In the real world Westlands produced 13 Lynx prototypes.
In my world they (Westlands) also produced a prototype for the R.A.F Lynx H.T.1.
This Lynx ,XX152 appeared in public just once at the 1974 SBAC show,just before the R.A.F order is cut and it then became another of the A.A.C prototypes.
Here's what it may have looked like.
All C+C welcome.

That is a very nice clean build there, and the lynx suits those colours to a tee  :thumbsup:

Nice model, Bacofoil.
In the real world the Lynx HT.3 was proposed, planned (and I think ordered), but subsequently cancelled.  Don't believe the Wikipedia page regarding the HT.1!  especially as the page contradicts itself!!

That's very smart - I like these "nearly-really" prototypes, not least because they are prime JMN-folling fodder: nice one!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That's lovely. :wub:  Hobby Boss Kit?
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Ah, I'd forgotten about that one.  I remember eyeing that in a news agents window for ages as a kid & when I finally saved my pocket money to buy it, it had gone!

Aye it does look rather good, kind of shame that Hobbyboss havent seen fit to produce the Army variants as would be nice to see later in service types  ;D

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.
