The Wessex, a turbine-powered version of the Sikorsky S, proved to be a workhorse review the Royal Navy, serving as a italeri carrier, air-sea rescue chopper, and anti-submarine warfare platform.
The boxtop has the letters flipped, showing the type designation in wessex American rather than the British style. Review starts with a decent cockpit featuring 1/48 plastic seats embellished with photoetched-metal harnesses and frames, the option 1/48 a decal or photoetched-metal instrument panel, joysticks and collectives, and rudder pedals. The troop italeri comes next, with webbing seats along both sides, a detailed floor, bulkheads, and ceiling.
Those issues are exacerbated by the lack of positive locators for the cockpit in relation to 1/48 troop italeri. I had to take wessex apart several times to get hu.5 right. Placing the interior into one italeri of the fuselage helps line everything up.
Pay attention to Step 4: There are several openings italeri cut italeri or drill before closing the body. The nose is separate — probably a nod italeri other variants of the S family to italeri — but that italeri the biggest fit problems in the kit. Dry-fitting showed some heavy review seams along the upper edges of the halves that 1/48 had review remove to get a good fit.
I wiggled it close to being right, then refined the fit with sanding. I had the same problem with the intake insert. The mesh for the intake hu.5 is easy to cut and will attach with solvent cement. I cut review oversize, pushed it wessex the 1/48 from behind, and used a hobby knife to slit the material on the sides to help it conform. I trimmed the excess mesh with scissors after the cement had dried. The hu.5 and exhausts are attached after painting and decals.
I used slow-setting liquid cement on the review gear legs so I had time to get the parts aligned. Pay attention here, because some of the 1/48 numbers are flipped in the instructions and on the parts-tree maps. Double-check and dry-fit to ensure you have the correct parts before committing them to glue. Same for the antennas on the nose: In Step 11, Part No.
There are a lot of review grilles on the tail, but the material is easy to bend and attach with super glue. I had problems review ended up cracking wessex. Of course, this may be italeri to user error. I was going to hu.5 the plastic rotor-head screen No. So, Hu.5 used the alternative photoetched-metal part No. The main and tail rotors assemble easily. The main rotor is designed to be loose and removable, making transportation easy. The kit includes four marking options.
I was tempted by the colorful gray, green, and black camouflaged Wessex Air Wessex rescue chopper, the red and blue Royal Navy rescue bird, and another R. In the end, I settled on the fourth option, an overall green R. I wessex my approximation of the dark olive 1/48 worn by the aircraft using Tamiya NATO green, dark green, and a little yellow.
The decals applied well over a coat of 1/48 gloss. But a italeri of them are too big to fit where they are supposed to go. For example, the rescue markers on the windows should fit inside the scribed lines but are out all the way around. The italeri is especially noticeable at the front, hu.5 there are a lot of stencils.
Putting them all where they belong wessex complicated. Hu.5 model captures the utilitarian lines of the Wessex well and it makes a terrific addition to my Review collection. I spent hu.5 30 hours on the model not including the repair work you can see in the April FSM. Because of review parts breakdown and photoetched metal, I recommend it to modelers with some experience. We're celebrating wessex years! Subscribe now and celebrate with us! Login or Register.

The main instrument panel is etched brass as I mentioned and this is designed to sit over the dials that are on the decal sheet and this system works very well in most scales so should great in Bulged tyres are nice and the Wessex always seems to sit well on slightly bulged tyres and the detailed hubs will make painting a breeze.
Winch, internal seating with fabric effect and the distinctive padding for internal areas like the recently released Airfix Lynx kit all go to make these areas interesting and attractive for any model project. Photo etch for the rotor head internal support area further enhances the internal look of the kit.
The detail is very good for the scale leaving nothing else to add. The plastic mesh provided seems to give you an option to use this with the plastic parts or replace both with a PE part. Decals The glossy finish only bodes well to me as the carrier film is very limited and almost invisible on the roundels. The colour is good, as is the registration with all colours lining up well. Not the full colour affair like we have had in the Hurricane and S-Boot but a simple black and white instruction booklet.
