Matthew Robeson looks inside the new Cyber-Hobby kit of the Westland Sea King. This HC.4 version is to honor the 30th anniversary of the Falkland Island''s war in 1982.

Matt,
Very nice review. I appreciate how you cut to the chase on what we might find in the box that we perhaps might not expect; the drooping blades, exceptional rivet work, ultra clear plastic parts. If I read to many of your reviews I might be tempted toward the dark side!!

Cheers,
Rick

The kit albeit quite detailed the amount of inaccurate parts is unbelievable!!! The A/C shown on the lid did not have half of the equipment on it when it went to war in the South Atlantic, the interior is totally incorrect including seat locations, numbers, size. The forward part of the cabin has been copied from possibly an ASW variant. The kit comes with a paint list but no paint instructions and finally the instructions leaflet identify the A/C from a RN squadron which disbanded in the 1960's!!!! This is a lot of money for a historic A/C in a fixed point in time. Sorry - this kit is pants!
