  1. Hi everybody, This will be my first contribution to the "Ready for Inspection - Aircraft" topic and to the Britmodeller forum at all since I joined in 2021... ­čś│ But, it's never too late to start with something so here it is. It is my interpretation of the Fujimi Alouette III kit in 1/48, which is actually 1/50. It is a depiction of an Alouette III in the colours of the "Grasshoppers RNLAF Helicopter Display Team", which was a well known guest at airshows during thje 70's, 80's and 90's. A little background on how I got to built this kit. Actually I built it for someone else: when I was working with the Royal Netherlands Air Force (Koninklijke Luchtmacht - KLu) some 15 years ago, we had a lieutenant that was a former crewchief with The Grasshoppers Display Team. One day he had this kit on his desk and he told me he was looking for somebody to build it in the colourscheme of The Grasshoppers. I (me and my big mouth) told him that I would do that for him. But as things go, he retired and I left the Air Force and the kit remained unfinished. Until May 2021... I managed to contact him through Facebook and arranged a meeting at the "Alouette Museum Barneveld" where he is a volunteer. There I handed him the model, after a long time. As said: the kit is rather "off scale" (1:50 in stead of 1:48 as stated on the box). I built it OOB and especially the colourscheme was very fun to do. There were no decals to be found for this scale, so I printed them myself. I hope you like it and looking forward to posting more of my work. Cheers, Remco.
  2. AZmodel Kovoz├ívody Prost─Ťjov (KP) is to release a (plastic Heller) 1/72nd Aerospatiale SA-316B Alouette III kit - ref. KPM0151 Source: https://www.facebook.com/208070375871052/photos/a.208144655863624/2710199872324744/?type=3&theater Box art V.P.
  3. I'd like to enter this group build with the 1/72 Sud Aviation/Alouette Alouette III, which I notice no one else has picked yet, and I think is eligible as according to Scalemates it was first released in 1980 so is a Classic? Looks like new parts were added for the civilian versions in 1989 but I won't be using them anyway. I've just bought a recent re-boxing of this (from Creative Model's bargain 'damaged box' category on eBay): but perversely, even though it comes with a nice-looking modern decal sheet for the Gendarmerie (much the best I've seen in a Heller kit), I intending building it as a SA319 from the Arm├ęe de l'Air, using earlier Heller decals and/or yellow numbers/letters from ModelDecal 50 (intended for the Puma): Should be fun to build, I don't remember any major problems with the previous one I built (as a Naval SA-316B - hence my desire to build a contrasting Arm├ęe de l'Air version with the Astazou engine) Tim
  4. Replacing my placeholder for the Dewoitine will be an Alouette III :). I hope I get time for her Martin
