Airfix Westland Scout by Paul Bradley

Another of Airfix’s simple helicopter kits, this is a Series 1 effort from the 1960s containing 44 parts, plus a small decal sheet. The interior is basic, but does include a collective stick for the pilot – rather rare for a helicopter kit of this vintage! The engine is rather crude and will need a lot of pipework added to make it look like a convincing replica of the original. The small decal sheet offers two options, one for a British Army machine, while the other is one operated by Jordan. Like many of its stablemates, this kit is simple, but has all the necessary shapes and lines for a nice model to be built with a little effort.
