Cyberhobby 1/72 S61A Sea King Antarctica Observation

March 26, 2021 · in Aviation · · 13 · 2.7K

A very good kit, very rich in detail. Comparing the kit with photos of the real helicopter, the kit gives some extra pieces that I'm not sure if the were to be used, yet other details aren't there at all.

Eduard interior and few scratch built additions were added in the interior and exterior.

Since has no reference for interior colors, I consulted hasegawa's 1/48 instructions.

Decals are PERFECT and plentiful, but they are printed very close to one another (some even inside each other - such as the black/yellow window frames), making it a hassle to isolate them. Used Vallejo paints and Marabu varnishes.

There are a lot of external bits and details that pop out, and extra care must be taken not to break them.

All in all, a pleasant build.

Hope you like it!

  13. Hello George,
    Colorful and with a powerful look with all those extra bits. Especially the rear view mirrors are the eye catcher of the model. (For me).
