(Aeroclub - Nr. K032)
This 1/72 Saro. Skeeter from Aeroclub is a multimedia kit with plastic, white metal parts and a vacuform canopy. There is no plan to build it instead you have some written instructions, which means that you need to have good reference on this little machine.
The plastic parts (two halves fuselage and the three rotor blades) are well moulded with recessed panel lines.
Aeroclub provides decals for two options, a British AOP 12 in Dark earth/Dark green coded XM 555 (preserved example you can find pics of her on airliners.net), and a German Mk 50 in the same camo pattern coded PC+119.
To conclude, this kit is very attractive, at least for the subject, IMHO it will require some extra work, particularly under the belly where the engine is visible. But it will be a nice addition on a display side by side for example with a UH-12 and a TH 55.
