1/32 Scale Westland Wessex HC.2 from Fly Models
This is my completed Westland Wessex from Fly Models, 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,

Looks like it's right off the flight line! Oh to have the room for this scale.
Thanks for the comment Robert, its a big kit, need lots of room for this one.
What a great lookin' job, Marc...kudos on that Union Jack paint job!
Hey there Craig, Thanks for the comment, I loved painting this kit.
she's a beauty! Great finish and weathering, and I was gonna ask if that Union Jack was a decal, but you answered that! Nicely done.
Thanks Greg, That Union Jack was a Bugger to mask and paint, but I enjoyed it non the less. Thanks for the comment.
FANTASTIES. Marc this is masterclass modelling! I am sure this model is a contender for model of the month. Welgedaan ou vriend!
My Maater, Thanks for the comment. I keep trying to get that perfect model, goed gaan.
Brilliant model, especially that Union flag on the front.
Thanks George, I think the flag makes the model in this case.
Great good looking model, thank you.
Thank you very much Christian
Wow Marc, this is a superb model! Well done! That Union Jack is a work of art!
Thank you very much indeed for you kind comment Ian, glad you like it, Now, where to put it.
yeah, I have serious issues with that too... ! Haha!
I am now looking at having another display cabinet made, I will have to talk to my Wife about moving out, so that I have more space...Ha ha
Great job on this. Marc. Your attention to detail is to be commended.
Thank you for your kind comment Rob. Much appreciated.
Looks great buddy. Just one question marc... where did you get that magnificent pilot figure? Ahhh never mind it came out brilliant.
Hey Bud, thanks for the comment, yes I must admit to everybody the figure came from you. Thanks bud, see you soon.
Very nice a Marc! That's some impressive painting and masking!
Thanks Richard, the masking of the flag was the Big job.
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!
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.
The Royal Navy is the Senior Service.
The Army and Royal Air Force not always best impressed with the term!
Cheers Mark, thanks for the explanation.
Outstanding! Beautiful Union Jack!
beautiful work, can you tell what colors you used from the fs?
