Royal Navy Westland Lynx HAS.3 No. 829 NAS - HMS Endurance
This is the Hobby Boss 1:72nd scale kit
This particular aircraft supported research operations in the antarctic along with the ship HMS Endurance
The kit was built straight from the box following the instructions. The only "custom" additions I added were simulated seat belts made from Tamiya tape painted grey. I also removed the tail bumper because the Lynx didn't have one on this particular aircraft and I didn't add any ordinance (torpedoes or anti-ship missiles) as instructed because Antarctic treaties disallowed war shots on these helicopters.
