Westland Wessex HU5 1/72


Recommended Posts

Although not of the standard of some of the Wessex Helicopters shown on these pages I have finally finished my latest work a 1/72 Italeri Wessex finished as an HU5

of Lee on the Solent SAR Flight, I wanted a Lee airframe as its my local Airfield. I have used the Eduard Etched sets and the Rotorcraft correction set, paint used was from the 

Hataka Public services paint set. As I said its not to the the standard of some of the Wessex Helos on here, but I'm quite pleased with it.

An excellent build and I'll echo what others said about the very nice color scheme. That will stand out nicely in your collection.

No need to make comparisons with anyone else's work, that stands out alone as an excellent model. Looks bigger than 1/72, lovely sharp finish 👏👏👏

 

Also brings back great childhood memories for me, lived near HMS Daedalus and these were a very common sight in the skies above my house - even remember one bringing Santa to our school in Rowner 😂
