A Cougar bird landing on the RG V about 330 kms East of Halifax. We were doing seismic on the supply boat MV Venture Sea.

I think the Wessex cockpit on the Sea King hull works best, the lower one of the two.

That might be worth trying in plastic too, I've got 2-3 Airfix Sea Kings and a box full of the old FROG Wessexes.
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! :)

i was kinda thinking on a new project, an SH-3J Super Sea King, a military naval version of the S-61T Triton.

but i was wondering, if i would to replace the Rolls Royce Gnome engines, from the British Westland versions, with a pair of Turbomeca Makila 1A1 engines (like those done in the Puma HC.2) would there need to be any kind of external modifications?
on the bench:

-all kinds of things.

I think the Malika is quite a bit longer than the Gnome, so they'd protrude over the top of the cab.
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.

What it needs is the Wessex cockpit on the Sea King fuselage, but with the turbines up top behind the cockpit allowing a clamshell nose door...

And if you're adventurous make it a synchropter since cargo would come and go from the front end  :wacko:

The top one reminds me of the Westland Westminster.
But you'd probably have to use 1/48 Sea King and Wessex's which might prove a 'tad' expensive :rolleyes:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks
