Lynx model in 1/32 scale
|... continued from page 8.... and page 1|
2013, REVELL issued a different version of this kit (no. 04837), the HAS
is presented here between the HAS3 kit and the German mk.88A kit
among with some other "unidentified" sprues with parts.

REVELL SEA LYNX MK88a (KIT 04652)
REVELL HAS 3 (KIT 04837)
The HAS3 kit parts are in white and
|THESE ARE THE HAS3 NOSE DETAILS:
with the added ECM (?) fairing 109+110.
Looking at photographes, for Dutch
Lynxes such as the SH-14D, the nose looks different. The kit parts
look a bit too pointy.
Lynxes were fitted with various noses
with different shapes. Also, many variations are seen on add-ons like FLIR
turrets, fairings, ECM stubs etc.
OK, if you want to make a Dutch Lynx like the SH-14D, what is the best approach?
Buy the Revell HAS3 Lynx kit (KIT 04837). If you are happy with the HAS 3 kit nose, leave as is. You need than to adapt the main gear fairings/stubs and modify the main instrument panel. No hoist nor a sonar is in this kit. But that is a configuration that was sometimes operational on real MLD Lynxes.
If you want a (yes, only slightly different) Dutch Lynx nose and parts for the simple main gear fairings, also buy my home made conversion set.
If you want an interior with sonar
equipment, console and operator seat, get ALSO the other kit Mk.88a. But
please note that the German sonar interior is DIFFERENT than the one used
in the Dutch Lynxes but the parts are handy for a conversion. This kit
will give you also the SH-14D main instrument panel. You also get the (not
in the instructions mentioned) hoist parts. But you still need to adapt
the main gear fairings/stubs.
STEPs 1, 2, 3: follow instructions
That completes the overall step-by-step
|On my previous pages with the Building
report on the SH-14D, I used the first issued Revell Mk.88a kit.
On those building pages suggestions are made how this kit can be made in combination with my home made conversion set for a better nose and main gear fairings/stubs.
