Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Camouflage-wise, I'd be inclined to paint it brick red with lots of little grey rectangles...
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

At its size you can rather paint a complete small village on its flanks...  ;D

With a meadow on the top side complete with grazing cattle, a babbling brook and a milkmaid.

Time for something a little smaller than the Ratte. A lot smaller!

And in keeping with RAF 100...............................

Introducing the Westland Puma HAR mk-2, of D flight 202 sqn. RAF Lossimouth 1994.

As you can see some scrote from the Fleet Air Arm has defaced the markings on the cabin door.................................

This one started as a little light work to keep me occupied while displaying at the Small space sci fi model show at the start of July.
The next pic shows how far I got with it while at the show.

As you can see its an old Airfix kit with a resin/white metal conversion set from Whirlybird.

Here it is a few days later at the local model club meet.

The Intakes and sand filters are resin clones of the parts in the Heller boxing of the Airfix kit. The winch is from an Italeri Couger kit (the Swedish SAR boxing).
Yes, that is a super Puma in the back ground more on that when its finished................
The basic configuration for this build is the same as the now retired Portuguese SAR Puma's

And once its had a few hours in the spray booth.

Paint wise, the Yellow is CJ aerosols BS 365 Golden yellow (Aka RAF SAR Yellow), the black is Halford satin black primer, the rest is mainly Lifecolor acrylics.

This how she appeared after a short session at work on Sunday 22nd.


And now once the decals are on..............



The decals came from a new Xtradecal Seaking sheet. It keeps the Seaking HAR-2 serial as well, as if the RAF went for Puma's for the SAR role they wouldn't have had the Seakings...................
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Nice one OGL, that looks the part very well.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yes still on the helicopters. they are easier to move around gate houses when working on them on Nights or weekend shifts.
I always hope for the best.
