    you haven't got much choice, it is either the Tamiya or the Airfix one. Both need quite some work to bring up to standard, but the basics are there. I have got the airfix one.

    Have now finished bulkheads for hull openings, which I have extensively detailed fom the usual stuff...some of thenm were modified as well as kit's offerings not correct. Have also completed the Seaking 820 Squadron which were equipped with tyhe HAS 5 versions. 2 HC4 troop carriers were also thrown in to make the project more interesting. These were converted from the US version SH 3H seaking....

    Lou it is so good to see you back in action. That is some excellent work you are doing there. Simply beautiful detailing. Those choppers are really great, up to your inimitable standard.

    It looked weathered to me :s only thing is the purposely 'bent', flat, figures look funny lol! and there are too many of them with ther hands up.. like their saluting hitler. but from a distance the figures give it life

    Wow Nan, veru tal-genn. You SHOULD be happy with the whirlybirds, they look fantastic now that they are painted there is no way you can tell they are that small. The boats are great, looking really good.
