I probably won't have it built in time for the contest, but it's under way. I've already cleared off the myriad of simulated rivets, and thinned the trailing edges somewhat. The next project is to detail the cockpit (there aren't even rudder pedals!) and scratch an interior.
I've also taken a first stab at a history. It'll be a COD bird for the Invincibles, but I also had to rewrite history to have Rotodynes in service in the 1970s.
How about some recommendations for a name; what would the RN/RFA have called this bird?
And would they have left the windows, or blocked off most of them?
I'm also looking for a second model, to become a Royal Marine assault ship: chin turret, ball-socket mounted guns in the after fuselage, under wing rocket packs.
