Yes, I do like the interior and the pit.  It shows quite a bit of life.    

I was wanting to do a Sea King in 1/48, but it's my understanding that the Hasegawa kit doesn't have an interior.  I'll consider the Airfix kit in 1/72.

Nice, been thinking about getting this kit, i want to do one based in the falklands.

Can't wait to see more.

And yes, they are very dirty inside, i can vouch for that.
