  1. Hello gents, I had been busy and was updating my page about how to build 1/48 army/navy Lynx. I came to conlusion that I could rebuild the page to have all scales covered. So, here is the still-in-progress page - http://www.dstorm.eu/pages/en/gb/lynx_versions.html I will try to update the page with more pics of sets or other multimedia (will be ordering the Rotorcraft sets this week). Also, any comments/additions/corrections are highly appreciated. Hope this helps to anybody who wants to build correct Gulf war either Army or Navy Lynx in his/her favourite scale. Best regards Jakub
  2. Could not resist Revells Royal Navy lynx in Modelzone sale.I plan to finish it as the HMS endurance option,Am I right in thinking that this aircraft would not carry the machine gun or other armament included in the kit?
  3. Apologies for iffy camera work; iPad. Even with that I am startled to see how unforgiving the camera is; I have seen half a dozen things that need fixing! Still, I am loving doing this again (model was a present from my Mrs, who is now starting to wonder whether she has unleashed a monster!), and reasonably pleased with initial efforts. Weathering of the floor and rear wall coming out as intended (it is supposed to be somewhat streaky; I recall my cab looked like that after a few attempts at cleaning it). Likewise weathering of seats seems to be working. On the other hand, in real life th
  4. I got a bagged Frogspawn Lynx minus instructions and decals a few weeks back and I had no intention of building it OOB, so with the help of numerous builds here and photos online I decided to fudge a hypothetical Army version. Here's the backstory: Westland Lynx AH.3 - Export version designed for the Royal New Zealand Air Force with 835 kW (1,120 shp) Gem 41-1 engines and uprated gearbox. 12 produced and delivered 1986-87. Later upgraded with BERP blades. Now replaced with AH.9. As 1985 began the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) issued a requirement for a light battlefield heli
  5. Hi all, I'm contemplating a 1/72 build of a Lynx AH.1 but I'm aware of three kits: Airfix, MPC (which appears to come with a set of figures) and Plastyk. A look on eBay suggests the Frog kit could be built as both army and navy versions. Which of these is the most accurate to build an AH.1? Or is there something else out there? (in 1/72...not yet keen enough to follow Lynx7's lead with the Revell beastie!) Thanks for any and all help you can provide, it's much appreciated!
  6. So while waiting for the orange to dry on the new Vampire I decided to open up one of the Lynx's' in a rapidly expanding stash. Cabin floor painted and the centre console and Left Collective placed. Cabin ceiling covering Rear cabin covering Cabin coming along, the seat frames are built up and one is painted ready for the covers to be added and then the pedals and control column. Then a bit of tidying up on the rough edges. I'm not predicting a quick build, so far it's hand painted with enamels (forgot how good they are) but hopefully I'll have an airbrush soon (I lack the sanity t
  7. As mentioned elsewhere - kit received - there's an extra sprue not shown in instructions that *looks* like it has the upper nose, different tail and a host of other parts for the HMA8!! The sprue is labelled 'Q' and includes most of the parts I *think* you need to build a Royal Navy HMA8 - with a cut and shut plus hinges to add the differing tail to the tail boom as moulded by Revell. Here's the sprue in question: EDIT: Almost tempted to make some patterns once I establish what needs to be done! (I know - should finish the Lightning stuff - but this looks a *lot* easier! ) Will post m
  8. I meant to post this with my other Fleet Air Arm models earlier this week. Made straight out of the box and finished with brush painted acrylics. Thanks for looking.
  9. Here's all the modelling I've done so far for 2012, minus a few binned failures (AZ Spitfire Vb with horribly askew landing gear, some others) and a Whif (USN Sea Hawk). I expect to finish a Merlin and hopefully a fast jet before the arrival of the new year, but this is probably pretty representative of my work as a whole. Please excuse the quality of the photos, I use my phone camera, and please excuse the quality of the models as well.
  10. fast forward to 3:20ish..... well recovered though, fortunately! Wonder what caused it? Andrew

  12. Hi guys, Here is yet another Lynx to look at. Not accurate as you can tell by the seat colours but im happy with it. Hope you like it & i am open to friendly banter. Cheers
  13. After the Belcher Bits announcement (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.p...topic=234919363) here's the RotorCraft/A2Zee one about some Airfix Lynx conversion sets due out towards the end of June! Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.p...p;#entry1045994 V.P.
