Hi all.

 

Just finished today - a 1/72 Westland Lynx HAS.2 built OOB in the markings of 700sq Fleet Air Arm, RNAS Yeovilton ca. 1978. The kit was from a 1982 rebox, and I'm thinking the decals were original, and most of them shattered on contact. Anyway, I had enough spares to cover all the others so she can look the part. As the Lynx is an early first production version, and carries a pair of Mk.46 Torpedoes.

 

The kit shows its age, but still builds into a good depiction of arguably the fastest helicopter designed, and one of the few that can do a complete roll. She differs from the Army version by being equipped with a tricycle undercarriage and a deck restraint systems, folding main rotor blades, an emergency floatation system and a nose-mounted radar.

 

Enjoy!

Clean build - she looks great! Did you remove overdone rivets & surface detail along the way?

 

Thank you.

 

No rivets to speak of. The surface details were just the panel lines. All in the right place, so just smoothed them down.
