Cargo/passenger compartment Wessex HU.5

 

In the Manston Airfield Museum, one can find a Wessex HU.5 in HC.2 RAF Rescue colours. Anticipating the Fly Models 1/32 Wessex HU.5, I decided to take some shots of the cargo/passenger compartment. Not wanting to dig through the kit on my motorbike to get to my Nikon, I once again used my iPhone to take the pics....

 

The front bulkhead, the pilots' seats are located in the "void" above:

The right sidewall in front of the sliding door. Two seats and the hoist controls:

The right sidewall aft of the sliding door:

The ceiling above the sliding door:

The rear bulkhead:

The ceiling of the compartment. Above the soundproofing is the gearbox of the main rotor and the shaft driving the tail rotor. The angled metal part on the right encloses the main shaft from the engines to the main rotor gearbox.

I hope these pics are some use to you when building the 1/48 Italeri or 1/32 Fly Junglie Wessex!

 

Cheers,

Erik.
