| 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As the final RAF Search and Rescue Sea Kings are finally withdrawn from service, many people will be left with fond memories of these high profile helicopters of mercy.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.

Would I be able to purchase the decal sheet for the HC. 4 separately? Cheers

I'm sure 596 is a Mk3 Sea King so why does the drawing show a Mk3A aerial fit?

The 3D CAD rendering shows the engines with the 'barn door' type filter but the colour line drawings show the box type. Will there be an option for building the model with either type?

Is this a new tool or is the model a rehash of previous Sea King issues?

Excellent model

This is an excellent model - it's very detailed and is overall a good fit (other than for the ceiling / rooftop and a few other bits, where I felt the kit designers were being a bit too clever) Definitely not suitable for young modellers Overall highly recommended!

1/72 Airfix Westland Seaking Har 3

The level of detail on this kit is crisp and sharp way ahead of what I would normally expect from a 1/72 kit. Far superior to the older tooling and it's a great kit for children or if you're new to modeling. I also believe experienced modeler would also find enjoyment in building this kit. Unfortunately you only get one marking option in this kit. I personally believe Airfix has missed a trick by not offering other Sqn markings something that could easily be rectified in an updated release. After building this particular model I found the kit went together easily and without any issues and the clear parts had no flaws in them. Would defintly recommend this model to all age groups!!
