  1. 🎵Here I go again🎶 another Matchbox build. The kit is from 1974 (I turned 2 that year) and these little kits are wonderful. The model in itself fell together. Almost no filling and sanding. Details were sparse so I added a little, like extending the oleos, adding brake lines, torpedo suspension bands and engine F.O.D covers. The covers were a great way to disguise the terrible intakes. Main colour was Games Workshop “Necron Abyss” blue. And the original decals were fine! Interesting detail on this model you will notice are the odd weapon stations and the 3 windows in the cargo doors. No Matchbox didn’t get it wrong. This is how the pre-production Lynx looked. The windows would be replaced by a single egress type each side and the fancy weapon stations changed to accommodate the release system that already existed.
  2. XZ691 Westland Lynx HAS.2 RNAS Yeovilton 29 JSTU 1980 So, another lynx. This one i am very happy with. Before i talk about the model, lets talk about the real thing. XZ691 was a HAS.2 that got selected to be used in OP BANNER in Northern Ireland. She was stripped of her standard scheme (Blue) and painted in Army/Marine Camo and was put in 29 JSTU (Joint Services Trials Unit) I could only find one picture of her, so anything on the port side could be fiction. Because the picture was taken at an angle, It was somewhat difficult to follow the camo. After putting decals on i realised that is was pretty inaccurate. The band on the Aft fuselage/start of the tail should be a lot wider in particular. The blue sun shield is way too opaque (I have no translucent blue and probably won't until after this lockdown). I did some minor modifications that are needed on Hobby post lynx. The Flotation bags are made from tissue paper, and I like the look quite a bit. The tags are made from Masking tape. Even though there isn't many decals, I used quite a range including 2 Xtradecals sheets, the kit sheet, and an Airfix sheet. This was my first time using Hataka paints (Red Line) and I am very happy with them and will buy more in the future.. The Olive Drab is Hataka and Black is Tamiya. WIP: Edit: I've just read that she was rolled out the factory in 1979, so she may have not been painted blue beforehand and rolled out with this camo.
