  1. Now that would be cool!
  2. Thanks for all your kind comments, good to see I'm not the only one who has a soft spot for this movie and this aircraft!
  3. Thanks for the comments, much appreciated! Such an iconic film and aircraft. Pretty certain it's white overall, from what I can see from freezing the DVD and also pics online of the Swiss aircraft used. I have spare 1:144 decals if you want them Josip?
  4. Hi all, Have wanted to do this scheme for a while, got the kit in December 2017 and finally started it late last year. I got the decals custom made but they got lost in the Christmas post so had to be re-sent, so I only got it finished a couple of days ago. It's a decent kit, but I had some fit issues, especially with the windows section, as the two strips for the windows are clear (both the windows themselves and the surrounding area) so it's hard to get them flush with the plastic fuselage sides. I also had some issues with the method I tried to use to do the camo, so all in all this isn't as 'smooth' a build as I would like! That said, it looks like the movie aircraft and I'm happy enough to have it done and on the shelf. If anyone wants the decals that came with the kit (Eduard 1:144 'Airliner') or even the spare sets of 'Where Eagles Dare' decals (there was enough room on the decal sheet when I ordered them to get a few sets made up) just let me know, they're yours. Thanks. Kit: Eduard Ju-52 'Airliner' Scale: 1:144 Paint & Weathering: Airbrushed with One Shot Mig Primer and Revell Aqua Colours, Weathered with Oils. Extras: Bedlam Creations Custome Decals for 'Where Eagles Dare' scheme.

    Another request for someone who prints decals

    Just to answer my own question, I found a place called Bedlam Creations in the US. Obviously I haven't seen the decals yet, but at least they answered my query and we're happy to only print one sheet! We'll see how it turns out...
  6. Hi there, I'm looking for some custom decals, just black serial numbers and WW2 Balkenkreuz for a 1:144 scale aircraft. All in black only, and all pretty small. Can anyone recommend someone who could do this? I only need one sheet. Thanks...
  7. I’d like to join please, I’ve a 1:48 Tamiya F-117A that has been looking at me for a while, waiting for me to build it. Hope to do it in the Grey Dragon scheme. Thanks!
  8. Thanks for the kind words everyone, I appreciate it...
  9. Hi all, Just finished this last night. I spent far too long on it, nearly four months, but that's probably more to do with not enough time at the bench then actual effort put into it. It represents one of the 4 Chinook Gunships that flew in Vietnam - 'Co$t of Living'. Unfortunately while on a mission the mounting pins on one of the 20mm Cannon came loose and caused it to fire into its own rotors and the aircraft was lost with all of its crew. I went all out on this, I got the Eduard PE set, most of which is inside the cabin and can now only be seen with a torch! I also got some Zotz decals and I have to say experience of them was poor, I was cursed with silvering! In fact, that's my biggest gripe with this build. I tried some black basing but ended up being a little too subtle with it. Used Mr. Paint for the main colour (a paint I'm falling in love with) and also used Uschi Rigging for the first time for the aerial and found it excellent! Anyhow, here are some pics (it's a difficult bugger to photograph!). Any advice/comments welcome, I'm here to learn. Thanks... Kit: Italeri ACH-47A Chinook Gunship Scale: 1:72 Paint & Weathering: Airbrushed with Mr. Paint and Tamiya Paints, weathered with Oils and Pastels Extras: Eduard PE Set and Zotz Decals Build Thread: Here

    Vietnam Chinook Rotor colour

    Excellent, thanks for your reply, that's good enough for me!

    Vietnam Chinook Rotor colour

    Hi there, I’m trying to find out what colour the rotors were on the US Chinooks in Vietnam. Ideally rotors on any of the four Chinook Gunships. Pictures seem to suggest Black or Olive Drab, but a lot of the pics are black and white so it’s hard to tell. I have instructions for two Chinook Gunship kits (1:48 and 1:72 Italeri) and one says Gunship Grey and the other says Black. Any ideas what I should be going for? Thanks...

    Italeri 1:72 ACH-47 Chinook Gunship Instructions

    That's very helpful, thanks a lot for that!

    Italeri 1:72 Su-34 Fullback +++FINISHED+++

    Thanks for your kind words lads. I had hoped it would turn out better, sharper or something like that, but I'm glad it's done and it's just a cool looking aircraft!
  15. Hi everyone... Just wondering if anyone has the Instructions for this kit, and could scan/photograph them for me? It's kit No. 057. I bought the kit second hand and there were no instructions with it. Thanks...
