transported home, since she now needs paint before she can go any further. The Seaking is too fragile to risk SouthWest Trains, and other stalled builds (Walrus, Seafire 47) are also at the paint stage.
  6. Augusta Westland Lynx Mk.8 Revell 1/32 History The initial design, then known as the Westland WG.13, was started in the mid-1960s as a replacement for the Westland Scout and Wasp, and a more advanced alternative to the UH-1 Iroquois. The design was to be powered by a pair of Bristol Siddeley BS.360 turboshaft engines. As part of the Anglo-French helicopter agreement signed in February 1967, French company Sud Aviation (later Aérospatiale) had a 30 per cent share of production work, Westland performing the remainder. It was intended that France would procure the Lynx
  7. Hi, I've received a nice photo of a Lynx in desert livery from a friend a while ago asking "Nice, isn't it?" Well, I was hooked... even I have no previous experience with helicopter models. After a short research - I have NO previous knowledge about any Lynx - decision was made. I've grabed an AH7 boxing and did some conversion planing: 1) new 'metal' rotor blades 2) new bigger tailplane I have also ordered a complete set of Eduard PE (interior, exterior, seat belts) and mask. The last but not least is the Xtradecal sheet depicting the famous XZ221 J from Operation Granby... I have st
  8. Saw one of the above in a model shop yesterday for £6.99. Now the world is not exactly awash with Lynx moulds in 1/72. I was wondering whose mould it is. Is this a chance to obtain a Hobbyboss kit (for all its flaws) on the cheap?
  9. Having just joined the forum, and being a Matchbox kit enthusiast, I thought I'd dive straight into the group build with the Westland Lynx. The kit itself is of the prototype version (Navy and Army) with the 3 windows in the doors. It's one of the kits I made as a boy, so I'm long overdue for another go at it. It'll probably be an OOB build with nothing fancy, although that may change. Pictures to follow.
  10. 1/72 Airfix Lynx built as the HAS.3 special fit as flown from the type 22 frigate, HMS Brave; along with a Bedford Tactical Refueller in Royal Navy Scheme. Some decals were poorly printed but overall not a bad build.
  11. This is the brand new special scheme to celebrate 37 years of Lynx service in the Danish armed forces. The port side represents the ongoing task around Greenland where the Danish Lynx is present 24/7/365. The starboard side represents the international operations (mostly in and around the Somali basin). The Danish Lynx fleet is gradually being retired, and the last Lynx will be retired by the end of 2017. Jens
  12. Early 2017 Air-Graphics is to release resin conversion sets for the Airfix 1/72nd Westland Lynx kit (ref.03025) Sources: https://www.facebook.com/airgraphicmodels/photos/?tab=album&album_id=880681465399057 http://www.72news.eu/2016/10/air-graphics-army-air-corp-westland.html V.P.
  13. Happy New Year everyone, I spent most of my schooldays on the edge of Salisbury Plain where Wessex, Lynx and Gazelle helicopters were almost a daily sight. I opted to model one from each of the main services in 1/72 scale. All are out of the box (apart from seat belts), brush painted but spray varnished. Need more practice on my masking! They were great fun to do. RAF Wessex (Italeri) - XS517was scrapped in 2002 RN Lynx (Hobby Boss) - XZ238 was last believed in storage at White Waltham Army Gazelle (Airfix) - XW844 is preserved at Fleetlands Hope you like

  16. Scaleworx is to release a 1/48th SAAF Super Lynx 300Mk.64 resin conversion set. Release expected in 2015 Source: https://www.facebook.com/scaleworx/photos/a.235132476686101.1073741852.212054182327264/387079818158032/?type=1&theater V.P.
  17. Hi all, I'm currently building a 1/48 Airfix Lynx Mk.88 in German Navy markings, and I want to add the door gun to it, but I'm rather dissapointed with the kit one. Especially the barrel is underwhelming. Does anyone have a suggestion for a decent replacement? Just the barrel will do. Thanks in advance
  18. Hi there. I would like to share my latest build of the Sea Lynx Mk 90B (RDAF) End of june I was visiting Helicopterwing Karup i Denmark, and had a tour of their facilities. They are keeping the RDAF fleet of Helicopters in shape for their duties. Today the fleet concists of Aerospatiale AS-555 Fennec (12), Agusta Westland EH-101 Merlin (13) SH-60 Seahawk (3) 6 on order. And of course the Westland Sea Lynx Mk 90B (7) used to be 14... So I just wanted to do this build of the danish Lynx before they are being taken out of service.
  19. Westland Lynx HAS.2 XX910. XX910 first flew on 23rd April 1974 as one of the pre-production prototypes of the light Lynx HAS.2, ASW helicopter. A&AEE, Boscombe Down, are believed to have used XX910 for trials of navigation equipment up to 1978, when it was transferred to the Royal Aircraft Establishment, later DERA, at Farnborough. There it was used for Seaspray radar and other avionics trials but eventually placed in storage and kept as a source of parts for use on other airframes. Acquired by The Helicopter Museum in December 2000, XX910 had never entered operational service though it ha
  20. I love birthdays! No sprue shots, sorry, but there are heaps around on the internet. Straight into it! Instrument panel: And sink marks filled: Here the instrument panel is dry fitted onto the console, on the floor of the heli. Assembled the Sea Skua missiles And Mk 11 depth charges. At least that's what the instructions say, but the blurb on the side of the box says something about Sting Ray torpedoes, so I'm not sure what they are!? (I'm no expert on such things!) The decals look fun: I want to do the black cats version though, so I probably have to invest in some decal-s
  21. The Revell 1/32 lynx is a great kit except for the main blades which bend down when on the real thing they are rigid. Does anyone know of anyone does after market one? I was thinking of drilling them out and using a metal rod to stop them drooping. I used brass tube when doing the Rotordyne but this is not an option on this kit. Any help greatly appriciated Rodders
  22. Hello! When building had no problems. a set of high-quality. It has been added to the Pavlas cabin. It was correct cut lines on the belly and added the antenna. Struts were made for blades. The set they exclusion. I had their soldering of the wires of the LEDs. Result not perfect, but better than without them. Air intakes of engines made by shrouding. The keel has been inserted to simulate the mesh grille. The model was painted Tamiya and MR Hobby paints. Weathering- oil dots and pigments.
  23. Hi All, I'm in with this 1974 made in England Matchbox 1/72nd scale 3 colour kit of the British made Westland Lynx. Box Top The other side Contents The blue sprue The other blue sprue The white sprue The instructions Inside the instructions Some more of the instructions More of the same Plus this bit Then this at the end Transfers See through parts The big questions are; Should I build it sans paint since the box claims "no painting is necessary"? And should I build it as an Army helicopter or a Navy one? More to follow over... Cheers, Daniel.
  24. Afternoon Everyone, Had this kit built since Jan but has taken me until now to paint and decal it. First time using primer, airbrushing, Humbrol acrylics, tamiya tape, micro sol and set (Never even knew these things existed until stumbling across this site last summer) Previous models were bashed out in a weekend using pots of Humbrol Enamel that I'm pretty sure I've had knocking around since I was about 6, so this was quite a learning curve. I'm sure there are lots of mistakes, joins in the plastic are pretty obvious but I'll get round to learning how to fill, sand and re-sc
