Hi Guys & Gals...I present to you, my lastest completion. The New Tool Sea King. It took me 3 attempts to get the camo half decent, the 3rd of which was achieved by 8 hours of masking.

It was mentioned Mark,the Rescue version has been a mixed bag,as I always manage to push the windows in handling helicopter kits I painted

and decalled the fuselage sides before assembly now I have to mask the lot to spray the tail,sponsons etc! the decals were awful silvering as soon

as dry,luckily I spotted it early but had to gloss under and over the decals it took hours!

Really? I only had silvering on the transparent ones at the rear of the model. The rest went on alright. What do you use on decals? I had Mircoset & Sol on them, first time too, I was very impressed with it. Much better than decalfix

Never use anything Mark just a good gloss surface,it just seems Airfix have an issue with letters/serials on a lot of new tool kits.

Great work.

You should try it mate, it'll change your outlook on decals completely. It takes a lot for me to try something new, but I'm totally chuffed i did in the end.

Outstanding build and the camo's a lot better than 'half decent' :goodjob: ...

Thank you!...You should have seen the previous 2 attempts! haha

You masked that!!! Man you have some patience! :D Was worth it though as it looks great.

Yeah, but all the way through I wanted to rush it and just get it painted, I'm so glad I held my patience in

Very nice indeed, the effort taken on that masking has really paid off

Great work.

Thank You Bob, it really has. It's a new benchmark for me to try and improve upon

Very cool build, I've been wanting to build that scheme for a while

Go and do it, it really makes you appreciate masking tape :)

Great build...fantastic scheme

Thanks Richard, do you fancy it one day?

That's why I went for the other option on my first build!

Seriously, that is a fantastic bit of masking and painting, and it looks pretty awesome to me. Fully intend to have a crack at this one too. I just wish Airfix had taken a bit more time to look at that sand filter and its decal colours, it's probably the only weak point of the kit.

Congrats on a very fine piece of modelling, and a lesson in patience!

I can see why, one of my friends did too. Youre right about the sand filter, I think you can get resin ones, but a) i'm not confident wth resin, and B) this was supposed to be a weekend build to get my mojo back, it ended up taking over a week and a half.

Thank you very much, if there's anything I did learn, its that masking, when done properly makes a model. As does tinted windows

Thank You, I'd like that too, but my LMS can't get hold of it. It may have to be an online buy.

Thanks Tony, I'm not in a hurry to replicate it though
