    Another nice helo I like very much. Great start Allan, looking forward to your progress.

    A great addition Allan – and perfect to complete the spread of our new builds through every decade of the RAF – I think it takes a special skill to take on Rotary aircraft – and you have it in spades!

    Thank you Ferry, ———-

    Thank you Paul, the Wessex has spades as well !!! —————–,
    having checked my references again it will be diamonds not spades !!!

    Looking very much ready to come together now Allan. I think there is a moment in every build when a lot of small well-prepared plastic parts begin to transform into something special – that’s where we are here I sense. The interior paint looks very sharp and clean. Excellent stuff!

  • Allan J Withers said 5 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Thanks Paul, a little more to do before I stick it together !!

  • Allan J Withers said 5 months ago:

    A bit more detail and the seats added !
