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 started rotor modification by creating new blade tips from a set of 'folded' blades: Final result... ... and remains Next is the new tailplane It's made from a 1/144 DC-9 tailplane Next will be interior details... S.
Well it's finished(!) one Jaguar GR.1 by Italeri in 1/72 scale with Pavla cockpit and ejection seat. Minor modifications made from bored out rear vents to custom nose cone using clear plastic. Primed with Humbrol acrylic grey undercoat from a spray can, followed by Tamiya paints, Humbrol Clear and Vallejo Matt Varnish after decals and weathering (oil paint wash with turp substitute).

Hi gents, just got Aviation News Magazine Vol.19 No.26 (1991), there is an article "Royal Navy commando helicopters return from Gulf war". Problem is, that the magazine is missing pages, so I only have the last page (page no. 1209) of this article. Is there any chance somebody has this issue and is willing to scan this article for me please ? Would like to add it to my ever-growing Gulf war collection. One more question - there is Seaking HC.4 marked "WP" in Gulf colors, but with no serial number - any chance to find it ? Thanks in advance and best regards. Jakub