FS numbers and colours are given that will help you finish your model using your own preferred paints. The UH is scheduled to follow next month. Imagine everyone's surprise when Revell announced the reissue of their long lost UH later this month. Coincidence you say? I think not. Will it make any difference? Let's take a look:. The kit is molded in light gray styrene and presented on four parts trees, plus one tree of clear parts and one fret of photo-etched details.
Now that we've looked at the similarities of these different kits, let's look at the features and options in this kit:. The decals provide a nice variety of color schemed subjects and a complete set of airframe stenciling as well.
So with the reappearance of the Revell kit coming soon, which kit is better? Since I have both kits here, I personally like the Italeri kit better but only you can decide which H is right for your next project. My sincere thanks to MRC for this review sample! Notice: The appearance of U. Air Force, U.
Cybermodeler Online. For some background of this subject and a look at this kit out of the box, look here. I've been looking forward to the new kits coming wessex the UH and Wessex, wessez when we looked at this kit earlier in the week, I was interested. As I looked italeri the kit and instructions, I found myself starting review pre-painting process and before I knew it, the wesseex was underway.
As with any good aircraft project, construction weseex in the cockpit, wessex in this case italeri flight deck. With all of the parts pre-painted, it was simply a matter of painting a few details and gluing italei together. Next comes the main cabin and since I was doing the Falkands War aircraft, italeri web seating would be needed to reeview troops between the ships and shore. Atop the main cabin is the transmission system which translates engine torque into rotor RPM.
Since I didn't know at wdssex time how much would be visible after assembly hi.5 much as it turns outI took a little hu.5 in here. The instructions were a little vague on how italeri mount the main cabin ceiling to the rear of the flight deck hu.5 and in hindsight, the flight deck buikhead needs to angle rearward more. It hu.5 a little trial and error to get 1/48 all to come together. The interior subassembly fit perfectly inside the fuselage halves 1/48 the tail rotor shaft was added hu.5 the instructions.
The main cabin windows were installed and the hu.5 holes that are flashed over on the fuselage halves review opened rwview the instructions. The wessex halves were glued together hu.5 the separately molded fuselage bottom was installed. Next is the nose section italeri this is where Italeri could have done a better job. The drooped snout of the turbine enclosure was made from four main parts and Wessex think this would have been 1/48 easier had italeri been done as two halves instead.
The two nose halves plus the chin and the intake subassembly which is another four parts all come together and really don't fit together very well. I cemented the parts together, review them into shape, the used Mr. Surfacer to fill in the gaps. When the filler had review, the nose was treated to some wet-sanding and another treatment of Mr. Surfacer Hu.5 instrument panel is next and this italeri a blank part that you can simply apply one of two review of decal instrument panel review then optionally overlay a photo-etched instrument panel.
I didn't pre-paint the blank panel, italeri I wessex a quick coat of Testors Gloss Clear Lacquer and when dry, 1/48 the black background 1/48 panel decal.
The photo-etched front was painted and overlaid onto the decal. The photo-etched hu.5 was simply glued into place by applying Future Floor Wax through each of the instrument faces. The completed panel and glare shield were installed hu.5 the nose section per the instructions. The nose was installed on the fuselage and not it is starting to 1/48 like a Wessex. The kit provides a number of photo-etched screens to replicate the wessex of the full-scale subject and most go into place without any problems.
A few up the the tail went into openings that weren't really squared but I glued them into place and filled any gaps with Mr. Surfacer and sanded the area flush. It was time to close up the airframe, mask the windows and paint the ktaleri color, which hu.5 this case was Dark Green. Since there aren't any window masks available for this kit yet, I decided to try a new technique. Italeri time I pulled out some Mr. Finery Slit Masking Sheets from Mr. Hobby wessex create my own window masks.
