1/72 Airfix Seaking HAR.3 (old tool) Finished


Recommended Posts

Hi all, hope you had a happy Christmas. 

 

On Christmas my stash has grown a little, by ten. These included 5 lynx (ready for the 50th year since its first flight), A Rotodyne, Belvedere, Whirlwind, Seaking (all 72 scale) and finally a 1/144 A380 (which is mahoosive) 

 

It took me a while to choose, but as the title suggests i chose the Seaking to build.

 

Being the old tool kit, i have heard a lot of bad about it. So far, apart from having a non existent interior, its not terrible. I decided to only add seat belts to the cockpit seats and nothing else for the interior.

I have now added the canopy, which was a struggle, and started filling.

585 has been fully built, sanding and filling has been almost finished. Not too much bad too say about this build if I'm honest, definitely not the worst kit i have tackled. Rotors and Radome left removable for ease of painting.

Finished the king probably the best of a week ago now, and I have let myself down. I decided to try to add some exhaust staining to it (which i never do) and completely messed it up. Luckily it wasn't the best of kits, and i want to build another HAR.3 in the future. The decals are ever so slightly milky, I'm assuming its just down to the age. (its not silvering, im a bit too used to that) The mrbs weren't painted in any particular way, just looked at some HAR.3 photos and like them with one yellow blade. I look the like of this one, but hate it at the same time. I also forgot to add clear smoke to the sun windows but oh well.
