Love the AEW chopper ! That kind of stuff always gets me thinking...great work on the DC-5 too, such a neat looking aeroplane. Reminds me of a Botha.

And that Chinook looks pretty thirsty !

Still on the Roterey wing kick......................



FIGAS (Falkland Island Government Air Service) Sikorsky UH-34T. One of two captured H-34's pressed into service with FIGAS almost as soon as the ink was dry on the surrender documents. Flown out to Hermes by Wessex pilots and repainted with a stange mix of shades to make this rather bright scheme. They were used for a number of years and were finaly sold to American warbird collectors in 1990.
Of course the Argintine never had or deployed any rebuilt UH-34s................The real FIGAS captured chopper with this reg was a UH-1D.



Prior to gaining their licence to build what we now know as the Wessex, Westland started off building the Seahorse for the Royal Navy. This one is a Westland Seahorse HAS-3 in the standard ASW scheme of its time. Most were recycled through the factory to Wessex standard during the mid 1970's, but some lingered on into the 80's with reserve and training units.

Both are the Italeri kits. The UH-34 has the turbo conversopn From Mel Bromley's S&M resin range. The SeaHorse HAS-3 is the Italeri Wessex HAS-3 with the spare nose off the UH-34 ;D

Clever 'mix and match' pair there OGL, I like them.  :thumbsup: :bow:

Will they appear at Cosford?
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! :)
