The Sea King HAR.3 is a modified Search and Rescue (SAR) variant of the Westland Sea King, entering service in 1978 as a replacement for the Westland Whirlwind HAR.10. It first saw operation with the RAF in 1982 during the Falklands War and was later manufactured by Westland for the Royal Norwegian Air Force, the Belgian Air Force and the German Nay. In 1992, six upgraded HAR.3As were ordered. They were fitted with a digital navigation system and improved avionics. The HAR.3 would endure as a proficient SAR Sea Kin, providing around-the-clock SAR cover across the UK and Falkland Islands. They are expected to remain in service until 2018, and have been flown by the Duke of York, and the Duke of Cambridge in operational roles. The standard SAR four-man crew consists of two pilots, a radar and winch operator, and a winchman/paramedic.

This is an ideal beginners set as it contains poly cement 2 paint brushes and 6 acrylic paints.
