1/32 Scale Westland Wessex HC.2 from Fly Models

February 29, 2016 · in Aviation · · 30 · 6.3K

This is my completed Westland from , Man this is a big kit, and a enjoyment to build.
I did quite a bit of scratch building in the interior and the open avionics bay in the nose, as you will see from the first pictures I posed, the biggest challenge was the masking and painting of the Union Jack on the nose.

I absolutely loved building this kit and I recommend it to everyone with a large display case.

I hope you enjoy the pictures,

  13. Lovely job. Looks a great model. I am tempted by this kit but would have to do a Senior Service one not a Crab Air one!

  14. Hey there Mark, thanks for your kind comments, for us colonials here in South Africa, define the Senior service one. Sorry don't mean to sound stupid.
