1/72 Seaking MK.41

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Since there's yet a helicopter in the GB, I'm building the Marineflieger Seaking Mk.41.. this will be OOB build.

Construction start with the cockpit and cabin area..

Revell provide the usual paint instructions referring their own line of paint, which is rarely available here, so I have to convert it using what we have here based on conversion app I have, and walkaround from the internet.

Really stunning work on the interior - I especially like the overhead-panel!

Hi,

Thank you for the kind words, guys... :wave:

So far...

I closed up the fuselage halves, preshade, and sprayed the main camouflage pattern...

It's been a while since the last time I paint camouflage, and actually don't really like how it turned out on this sea king. And the colour (especially the green) seemed a bit off from reference I saw, too...

So based on those reason, I think I will clear coat the model and wash it with some black/grey wash and see if it could help to tone the color a bit and blend it more, before I paint the area of "special scheme" section (half-front of the aircraft).

Beside, from the reference, I see the camouflaged section of the aircraft is a little more weathered than the "special-scheme" section.

Looks quite good to me! The scheme of the Marineflieger Seakings is usually quite weathered and the different "shades of grey" come out different on every individual bird. I like the contrast of the colors and the fact that you didn´t blend them too much into each other!

Yes... and it's just lovely isn't it? :thumbsup2:

The problem is I used blue-tac to mask the camouflage pattern, and the edges between the color is not uniformed. Some are hard-edges while some are too "feathered". I think I screwed up with the angle of the airbrush pen and the blue-tac diameter.

Hi,

last few days I finish weathering the camouflaged area with tamiya enamel, and paint the blue side...

Followed by decals with the help of a lot decal softener, and few touch ups here and there... Especially the eagle part.

A couple coats of future followed..

Terima kasih, Tobi! Cheers, :beer4:

Well, unfortunately I'm still on-site several miles off-shore until mid July. So, No alcohol allowed....

and it's also prevent me to 100% finish this build right now. 

So I will continue to wash the main fuselage, while assemble the Main and tail rotor parts, and packed it all as sub assemblies when I go home later.

All the tiny bits and rigging will have to wait until I got home.

Sorry, this is propably too late, but I found some old pictures (and poorly taken...) from 2003 when I visited the SAR-meet in Kiel where this seaking was part of the show.

Thanks HAJO,

Nice pictures indeed... 

It seemed like they sometimes change the antenna and sensors. Look a little bit different with my references...
