S& M Models introduces our next full injection moulded kit the 1/72nd scale Bristol Sycamore Helicopter in 3 issues.

The aircraft was used in many roles by the Royal Air Force and was widely exported. Civil versions were used by BEA and for fire fighting in Europe. We believe this is the first 1/72 scale injection moulded kit ever produced of the Sycamore.

Many thanks to Airfix Model World and Mike Grant for his in depth review of S&M Models 1/72 scale Hunting Provost Kit. Mike added his own decals to those supplied in the kit and the result is very attractive. He ends his article by saying “It’s perhaps unfair to draw comparisons with the benefit of 40 years hindsight but it’s safe to say that Matchbox’s Provost can finally be retired to the “nostalgia-only” shelf. S&M’s lovely kit supersedes it in virtually every respect and was a joy to build, with excellent fit and impressive detail. Sure the prop could do with replacement and the three part canopy requires care when assembling but the final model truly captures the sit and charm of the real aircraft”. Thanks Mike!
Also included in the magazine is a review of S&M Models MR, AEW and ELINT aircraft decal sheet on page 107.
