Westland Wessex HAS3 HMS London Flight 1/72


Recommended Posts

My second lockdown completion and another Wessex, this time a HAS3, it is the 1/72 Italeri kit with the Rotorcraft correction and External fuel tank and pylon 

from Air Graphics, markings came from the kit and various Modeldecal sheets some of the markings are a best guess as HMS Londons Wessex 3 seems to have

been a bit camera shy and I could only find two very poor pictures of her including one that showed the name 'Cockney Rebel' but I'm happy with it

Great looking Wessex that. I'm amazed that I haven't seen it before given that I was building a Wessex from HMS London last summer too. I see you sorted the dodgy tail rotor and pylons out. 😉 Anyway, super job.

Hello Junglierating,

What is the I band bean can.

 

The model looks great. Beautiful color scheme.

The more Wessex and Sikorskys "The Better".
