| Description

Westland Lynx HAS 3 ICE XZ238 (434/EE) is one of a number of helicopters, which have served on board Antarctic survey and ice patrol vessel HMS Endurance, in particularly challenging conditions.  For this specific role, some of the equipment usually found on Royal Navy Lynx aircraft was removed, but the reliable Lynx proved to be essential in the effective polar operations of Endurance. Two ice modified Lynx aircraft were usually carried on board HMS Endurance, at any one time.

When considering military aviation currently in service with the world’s air forces, the helicopter is arguably the most flexible and operationally capable aircraft available to commanders. As international commitments and military requirements continue to evolve, the helicopter is becoming increasingly important to operations at home and abroad.  Since the Westland Lynx was introduced in 1978, it has proved itself as one of the most advanced and capable helicopters in the world.  Fast and highly adaptable, the Lynx has the distinction of being the world’s first fully aerobatic helicopter, capable of performing some quite astonishing manoeuvres. A true multirole combat aircraft, the Lynx is also a deadly tank destroyer and submarine hunter, due to remain in British service for many years to come.

As Good As The Real Thing!

This release from Corgi accurately reproduces one of the current exhibits at the South Yorkshire Air Museum in Doncaster. SYHPS have based it there and ironically this is where my model was bought from too! The unique colour scheme and it's penguins are true to life and Corgi captures these well in the detailing of this model. A faithful reproduction which IMHO is worth the price and a must have for the helicopter and 1/72 scale modern military collector alike.

Very nice indeed, but top dollar !

I picked this up just before Christmas 2016 as a bit of a Christmas present to myself! It really is a nice piece and adds to my collection of RN or FAA Corgi aircraft. Detail is excellent. The only thing that holds back the 5th star is price.... but a must have.

Another great Lynx release

A very nice release of the Lynx with plenty of detail. I like the position of the two main landing gear, with their correct position plus the 'Day Glo' really sets this Lynx off.
