Very nice Andy.

Good to see you're keeping busy.

Is the Sea King the Revell kit?

Sea King is the Airfix kit, and it's not a very good one. SU-27 is Revell, picked it up for 6.99 in my local model zone.

What are you doing dabbling in 72 scale Lucky - are you ill?

Hi Andy.

I thought the Sea King was an Airfix one. Have you seen the excellent Revell kit mate. The German version has the same radome as the RAF rescue one.

Thanks for the heads up. Seaking is a favourite, and i need a current Plane/Helo to build for the Mark Sharpe campaign. I'll try to find one.

Cheers Again

Andy I do sometimes come over all weird and jump up a scale to 1/72 after all thats where I started and I do have a big stash still with the odd addition still joining it like that F-14 you saw last night at the meet.

Now must only buy Jaguar's in 1/72, oh and one in 1/48:|

Very nice Andy, I particularly like the Seaking I have the Hasegawa kit in 1/48 with PE for a SAR bird and I must build it one day (had it for years).

Which kit is the Su 27? I still have the Hasegawa 1/72 scale kit, from when I used to build 1/72 scale modern aircraft. And seeing your Harrier really makes me want to build one, in a larger scale

A merry Christmas to you mate, and have a great new year

Mal

P.S. Just re-read the thread and I see that the Su 27 is by Revell, is it a re-box of the Hasegawa kit?

Mal.

Not sure if this is a rebox. The box says made in Japan, and it has a distinct Hasegawa feel to it. Whoever made it in the first place it has been a joy to make compared to the Airfix Seaking (bad fit everywhere) and the Italieri FRS1 Harrier (bad fit and worse instructions)

Happy new year

Andy

I've finished the SU-27, in time for the finish of the campaign thanks to an extension.






If the weather holds i'll get good photos tomorrow.

Thanks for the kind comments Derek.

The weather was good enough this morning to take final photos as promised.

Nice one Andy!
That looks really good
Will the Sea King be following on shortly, as it looks almost finished in the earlier photos.

Looking good as always Andy, I just hope I can get some bench time in soon so i can get a few of my builds finished to give me room to start my poles apart.

An impressive line up Andy, the Su 27 sure is an impressive bird and the Sea King always looks good in the ASR yellow scheme. I really must dig my 1/48 kit out.

The flanker looks great, if I ever do a full "dark side" build, I think it may well be one of those.

Probably not the Sea King, it looks better in photos than real life, but the Flanker - Yes. Either on Bulldogs or SE London stand - depends who has space.
