Airfix 1/72nd Westland Sea King HAR 3
The newish Airfix Sea Kings are really good kits and build well. Whilst they maybe lack a bit of rivet detail and appear a bit more smoother skinned that real Sea Kings, in 1/72 that a liveable issue.
One thing Airfix did not so well is the air filter box above the windscreen. The use of decals on a plain sided box just does not look right. I therefore back dated mine to an earlier version.
However I took artistic licence with the markings applied, as they are for a more recent HAR 3A. I can live with it though!
If you like British Sea Kings, then the Airfix kits are spot on. Now here’s hoping that they look at doing the Sikorsky versions, as I a real soft spot for US Navy versions.
