Lovely work Mr G. Always nice to see your builds of the best (biased) aircraft in the world!

Thank you Mr M, you will have spotted our baby

I'm working my way towards something similar, ie., one of each Mark (and subtype, eg., HAR.3 and HAR.3A; HC.4 and HC.4+).

Using Revell kits for all my Westland variants, and Fujimi for Sikorsky, United Aircraft Canada and Mitsubishi versions.....

Going to play 'ID the kit' with yours - I think the HC.4s are all Cyberhobby, and the others all Airfix, with no Revell at all?

You are correct, all kits are Airfix, the 3 Mk4's are Dragon except the 48th scale which is Hasegawa with Mk4 conversion kit.

Next planned Sea King build is the new Airfix Mk4 but she will be a raspberry ripple Mk4x.

Hi Tiger331

I don't know if this will be of any help to you but I have lots of photos of ZF119 when it was across the water during the early nineties. If they are of any help I am happy to scan them and email them to you. There is 28 photos in total showing both interior and exterior shots.

Farnborough's, or Bedford's? I believe the other MoD(PE) ones were 'normal' HC.4s....

Going to do ZB507 I think when she was trialing the merlin radar.

That would be ZB506, then, which was RAE Bedford's: http://www.airliners.net/photo/UK---Air/Westland-WS-61-Sea/1233371/L/&sid=2f2ad3525aa5aa539a0ab7a5e9d1d291

ZB507 was RAE Farnborough's, which I believe was used for radio/avionics testing with various aerial fits over the years.....

Ha, I was on 772 from 93 to 95 and my cab was ZF121 hence the two drab olive MK4's are 121 @ 1/72 & 1/48.

I was at Portland 91-92 then again 94-97. Best shore draft I've ever had.

I have spent many hours being ferried around in the Junglie version. I remember abseiling from one into the jungle once and was left spinning around underneath it, legs kicking various things dangling from the belly before I could descend the rope.... Hope I didn't break anything.... :-)
