Westland Super Lynx 300 Mk 64 by Scaleworx in 48th scale...

Recommended Posts

A long time in it's gestation but here it is. I just recieved the second castings from Scaleworx and aimed at converting the Airfix 48th scale Lynx kit into the Super Lynx 300 Mk 64. The parts a very well cast in Scaleworx customary light blue resin. There are a few air bubble but nothing to worry those modellers already used to resin kits. The kit comprises a new nose, engine/main rotor hosing, instrument panel and centre console. These are supported by a sellection of detail parts.

The parts were mastered by myself and modified/updated by John at Scaleworx. I had worked from a limited sellection of photos of and early example, John had access to the real item.

 

Here is what you get...

Yes indeed Crisp. I started fettling the parts after I recieved them yesterday at noon.  I'll post some more pics later today cabin assembled and the centre console fitted so far.

This is not going to be a quick build, I've a Wessi to fininish in the STGB before Feb.

OK, I got a little more done last eve, I removed the seat belt detail from the rear bulkhead. Cut the front bulkhead out with a little mishap on the post side, removed the undetailed centre console and inserted the new part. I also added the gunners seat plate to the cabin floor.

I need to wait for the underside part to come back from Cape Town before I can carry on. So it may be a while before i can get back to this build.

OK guys, a small update. yesterday pm I got the instrument panel, centre console and cabin painted and the seat/fuel rtank installed. The cabin back wil was alos added after I had painted the sound deadening quilting.

I subsequently received the decal sheet, small but crisply printed via the ALPS system. More of that next time.

Ok guys, I managed a couple of hours on the Super Lynx. Lots of filing and cursing to get the cabin assembly into the fus, halves and to get it to close up... I think it was still a tad too fat!!

Here are the pics of my progres so far, including the cracked windscreen ...

This is the fus, underside, along the joint line there is some filler. I should have looked at the cabin/cockpit fit again before buttoning thigs up, it has compromised the fit of the nose!!!

 

Then when I  fished the clear part sprue out of the storge box I was keeping all my Lynx kits in, disaster... The widscreen part is shattered!!! Luckily I had a second/third kit I can rob the screen off so i'll replace the spare sprue.

Right, some detailing this afternoon, then I'll post again later this week.

 

Thanks for looking in...

Bill. I understand but if Mr Jones had waited for Photobucket to post his songs, he may well have just been a one hit wonder... Luckily for him in those day they didn't exist.

Fine,very fine work Colin

Nice

I'm enjoying the build Bill, I mastered the parts but it's taken more than three years to get them to market. They're not cheap but hey, I got them out there, it's up to the punters to grab them whilst they are available.

 

When I had/started ROTORcraft I made parts thatI I wanted and I originally cast them for myself and offered them on the web. However the postal system here in SA etc, gave me greif and I all but gave up, That is when/until Ali from Ali Cats and I got together to market the kits/conversions. Helos are always going to be at the back of the frame when it come to the buying public but hey we kept a good few people happy. For that I'm greatful.

The Siper Lynx kit is/maybe  my last...
