Westland Wessex HAS.1

Recommended Posts

Just finished today is my Westland Wessex HAS.1 XS873/523/PO built from the old Frog kit in 1/72. The kit was built OOB but with steel antennas on the fuselage and the tail. The wires were added using EZline, and the decals came from multiple sources. This helicopter came into service in 1966, and spent time based at the Portsmouth Naval Base, and now resides outside (and fading) at the East Midlands Aeropark, Leicestershire, England. The kit was easy enough to build, and then the work of course is trying to make it all better. I think I did a good job with it, but most of all I was able to learn more about the Wessex, which inspired me to look at more of them sometime in the modelling future.

Below is a few pictures of the kit, and of the machine today. This build adds to my growing collection of Royal Navy helicopters.

Enjoy/Cheers all
