  1. Monogram 1/48 Bell AH-1S Cobra

    You really captured the look of that aircraft! I always thought the AH-1 looked way more bad bottom than the Apache! This will get your heart beating!
  2. Beautiful Job, Russ! The weathering is completely accurate.
  3. My Tamiya 1/48 A6M2 of the 261st Kokutai, created in Kagoshima in June 1943 and "dissolved" in Saipan, after the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot in July 1944. Click picture for action.
  4. Naval: 2 x torpedoes or 4x Sea Skua missiles or 2 x depth charges
  5. Really interesting helicopter. Looks like it would be a blast to fly! I wonder if the tailboom is angled to off set torque?
  6. What problems did you have?
  7. How did you get those seam lines out?
  8. Bulldog trainer

    I could never master biplanes, so don't worry!
  9. This is Monogram's 1/48 UH-1C kit. Its a pretty descent representation of the Charlie model with 2.75 inch rockets and 40 mm "chunker" on the nose. It even comes with the fat, 540 rotors and wide cord tail. One mistake I see on a lot of UH-1 models is that many builders paint the laminations at the blade root the same color as the rotor mast. These laminations were covered with an epoxy type coating, then painted the color of the blade. Vietnam birds main rotors were painted either OD or black. Many UH-1Cs were converted to the Mike model and soldiered on in the National Guard until the late 80s. Crews generally loved them because they carried two door gunners which could cover their break off a target, thus protecting their rear. Hope you like my Plain Jane UH-1C typical of attack helicopter platoons in Vietnam, around 1970. Monogram even got the window shapes correct as you can see from my bird in the last photo. Handsome devil! (Need more helicopter models on Britmodeller.)
  10. That should be in an aviation museum for all to enjoy.
  11. Wow, such a beautiful plane!
  12. Italeri Chinook HC.2 ,1/48th

    Lovely Chinook
  13. KC-97L Stratotanker

    Saw your kit at the Mad City Modelers Show, love the paint job.
