I stumbled across this photo ages ago, showing a Sea King delivering beer to one of the carriers, probably Invincible, during the Falklands War.
Members at All Scale Modeller forum helped me determine it was a HAS.5 and even which airframe, and I had another go at using Prop Blur products to replace the main rotors and anti-torque rotors. I used the AFV Club 1/144 SH-3A/D kit which is close enough at this scale. The radome is the wrong shape, being more like a HAS.3, so I just gave it a going over with a sanding stick to make it look a bit more 'dumpy'. Decals couldn't be found so these are a combination of home printed, spares, and the sheet for a Wessex HAS.3 I have. Not sure how I'm going to build that one now! Figures are a combination of an old Preiser set, and some 3D printed ones I found online. I'd like to have made them a bit more dynamic but modding figures is hard enough, let alone at 1/144 scale.
The strop / lifting cables join / junction is a bit scruffy but most viewers will see it from above. If I get the inclination I might go back an dress it up with some fine wire. The beer barrels and pallets are 3D printed products and obviously a bit over sized but have a nice bit of detail for such small objects.
Thanks for looking in,
Gareth (Who's just realised he hasn't painted the joints on the rear cable and the windscreen wipers!)
