1/48 Falkland wessex done, this ones for you OZ H

Recommended Posts

This is the 1/48 scale Wessex kit from Italeri, it knocks spots off the old Revel kit, and for me this is going to be the first of many

One person I must mention here is Oz H for the big X`s thanks mate

Love it - I remember my first time and only time in the back of a RAF Wessex on exercise on Sennybridge in 1980. I may have to give in and get one of these!

Hi Malc,

Absolutely great model and reminds me when I used to fly in these beasts whilst on 848 and 845 NAS.

That last photo, did the decal come like that - "NO AND HOLD?? :hmmm:

Hi Mireson, lovely work for a ugly machine. I hope that Italeri releases a new mould for the HAS 3 "Humprey" too, soon. :goodjob:

What you say about the quality of mould ? The parts fits well ?

Very nice Malc, the more of these I see the more I think I want one!

You've produced a real stunner there.

These Wessex's (Wessi ????) are coming out thick and fast now, and every one of them seem to be stunners :)

Lovely detail

Great model, Best thing about the Wessex was after a cold long patrol you would always get a blast of hot air from the engines as you were getting on. bliss.

Hi Malc,

further to my previous comments (I've just had another look at your photos) and I'd like to say that I really like that rotor head assembly and how you've finished it :thumbsup:
