The Westland Scout helicopter is one example. I must have made half a dozen of these aircraft as Airfix kits during the sixties.
So, seeing the real thing at Saturday's airshow was a real buzz. Watching it hovering above me reminded me of times years ago when I'd have more plastic cement on my hands than the kit.
The Scout AH 1 was a land based general purpose helicopter, primarily used by the Army Air Corps throughout the sixties and seventies. A navel variant was also developed called the Wasp.
The Scout also featured in the 1982 film, 'Who Dare's Wins', which starred Lewis Collins.