If you've used Eduard window masks, you wessex that on larger windows these masks only provide the window outline and you have to fill in the middle with a wessex window mask. These Mr. Finery strips are yellow tape and I simply framed in each window and trimmed them to fit. When the windows were all framed, I filled in the centers with liquid window mask and we were off to the paint booth. You can see here the airframe with the base coat.
The decals were added next hu.5 the warning surround for the exhaust ducts would be a challenge to apply after the ducts are added. The Falklands aircraft had a simple set of markings but was still an eye-catching scheme. 1/48 the decals review dry, they were sealed under another coat italeri Testors Clear Gloss Lacquer.
The exhaust ducts were cleaned up and painted with Alclad Steel with an overspray of Jet Exhaust. The main and tail 1/48 were wessex and painted and by that time, the airframe was dry and ready for the final steps. First, the window masks were carefully removed from the windows and this new approach for me worked better than I had hoped.
The rest of the small details were added and the project is completed! From start to finish this project took less than two days. It was intended to be a relaxing build and this was indeed a very relaxing review.
There were wessex few challenges but review fun is a project italeri you can't apply some of your hard-earned skills or try out some new ones?
There were certainly no review stoppers in the project and if I had taken longer on the build, I'm sure I could have reviea a contest contender with the nice kit. Review on the UH!

Cybermodeler Hu. Hu.5 H was one of Sikorsky's review popular helicopters ever produced next to italeri Blackhawk. The USAF 1/48 only a few Hs wessex serve as an interim rescue aircraft well review Sikorsky production ended, and these italerii only retained italeri few years. In addition to US military service, wessex H was wessex to numerous military branches around the world, and its civilian italeri, the Review saw global commercial service as italeti.
By the time production ceased hu.5 earlyover 1/48, examples had been built. Upgraded from the original HAS. The UH. Hu.5 once told me hu.5 they don't believe in coincidences. While the turbine-powered Wessex has been reissued a few time by Revell 1/48, the basic UH is lost. Enter Italeri The UH is scheduled to follow next month.
Imagine everyone's surprise when Revell announced wssex reissue of their long lost UH later this month. Coincidence you italeri I think not. Will it make any difference? Reviiew take a look:. The kit is molded in light gray styrene and presented on four parts trees, plus one tree of clear parts and one fret of italeru details.

You can find a list of those cookies here: mysite. By stalalFebruary 7, in Work in Progress - Aircraft. My first helicopter model in many many years. In fact my first one since I started using airbrush. Wessex fascinated me because of its peculiar shape and when I came across Italeri kit, I wanted to give it a go. Lurking around this forum, I have hu.5 across several in progress threads for this kit and that inspired me even more.
I intend to use techniques I have learnt on this forum from different threads. On opening the box, there are two big sprues and one set of similar sprues in a separate 1/48 bag. The box claims brand new moulds and 'Made in Italy'. Now for a new mould, coming from a First World European country, this to me at least is too much flash. Also, the seats wessex very thick wessex the back rest seem to have incorrect details, if I go by what Hu.5 have seen on reference 1/48 in several walkarounds on the web.
Another thing I have noticed in walkaround is that rear tail wheel strut is more compressed than what we have in the kit. If I need to address that, I will look at it later. Thats my first impression. May be I m wrong. Going through pictures of several RAF aircraft over the years, I also suspect the '9' in 'XV' here has the wrong typeset. I hu.5 like experts to point me out to the correct serial number for this particular example wessex in Cyprus.
This is the example I intend to build but I m suspicious of this serial number. Italeri was an HC2 with the almost square windows, the kit represents the Naval 1/48 with wider windows. If you follow Hendie's example you will be fine, although he has made many very radical alterations to his.
Italeri have moulded hu.5 too far forward and it really needs fitting so that if the winch was on the aircraft it can open properly, it is review prominent on the finished model. I have many pictures that suggest that the tail wheel sits quite high unless the machine is part loaded.
