Progress has been slow for a while, built another kit in between, but it picked up again. On the home stretch, with all the final bits and pieces to be installed. Should have lightened the gray a bit, the gloss coat made it much darker than intended. Oh well...
Finally completed! Home printed decals went on well, regrettably some slight silvering around the edges. Used the kits decals for the tail rotor, which were thick and difficult to install. Assembled the main rotor and finished off with installing wheels, rotors and cabin gun. The end result is not without blemishes, but I am quite happy with it. The Airfix Seasprite is a nice kit to build, with and without conversion, I can recommend it to anyone.
