It's my understanding that a Petrel is just a Merlin, maybe with some Canadian avionics thrown in ---

OK so what do the characters on the tail say ?

Does look neat Martin, although I tend to agree with Jim  :angel:

I believe it "Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force"
Here it is finished at today's Bolton show


Any way. Another egg beater to show off.

RAF Seaking HCC-3. of 72sqn based in Cyprus as the personal mount of the Air Officer Commanding, Near East.
Fujimi HAR-3 kit with all they window options opened up, plus an extra one added for good measure. It has a full airliner seat set up inside, courtesy of a donated scrap Airfix Shorts Skyvan. (Cheers Joe).
This was meant to be a UK version of Marine One in a way. In this case it would be Kittyhawk one if it was carrying HMQ. I chickened out of trying the Royal flight scheme. So went for an AOC's personal ride. It will also be gaining drop tanks in due course
