Hi all, Having some time over the weekend I was looking for another quick and cheerfull kit to build. Since i build mostely models in a Belgian livery finding kits that come with Belgian decals is always a treat. I've build a few hobby boss kits before and they usually go together very well, and are nicely detailed however not always as accurate as i'd like. the Sikorsky is no exception. I'm no expert on this helicopter, and i don't want to get caught on trying to replicate every last rivet, or try to superdetail it but some things need some attention to better replicat

These were the last parts I needed to make the remaining 2 models I needed for my Red Devils set (having already done a Fouga Magister and having done the solo Alpha Jet in it's red scheme - as seen here and here respectively). Now I've started wit hthe SF-260, knowing it's going to be hte one I hate doing the most - I just don't like doing resin kits. Lukcily it's a pretty straight forward
I picked up this little kit for around 4€ in a toystore. Post ww1 some german types saw service in the belgian airforce. most where stripped of their guns and used as trainers. I wanted a quick build so i build it almost straight from the box, only leaving off the guns and covering the hole with plastic card and filler, i also added a windshield. the lozenge cammo presented a problem as the kit decals only provice a black outline pattern for these and revell will have you paint each individual square by hand... seriously revell? I googled some lozenge patters and p
