1:48 Wessex HAS.MK 3
December 4, 2015 in Aviation
An out of the box build (Revell-Germany) of a British Wessex Helicopter of the Royal Navy. I model this after the helios used in the Falkland war. The original airframe is based on the Sikorsky S-58 (H-34) and subsequently licensed to Westland Aircraft in which they added the variant turbine engine power plants. For the purist this Revell model kit is not true to the actual helicopter as the landing gear and wind screen canopy are wrong. I think that the model company repurposed their H-34 kit and just change the front engine fuselage door assembly. I believe that there are some aftermarket parts available that would remedy this.
