Decided to build the HMA.8 from crosskitting the HAS.3 & Mk.88 kits. The Mk.88 had an extra sprue to enable the HMA.8 build. Awaiting some paint for the interior. debating weather to get the etched sets for this. Anyway, here goes so far

This should be impressive in 1:32. The Lynx gets very little attention on my side of the pond. Will enjoy seeing this go together.

If there is a colour etch available for the very visible cockpit then I would go for it as the plastic looks very basic.

I built one of these 1/32 monsters a couple of years back. It's an excellent kit, but lacking in moulded detail. To save space and hassle, I used the Scale Warships folded rotor hub set as I didn't fancy the task of making sure the main blades are perfectly horizontal. Plenty of scope for improvements, but it's a nice kit out of the box.

It is a great kit, I made one last year, must admit I just used what was in the box.

That 'pit is par excellent and doesn't need any colour etch. Were the seats really that red?

Some later Lynx had grey coloured cushion covers, but that dayglo isn't far off the real colour Del!

A bit more done. Not made my mind up weather to fold the tail rotor pylon yet. If I do, I need to add a little extra detail by the way of cables between to boom and pylon.

I get the impression that with all your tail work it will be folded.

Thanks chaps. The tail boom and pylon bulkheads have to be fitted for either spread or folded Del, only work here is painting the interior of the boom and pylon. I have now got the main rotor fold set, so will probably fold the tail as well.
