Hi Troshi. I think you might find the Wessex HAS Mk3 from Italeri is the 72nd kit re-issued as per the pics on IPMS Deutscheland site and the pic of the box art as part of their Falklands anniversary edition. However with the new 48th scale kit, I would not rule out a new HAS Mk3 Wessex as the HU Mk5 kit is 80% ready.

I really want to know more about the Revell MD520N (doing the Profiline one at the moment and enjoying it).

It's a shame the "OH-6A" has the later-style windows as I don't believe we've ever had an accurate Cayuse in 1/72, but combining it with some high skids will make for some happy 500C/369HS builders...myself included!

Thanks for the info on the NOTAR. Too bad I missed the Profiline kit when it was available.



You can still get it. I got mine at the end of last year. link

Not overall impressed with them but I got it.
