Itty-bitty Sea King Mk. 41

Recommended Posts

Eager to 'upgrade' to the impressive new AFV Club 1/144 Sea King double kit, I decided to polish off my last (in the stash, at least) Sweet 1/144 eggbeater. Markings are those supplied with the kit, the long-serving scheme for one of the busy search-and-rescue machines of the Marineflieger's MFG-5.

You must be a sort of a daredevil by tempting that carpet monster with such a tiny but very neat build...

that's a superb 1/144 build you have achieved there. A great subject and very nicely presented. I once built Sweets RAF Yellow King and seem to remember it had 4 or 5 clear nose/front end pieces which must be kicking around the bottom of my spares box if anyone wants one due to 'accidents' when painting

 

tip top on your King

Either you are the proud owner of an oversized penny, or you have amazing skills! 😁

That is impressive 👍

Cheers,

Awesome little build. Looks amazing. I’ve done a couple of these and they are great little kits in my preferred scale.

I'm tempted to say 'you've found me out'...but with copper prices these days, there's no way I could afford a penny that big! ;)

Brilliant result on your Sea King Greg, especially as it is in 1/144 scale.

I really like the early MFG 5 scheme and is one I plan to do myself in 1/72.

Me too. I've got an old Model Decal sheet with markings for the same exact a/c in 1/72. That one will be up for a bit more detail, when I get around to it....

Superb build in such a small scale.
