Hobby boss RAF lynx 1/72 ,thats what the box said.So i ordered it ,arrived in two days. Champion.Got all the way to the end of building,so far so good no real fit issues,only a small bit of filler,Glass went in no problem,paint looked good ,yeah pretty good build, and get set for putting the decals on.Q trouble .Only two sets of decals and neither was for the RAF lynx.Instead they were decals for the royal Neitherland air force or the German marines.Bol lix!!!What to do>????I know paint it in green n grey camo and managed to find some decals from other builds.I dont know if our RAF does a lynx helicopter in this camo but i dont really care.Its finish,it goes well on my shelf,although it now looks like it has 10 coats of paint on it and a big Royal Airforce sticker on it.Oh well you live and learn.Onwards n upwards.

The Royal Air Force was originally intended to receive Lynx but for whatever reason (politics, money, money and politics) never did.  Not sure if they were intended as light assault/infantry support or advanced trainers (to follow on from the Gazelle) but it's one of those less-often-explored branches of What-If? territory.  I really must get my pair of Airfix 1/48th AH7s finished, so thank you for sharing yours and initiating a bit of a KUTA I hope.
