The Royal Navy Wessex HAS.1 Model Kit by Italieri recreates this Royal Navy helicopter. Directly derived from the American Sikorsky S-58 "Choctaw", it was produced under license by the British company Westland since the late 50s.
The Wessex HAS.1, initially produced for the Royal Navy, was characterized by significant capabilities in all-weather operations and able of being an effective anti-submarine platform. Compared to its predecessor, the Westland Whirlwind, the Wessex is a decisive improvement with greater offensive load capacity and a much better reliability.
This kit is perfect as a gift for any passionate model enthusiast - or perhaps a project for you. Construct this model to recreate this unique aircraft, and paint it to bring it to life!
