I always say the Wessex is so ugly it starts to be beautiful again...

But 18 builds at a time - that's a bit unhealthy, at least feels a bit like a full time job.

Anyhow - good luck with your project, glad to see you rolling again

Helo H-34
I just finished this HUS-1G USCG helicopter today

I know this is an old (6 years!) thread,  but I found it while researching for a build of an H-34 in USCG colors...   

I'm hoping John can fix the link to his image from back then......?

I just purchased two Italieri UH-34D kits (two because I'm a butterfingers who will inevitablybreak/lose/destroy some vital piece before I'm finished), and was disappointed to learn that they both have the bent landing gear. This thread isn't very active at this time, so before I go further I'd like to know if any additional information about the straight, three-leg landing gear has come about. Perhaps there are some after-market landing gears available?

 

 

 

On the bench: 1/72 Grumman Avenger being kitbashed as a U.S. Forest Service tanker; a diorama to illustrate the crash of a Beech T-34B Mentor which I survived in 1962 (I'm using Minicraft's 1/48 model of the Mentor), and a Pegasus model of the submarine Nautilus of 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas fame.

Hi everyone ,

Sorry I haven't been on the forum pages very much these past couple of years .

I don't know why the images of the builds don't show through anymore , that's a bit disappointing .

Anyway I still have all the photo's I took of my H-34 builds and progress build pic's on a USB stick . I'm happy to upload any of the photos if anyone wants to view a particular image . 

I'm still collecting H-34 kits but just haven't built any for quite a while or finished some of the already started kits . 

I'll search through my file as to the USCG color scheme , I seem to recall I may have mixed two of the Gunze acrylic paints together . I will try and find out in the next day or so .

Also the V style landing gear that Italeri provide in some of their 1/72 kits are still hard to come by but back in July of this year , I saw a review of Italeri's 1/72 HSS-1 Seabat kit number 1417 . It has the V style landing gear . I purchased two for my collection

Thanks for keeping this topic active

John .

Hi everyone 

I'm back building model kits again after a 8 year break .

I have a nice room set up at the back of the garage , so I wanted to continue on with my fleet of H-34's / wessex helicopters

Most of the kits I had started building about 8 years ago , so there not far from masking and painting 

I'm going with these finished colour schemes and markings

I hope its okay to resurrect an old post .
