Westland Sea King HAR Mk.3

Before aftermarket pieces were available for the HAR3 I decided to do one following Alan Hall's Conversion Topics as set forth in the March, 1979 issue of "Scale Aircraft Modelling." Nothing was too difficult including the addition of a sixth tail rotor blade and cutting an old display stand in half to provide the domed windows for the observer. Various lump and aerials completed the fitting. Transfers came from Model Decal sheet #57 and spares to replicate XZ587 at the time of its delivery to the Seaking Training Unit at RNAS Culdrose. Period photos show that the guard in front of the air intakes had not yet been fitted. An internet search today showed that XZ587 was in use as recently as April, 2010, and it appears as clean today as when it was first delivered althoough I know it has had several repaints and has served with at least three squadrons.
