Westland Wessex

This is the Italeri as you can see. I think I will be doing the HC2 RAF version even though it's labelled as an HU5.
End box for those that are interested.

Looks like you'll be entering the world of wrap-around camo. Good luck!!

Hi Chris,
I have the Italeri 1/48 HU.5 to build.
Look forward to your hints and tips in building the baby brother.
Cheers,

I think you'll find it easier Kevin. I made some other Wessex from Italeri and they usually go together nicely.

Cabin and cockpit assembled and painted. Nose assembly ready to be mounted once the fuselage halves are together.

Most of the fuselage done. A little filling required.

The Italeri company seem to have sorted their chopper kits, I always liked them.

Another shade of grey on top. Green camouflage to go over this. Undersides are black (you might just be able to see this).
