Hi I’m Pinglie,

Ex Wafu, mk4,5 & 6 Sea Kings ( bit of Wessex HU5 also) hence pinglie. Currently building 1/72 Sea Kings in Mk5 & 6 ASW, HU5 SAR. Junglie is complete.

I would like the 1/48 versions eventually, even have pics of the 195M and Lapads table. Glad they replaced it!

Hi there. Ex Gannet myself. Two tours.
Did the junglie bit too. Then, Wasp circuit until I transferred aircrew.
It’s good on ere so ‘dip’ your fingers and join in the fun.

Below
Two of 819's Mk5's in a car park in Fairley. The near SK had struck the whip aerial on a PAS boat and took off a fair few inches of composite blades. The second SK carried the maintenance team who had sod all to maintain as it was a road job for 04!!
I'm stood by the nose of 04.
