Based on the 1/72 Italeri EH-101 Merlin HAS.1 kit, I have added the radome from the Freightdog Sea King AEW deflated radome and improvised. Hataka acrylic paint with USMarines decals

Could vibrate a bit............  ;D ;)
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! :)

It's a well known fact that helicopters do not fly, they just vibrate so much the earth rejects them!
