Hasegawa 1-48 Seaking HAR Mk.3 was created by Viperbuilder
Time to open my account in the Helicopter GB. Hasegawa's Seaking is a reasonably simple kit which can be enhanced with the edition of some aftermarket etch. I'll be sending away shortly for the HAR Mk.3 interior and exterior sets available from Eduard to help with this build. In the meantime its out of its sprues and I'm working on the window fit-out and lumps and bumps that need deleting and adding to the basic fuselage halves. There is a need to cut out a couple of spaces on the fuselage halves for windows at the rear and one window in the middle of the port side needs to be inserted and blanked off. The basic kit is the US Navy SH-3H so depending on which country's or service's Seaking you are modelling you will likely be doing a cutout for the side windows.


















The side windows are now in and the undercarriage sponsons glued together. At this point you have the option of opening the side door in the rear but you do so on the basis that you scratchbuild an interior. I think I'll pass on that exercise but opening the door for cockpit entry could be on the cards once my etch arrives.

Yes, start date is supposed to be 12 November not 12 December. It's a 12 month GB. One for Hadley to correct on the GB header.

I was wondering about that. Time to pull out my GB kit then.

Finally got myself some Eduard etch for the interior and exterior so I can progress this one over the Xmas break.









The kit has a nicely moulded consul for an SH-3H Seaking but I'll need to wipe this and add the HAR.3 consul instead, which is a bit different. It'll be good to blacken out that yellow plastic while I'm at it.

I'd say we're in for some real nice detail here.
