  1. @Ex-FAAWAFU @junglierating @hendie @MarkdipXV711 and any other knowledgeable Rotor-heads I couldn't think of at the time... I came across these pictures of a Sea King HAS.5 (I think) and the sponsons are definitely not your average Westland ones and look very similar to the ones used by the USN on their ASW Sea Kings. Given I have a Revell Sea King in 1/48 then these sponsons could allow me to build a FAA Sea King 'on the cheap'. I'd still have to remove the flare dispenser from the port side ones and find a HAS.5 radome (unless these were used on HAS.2) but the Stbd. one is a dead ringer. Question is, why did they use these for what appears to be a short time before reverting to the conventional sponson? Early and Late FAA Sea Kings don't look like this AFAIK. Happy to be educated. NB: Credit to original photographers and images only reproduced for educational / illustrative purposes.
  2. Hi all, started this one a few days ago intending to make it a quick holiday build. The kit is the Australian Navy boxing of Mach 2's Squirrel. Parts require a lot of flash cleanup, no great problem in itself, I was still expecting a relatively quick build. I'd heard rumours of Mach 2 kits so perhaps I was naive - this one is fighting me all the way. The rear of the engine housing looks all wrong to my eye: And the exhaust is less than convincing: As a result I ordered some styrene tubing and will have a go at fashioning the exhaust myself. The rear of the engine housing has been hacked away and will hopefully be rebuilt into something a little more likelike. Whilst waiting for the styrene delivery I cracked on cleaning up the skids. As you can see, the fit is perfect . Cue another order for some brass rod to replace the 'legs' - which are completely the wrong shape anyway judging by the photos I've seen. And to top it all off, I still can't find anyone with the decals willing to sell . In the end I've started a Merlin build to run alongside to keep me sane.
  3. I discovered this little gem just now. A fascinating read: http://helicopterstory.blogspot.ie/2012_03_07_archive.html Tony
