Felix Troschier A Royal Navy version is considered by ROG, but I guess we have to wait. the rigid tail has to be changed, a new nose had to be done, another port side sliding door is needed (among other changes). The only way to do it is to add another additional sprue with replacement parts.
Or this field will be left over for the aftermarket industry with big resin bits...$$$

Gino Quintiliani What would need to be added/deleted/changed to make it a British Army version?

Felix Troschier depends on which Army version you would like top build. AH.1, AH.7, AH.9, AH.9A? I'm not an expert on the Lynx, but the Revell's aircraft product manager said that there are so many non-obvious differences between Army and Sea Lynxes and therefore this is a sophisticated matter. It is related to panel/rivet structure and many other things.

Tony Cooke Gino, having just completed a build of the test shot, I can tell you it will be a simple conversion to AH7. The nose profile of the Mk88A is very similar to the AH7 with only minor mods required on the nose bay doors. The tail is the non folding variety so that is perfect. Only other bits youll need to fabricate are skids and a full instrument panel. Very easy at this scale. To my mind, if Revell are good to their word and also release a HAS3, you can 'mix n match' various parts to make any version of Lynx. Just need a good supply of decals to support it.

Gino Quintiliani Thanks Tony. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about the Lynx. I just know I wouldn't want a Naval version. I like how the the Army versions look better.
I may have to look you up to do the conversion...some day....
Tony Cooke I recieved the test shot about three weeks ago and have now completed it. I will echo your comments that it is a fantastic kit and the final version will be superb! Will post some photos of the finished kit soon.
