not sure too many are working on Sea Kings right now

if you have Photoshop (or picked up GIMP for free) we would be glad to talk you through creating one yourself though.

There is no green RAf Skin out.

But which model are you talking About?

Capun has a Sea King done (older model) and also Florian did one.

For Florians I guess there are templates around. For Capuns I don´t think so.

and to get capuns if they got one ,like asking George H Bush to tell truth...or his son,not to say stupid things like "More and more of our imports are from abroad now"

RAF dispatched only single  Sea King XZ592 during the Falklands conflict. Used mostly for replenishment sorties to ships supporting the task force. It was painted in grey camo back then.

 

First RAF Sea King to serve in Falkland painted in yellow SAR scheme was XZ596 and arrived with 78th Sq in August 1999.

those are HC.4 used by Fleet Air Arm....

 

RAF used only HAR.3 version and as I said only single one was deployed.

 

edit:

not trying to be a dick or something...just guy asked about RAF.

 

As for templates, I've made one some time ago when releasing some Sea King skins...But If I remember correctly I've lost it somewhere. So maybe someone has it from me.

If you watch the Falklands War footage the Sea Kings have a all green scheme, are they RAF or RN Sea Kings?, Actually I think they were RN HC.4

I have watched some footage. And also I have a quite large private database on Sikorsky/Westland Sea King...(just in case for future). And yes most of the Sea Kings were painted 'green'. But those were Fleet Air Arm, not Royal Air Force.  You asked in your question above about green RAF.

As the topic is very interesting for me - unique deployment of only one RAF Sea King - thought you were referring to RAF as stated above.

I'm kind of helicopter history prevert....so bear with me.

Pictures of Green Sea Kings during the Falklands are rare. Lots of pics of RN birds in South West Asia with their big sand filters.

Oh here is another one from my collection.

Good Snivel. Another challenge tho is I believe the RN Sea Kings flying the Royal Marines about did not have the sponsons. CL

You seen the BBC Live doc of the Falklands, especially the part when the BBC crew were in the Wessex as two Skyhawks came close to them
