Another lynx, this time a Hobbyboss kit.

 

This one will be a normal HAS.2, with a twist that will come apparent in the a couple days.

 

As with all my recent lynx, I have detailed the interior a little bit. I made milliput soundproofing along with some detail to the seats. I kept the Cyclic (No collective in this kit) away from the observers position and tried adding something of a radar screen to the console, and some overhead console. I used some evergreen strips to try and make the door rails a bit larger like the actual lynx, although i could make them a bit thicker. On the inside of the doors i added some styrene to make the correct angle they sit at (they don't sit flush irl) The antenna on the tail are either spares or stratch built and i added the wire. The kit has the 'lump' on the tail for the reversed gearbox on later variants so i removed that Not too much has been added but this look is alot better than the kits.

Looking good,  I'm not a fan of the Hobby Boss Lynx kits and the Airfix kit is looking it's age. So, I've jumped into 48th scale with the Airfix kits, which are excellent.

Cheers. I kinda agree with you. The Hb kit is fun and i would recommend it to someone starting the hobby and isn't particularly to worried about accuracy. 1/72 is the perfect scale for me atm so i can suffer a little longer..

 

 

As for progress, well basically nothing. Waiting for some bits to arrive. Since that post i have done a quick build of an Airfix Magister (2 or 3 days) which i finished yesterday.

When Airfix released the 48th Lynx kits, I was smitten with the level of detail. I was already building 48th Wessex (Italeri), so the transition was easy. I in conjunction with Ali Cats was producing masters for our ROTORcraft range of conversions. I used an HB kit for my SA Navy Lynx using the Scaleworx conversion kit..

Not too consistent with posting on here, but she is painted and all decalled up.

 

As with some of my models, its not a standard of its type, this is representing XZ691. In 1980 she was painted in a army/marine camo to be used In Op Banner. 

This is my first time using hataka paints (red line) and i am impressed. it went down really nicely (I used X-20A to thin it). That being said, the Olive Drab is Hataka and the Black is Tamiya. Flotation bag covers are made from tissue paper. The rotor head was painted Hataka Darks ea grey with a black wash and the blades were painted Tamiya RAF DG 2 with Revell Yellow tip edge markers and folding markers (can't think of the proper name but they indicate where the blade holder thing goes when folded)
