    Username: Vic Balshaw
    First name: Vic
    Category: Judge – Non competing
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Hasegawa kit No 70-201
    Model Type: Sikorsky Sea King HAS 3H converted to a Westland Sea King Mk 50 with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) as seen on its final decommissioning flight via Sydney and Canberra and then onto Nowra where it will join the Naval Aviation Museum.

    Extras: Just a few. Airwaves 48 089 Resin Sand Filter Box. Airwaves Resin Main Troop Door Open. Aussie Decals A48-007 Decal set. Eduard ED48 408 PE Interior detail set. Eduard ED48 012 PE External detail set. Eduard EX401 Canopy mask. Plane Bits 48-010 Resin Aussie conversion.

    My sincere thanks also to you all for your support, encouraging comments and snippets of help and a special thanks to me old friend "Old Bill" for the special low profile decals without which this model would have lacked that final correct look.
