Puma HC-1 Matchbox 1:32nd scale.

The kit dates back to the early 80s, and has some nice features, but lacks the refinement of newer kits.
It is still a very good basis to work on.
The detail added is all from scratch, as no after market, except for white metal undercarriage, exists.
Decals are the kits, salvaged as the protective sheet of grease proof paper had stuck to them.
Xtracolor enamels were used for the colour scheme, which is how the Pumas were painted when first in RAF service before all the upgrades that led the airframe to be covered in all those extra bits.
Thanks for looking,
