Having been lucky enough to see the Norwegian AW101s training in Cornwall during the last 3 weeks I was delighted to see the contents of the impending Xtradecal set https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X72279

Here are a few of the Helicopters featured in the sheet that I've been able to catch in Cornwall in recent years:

Xtradecal have ZR337 as the UK serial for the Nigerian, but only ZR344 and ZR345 wore these colours.

ZR344 (NAF280)

Thanks Peter.  Your images have inspired me to dig out my Anigrand 1:144 kits and have a go at a Norge and possibly the Algerian version.

 

cheers.

Great pics,...thanks for sharing them,..... does anybody know who ZR343 is bound for? Is it a demonstrator?

 

Cheers

It's from the cancelled Indian order and then used as a demonstrator/company aircraft - configured for VVIP use. Was used to transport david Cameron to a summit in Wales in 2014.

 

Then went to Indonesia, but that procurement itself is now mired in controversy, and I beleive it live sin a hanger in Jakarta!

Great pictures.

 

Does anybody knows the status of Italeri HH-101C caesar?

 

The scheme is included in the xtradecal sheet but I don't know if there is any conversion around-

 

Cheers
