| Description

Held in extremely high regard by the British public, the distinctive yellow Search and Rescue Sea King HAR.3 helicopters of the Royal Air Force always seemed to be on hand when help was needed most.  Many sailors, climbers and holidaymakers owe their lives to the highly capable SAR crews of the RAF, who were ready to save lives at any time of day, or night and in all weather conditions.

As the final RAF Search and Rescue Sea Kings are finally withdrawn from service, many people will be left with fond memories of these high profile helicopters of mercy.  Often the star of many a high profile news report, the Sea Kings were always seen helping people who found themselves in difficult situations, which in many cases could actually be life threatening.  The sight of a bright yellow Sea King always served to reassure the public and even when conducting general patrol sorties over Britain’s beaches, the crew would always be certain of receiving some affectionate waves from the holidaymakers below.

As the handsome yellow Search & Rescue Sea Kings of the RAF have now sadly been retired, this new Airfix Starter Gift Set is a magnificent way to remember some of the best loved aircraft to take to Britain’s skies.

Lockdown project 1

A good reintroduction to scale modelling after a long absence. Enough of a challenge but also giving me confidence and the inclination to try something new. If I were to make it again I would also order some filler for when the fuselage did not quite come together for me. I'm happy with the paint. The version that arrived for me at two pots of yellow which were enough for a base and finish coat.

Enjoyed this starter kit during lockdown

Just started building Airfix again after many years due to lockdown and have to say what a starter kit to purchase, I found this kit interesting bit challenging but really enjoyed my time at home building it, would recommend to anyone who wants to start over again. Yellow paint looks awesome too !!
