So, this will finish off my collection of Wesssesssexxsxess and they'll all four have been built for MMM Group Builds. This will be mostly SFTB with the rotor fold accessory seen in one of the phots. Plain Green Drab airframe seen in the South Atlantic in 1982.

Far better quality than the old Revell one and a nice review, I'm looking forward to this.

Slow start while I finish off some other projects. Just the interior colouring and a bit of drilling to accept some fuselage fittings. This is my second HU.5 and the fourth Italeri Wessex I've built so it's just going through the motions right now. The interior will be given some bare weathering and drybrushing but otherwise there will be no other detail, apart from the cabin seats.

That's nice. I keep thinking, it's about time I added some whirlybirds to my collection, and one of these in RAF Rescue yellow would look good!

Slow but steady going. For the superdetailer there's plenty of room for extra work here, and it can be seen through the open side canopies and an opened cabin sliding door. On this occasion it's strictly SFTB and what's there is going to be good enough for me.

A good start. I have daily access to a Wessex HU.5 if you could use photos of specific parts*.


* That's assuming it has the specific part fitted!

Thanks for the offer but not only do I have a stack of references, I've a fair library of my own personal phots - the Wessex was one of my favourite aircraft and I had the good fortune to encounter them on the ships I was on with a degree of frequency.

The only thing I'm not 100% totally clear on in the over-the-counter colour for the green. I know the BS reference for it, but not what it translates to in terms of Humbrol or whatever.

Self-explanatory really. Not too much effort and it begins to look like a Wessex.

It doesn't take long for a Wessex shape to emerge from the parts. Looking good.
