1/72 SH-3 Seaking Spanish Navy

by Angel Mesa

--------------------

 

This model is made from the Revell kit Sea King MK.41 & Skua Missiles. No photo etched items or scratch, only closed one of the side windows not present in the Spanish version.
The model is painted with Gunze acrylic colors.
Decals are the most complicated part, actually there is not an specific decal sheet for the Spanish Seaking, so I had to use some different decal sheets. Here is the list of used decals:
 - Spanish cockades decal sheet from "series espanolas decals".
- For the rest of the decals I used the  Fireball Modelworks AH-1G Huey  Cobra  part 2  1/72  and  1/48,  also Tauromodel decal sheet reference 72-549 Italian helicopters.

The model represented here is on of the SH-3 Seaking callsign "Morsa" in the Spanish Navy. It represents the color scheme used in the 80s. Actually there are not SH-3 painted in this blue color, All Seaking are painted with OTAN grey colors.

Hope you like it.
