MRC Helicopter 2014 Global Contest Entry
Airfix 1/48 Westland G-LYNX A009
Model by René Zass, Germany
I would like to enter my model of the Westland G-LYNX which holds the (official) absolute speed record for helicopters since 1986. The model is based on the Airfix Westland Lynx Army AH-7 in 1:48, Kitnumber: A09101 and the Belcherbits conversion set which includes resin parts (exhausts were drilled out and turbin fans scratchbuild - though these can only be seen with a flashlight) and decals (Rescue arrows and yellow stripes on the skids are missing and had to be custom made, some Airfix decals had to be used too). The port overhead window had to be scratched just as the aerodynamic coamings on the rotor head and other small parts.
