Revell 1/32 Westland Lynx Mk8


Recommended Posts

My first venture into the rotary model world and one that I enjoyed despite being out of my comfort zone! I used the BigEd pe set (33104) and the scalewarship rotor fold set along with a lot of scratch building. I painted it using Tamiya XF's and pastels.spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.png

Love it, I’ve just bagged myself one of these 2 weeks ago on eBay. I used to overhaul the blades and then went disassembling them for common parts for Wildcat. Suppose I’ll do it one day……

Gotta love a Lynx!! Looks fabulous, very impressive. The Eduard set looks great. I've just ordered some photo-etched Eduard details for my Harrier GR.3 in colour. I've been away from aircraft since the early 90's and had never seen the coloured etched parts before...

Thanks speedy! that's where I found this one..the extras cost more than the kit (as usual!)

Excellent. I think helicopters suit big scales. 

It's easy to see you  put in a lot work to get that result. Very realistic indeed.

Many thanks noelh much appreciated!

Thanks Steve...I have mixed feelings for the coloured/self adhesive pe but it proved useful on this build!

Fantastic build, superb detail and I just love the scenery!

Many thanks Fred piket! The scenery in my garden certainly helps when it comes to photographing my kits..

Is that a markings scheme provided with the kit or did you find a supplier of alternatives?

The decals came with the kit Francis and was one of two options

Superb. This is very good indeed.

 

It's the first time I've seen those little grey blobs of grease from the rotors modelled. Great little detail

Well spotted Bertie!! Thanks for your kind comments...Kev

I'm not entirely unfamiliar with helicopters. I suspect you have been up close to a few yourself?

Plenty of up close and personal with a few Bertie but only of the civilian variety! Someone pointed out on another site that I'd actually fitted the u/c incorrectly.......and I had!!! (all corrected now though)

 

I just attribute the oversight to spending too much time on the micro painting of the thing!!

 

Cheers, Kev

I once transposed the u/c on a Tamiya Skyraider port for starboard, despite all of the anti-Murphy devices. It took me ages to realise what I had done despite plentiful references. Sometimes we need the modelling equivalent of a proof reader to help us see what we have done. A goof reader perhaps?
