1/72 Revell, my first Wessex, I modified, replaced and added a few things, finished in Revell and MM enamels with Future over Aussie decals.

Beautiful work in any scale, Allan...and extraordinary craftsmanship accomplished with THIS build.
Nothing more to say than Craig already did.
Just the photos could be a bit better with two simple steps on "photoshop" (or an other photo-treatment).
p.s. I don't how to add an example - or send it in a PM
Thanks Hans, I don't know how either, do I even have photo shop !
I had a trip in a Wessex while I was in the RAF in the late sixties, they were having a trial of dropping Land Rovers on Salisbury Plain to see what height they could survive a drop from! Great looking model, Allan, that Navy scheme is really neat.
Thanks George, I know the average car doesn't survive 150' or there about.
Nice job Allan. You seem to have mastered the chopper class for sure. Not sure I'm up to the task of building these finicky models.
Thanks Tom, give it a go !
Excellent build and finish on this old RAN workhorse.
These choppers did have a beautiful paint scheme
Nice! What did you use for the rigging? It looks good for scale, and at 72 that can be difficult.
Thanks Greg, invisible mending thread in black.
Great job, good looking scheme, I still love your tarmac.
