Sea King AEW.2 Cyber Hobby Plastic Model
To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Falklands War Cyber Hobby have created a second 1/72 scale kit of the Sea King helicopter.
Modelers enthusiastically received the brand new Westland WS-61 Sea King HC.4 troop-carrying variant, and that Cyber-Hobby item proved an instant hit. This second kit depicts the rare airborne early warning AEW.2 helicopter.
Combat in the Falklands War revealed an AEW gap in the capability of the Royal Navy (RN), and even while the conflict was under way, Westland began converting two Sea King HAS.2 helicopters in May 1982.
This new helicopter in 1/72 scale makes use of elements of the Cyber-Hobby HC.4, but it features a number of newly tooled parts in order to portray the AEW.2 version. One obvious example is the radar radome.
The plastic model is well designed and cleverly engineered to induce maximum modeling enjoyment. The fuselage is correctly proportioned and the foldable rotor blades are made to true scale thickness too.
With appropriate decal markings from Cartograf, this Sea King AEW.2 is ready to search for the approach of the enemy!
