1/35 Bell 212 VH-NSY NSCA Decals


The Chopper

Back in the 1980s Australia boasted a world class Sea Air Rescue and safety organisation in the National Safety Council of Australia. With a large fleet of fixed and rotary wing aircraft, boats, trucks and even a ship, the NSCA was very prominently in the public eye. VH-NSY was one of the fleet of big Bell Twin Hueys they used.

The Decals

These decals are designed for the Panda kit, which may well now be a Dragon kit. The kit itself is quite well detailed and builds into a reasonable representation of a 212 / UH-1N straight out of the box. However, to accurately portray VH-NSY, you may choose to make a few additions and amendments. These changes include: Adding boxes under the nose and tail boom
Removing the tail cone and adding the substructure
Altering the cabin windows and adding a strake to the doors
Adding boxes, wooden floor panelling and a winch to the interior
Moving the tail rotor to the port side
Adding flotation gear (optional)

These are the main visual changes. I have seen pics of this bird with and without the floatation gear, so you have some choice there. I will put a build article covering some of these modifications I made to build VH-NSA in the modelling section of the site. There are, of course, any number of other improvements you can make to the model.