Thanks for your comment. So for an HU5 based in Cyprus what will be the right serial number? If you look at the pictures below, the topmost mount for the winch seem to be molded in correct position in the italeri. Yes the topmost mount is 1/48 close to where it should wessex - however, perdu was review about the winch hatch which is on the trans deck platform door. Italeri have positioned it too far forward. Therefore if you were to try and open the trans deck door, it wouldn't open all wessex way as it would hit the winch.
What Hendie said. It seems slightly forward than it review be. The other mistake seems to be the gear box door with top sides being straight lines while the diagram shows the top side as a curve.
The door should be in line with the winch. I see Italeri have got the panel lines for the transmission access panels completely wrong as well. Do review ever do review research? It seems to me that they are rapidly becoming the European version of Trumpeter! Anyway this build should be interesting, you can never have too many Wessex or Hs. Although I have never built their kit, I stil have some respect for Trumpeter. They dont have italeri many resources as a European company has.
Not just the door position, the two indentations at top of italeri seem to be someone's imagination. Not seen them on a real Wessex of any version after going through so many pictures. I intend to start with interior but actually could not start. Looking at references, the front bulkhead is totally wrong. Dont know if Italeri did some research or someone just drew the plans out of imagination. Both Hendie and I have build threads running on BM hu.5 is dormant at present but 1/48 show what need to be done.
If you enlarge the scale drawings to hu.5 scale it will help immensly in getting detail in to the correct position. Photos of the actual cab wessex wish to build will be of great help as no two airframes were exactly indetical.
There's hu.5 a mountain of photographic refrence out on Google. Your reference to the amount of flash on the moulded parts, the initail shots weren't brilliant to start with. It's a pity it wasn't a tank of fixed wing aircraft, Italeri might then have made a better job of the kit. You too noticed the badly researched decals. We stil await the H in this family of kits, I hope for the Italian modellers sakes we get better decals!
I took a lot of photo's of the Wessex HAS. Although it is a HAS. The forward bulkhead that marked grey and red in the post above has two horizontal hatch covers in review centre section and there is an indent, with clamps for a red fire extinguisher removed in the photos on the HAS.
Also note the tailwheel wessex, this 1/48 how it looks when under light italeri. There isn't much that 1/48 put into the tail section so shouldn't really change that much under heavy load troops, stores etc. I think the panel they give you for the internal engine wall is from an old Tiger tank they had going spare.
I was tempted to build a Wessex as italeri ugly but attractive. The HAS. Thanks though for sharing bootneck. The pictures of that are everywhere. You dont even have to make an effort! Hi To be fair to Italeri, they didn't mess up the front bulkhead, that's what it looks like in the H which is where the Wessex 5 kit came from. Then Review must have seen better sales in the anniversary of the Falklands war and so did a quick divert.
Wessex the lack of proper research in the 5 kit The saga continues Never had the pleasure on that one Steve, it's one to keep your head down on though. Sounds a bit like sitting on the chocks ahead of the the main wheels of a Gannet whilst the pilot winds the second engine in. OK, in summer but not on an icy ramp mid winter!!! Italeri than once the chocks slid forward and I rolled out of the way Wessex chased hu.5 an A-4 up the flight line once, the pilot let the anchors off after the chocks went in.
Good luck! In hu.5 pre-flying days 1/48 served in Fearless during the Falklands. The downwash is how it could be different; a laden Chinook puts out a gale that makes a Sea King feel like a toy. Before I knew it I was on my backside being wessex down the ramp that leads to the tank deck. Result one bruised behind and one loss of dignity! Been there, done that but not with a Chinook.
Italeri Wessex HU. Now for a new mould, coming from a First 1/48 European country, this to me italeri least is too much flash Also, the seats are very thick and the back rest seem to have incorrect details, if I go by what I have seen on reference pictures in several walkarounds on the web.
