Scalemodel66 Hi Gareth, do you still have this decal sheet, as I cant find it anywhere & would you spare the decals for the SAR wessex for Ark Royal 1970. . As I'm looking to build it & would love to have the decals for the wessex circa 1970.
I could give u the details of my address if you would be kind enough to send them to me.
Kind regards Stuart Avery.

Michael Hickey Watching this one with great interest, when building her watch out for the engine cowl fit to the forward fuselage, I had to deal with a huge step when I built mine.
20. October 2018, 01:09
Kent Strickland Thanks, I have heard that before. It may be a while before I kick off but certainly glad to have you on board.

Regards,
Kent
20. October 2018, 02:49
Michael Hickey No worries Kent, from memory everything else is pretty good, unless you want the canopies open. Then you have to tinkle with it a bit.

Alex looks nice! Any problems with it? It could be my next one.
8. February 2014, 07:12
Bill Gilman No problems, Alex, the build was uneventful. One thing to watch out for is that the tolerances of fit are very tight. Some parts may dry-fit together perfectly, and then have some problems after paint. The fit of the cockpit floor/consoles inside the fuselage was this way. You just need to remove some paint in some areas and it's good. The Eduard PE sets really dress this up, and since the kit has no ordnance, I think I got the torpedoes and sonobuoys from FAA Models. I have pictures of the weapons in this album:

Bill Gilman Hi Bernd,

Thank you! I don't recall any fit problems, but the self-adhesive didn't adhere very well. Every panel got some superglue to make sure it stayed on!
