Decals for:
  • decals were not supplied yet in the testshot
Strong points:
  • crisp detail
  • fully detaild interior
  • fully detailed dipping sonar gear
  • fully detaild sonar operator station
  • full detail for all cabin interior walls
  • optional M3M door gun
  • Sea Skua and Stingray torpedo ordonance
  • "value for money"
Weak points:
  • tooling is restricted to Mk.88A (only possible option from the kit would be a Danish Mk.90)
  • no option for Mk.88A with FLIR on nose
  • no option for marks with foldable tailfin
  • no optional parts for earlier marks
  • no weighed wheels
  • no rescue hoist included in the review sample (although obviously planned)
  • no folded main rotor option

Summary:

This kit is full of nicely represented details. The interior is a class of its own. Just add eletronic wiring to the sonar gear and thats it. Concerning the level of detail, this kit is one of the best helicopter kits I've ever seen. Unfortunately, the arrangement of parts in the sprues leaves only little option for correctly realized further versions. Compared to the recent Airfix release in 48 scale, this one is far ahead in detail and price-performance ratio. Combined with the usual high-quality decal sheet from Italy, this kit will be a masterpiece in the helicopter sector.
