Airfix has really done a spectacular job with its newly tooled 1/48 scale Westland Lynx Mk.88A/HMA8/Mk.90B. The plastic model kit comprises six sprues: one clear, five molded in light blue styrene. You can build three different versions: counter-piracy, air/sea rescue, and anti-surface warfare.


There are three sets of Cartograf decals, too: German navy, Royal Navy, and Danish naval air squadrons. The decals are thin and in perfect register (par for Cartograf).
