We haven't had a chopper for a bit and before I get to far advanced I will share some of the work that I have done so far.
And the reason I have labelled as a matchbox build I because I will be using only the matchbox parts to make the original RAF machine I do have some appropriate decals on order.
Here's what it looks like so far up until the landing gear goes on.P1050150.JPGP1050147.JPGP1050148.JPGP1050151.JPGP1050154.JPGP1050156.JPG

This one has been sitting on the shelf of doom for far too long so it's time to drag it off and restart.
As I wanted to do the original RAF version and have been unable to source some original decals or replacements.
So I will be doing the out of the box version and have already replaced the undercarriage bay's and added some more detail on the nose.20190614_182747.jpg20190614_182800.jpg20190614_182809.jpg

Just put the engine's in but I won't be going with them on show hence only half painted and I have the rear half of the engine covers on but they will need a bit of work.20190616_171403.jpg20190616_171559.jpg

I have finished this one and the lack of updates is due to having another project on the way and this was just taking up much needed space.
