MRC Helicopter 2014 Global Contest Entry
Hasegawa 1/48 SH-3 Sea King A039
Model by Ermanno Bonafin, Italy
Here my Sea King in the colors of the HS-4 on the USS Hornet 1969. This particular helicopter was employed for the astronaut's recovery on the Apollo missions, so I needed to scratch build two small TV antennas installed on this chopper. Also the windshield wipers were scratch built, as the two supplied in the kit were too small. I add also Eduard PE set and Montex mask. I used Gunze acrylic and Vallejo Satin for the final coat. This time I tried the Flory Models Pro¬Modeller washes and the result is very good.
