  1. I'm having to take a break from modelling due to eye strain. (Yep, from modelling, yep that's what you get for doing 1/144 scale) I thought I would show what I've been working on for a while.
  2. Here is my second finished model of 2019; its Revell's EC135 (1:72) in Irish Air Corps livery ..although as I am posting these pictures I realise I still have to print off the code numbers...whoops. Anyway the kit is gammy because the glass work is bad/ scratched and pitted and I know this because the three copies of the kit I have all have the same issue. Secondly the glass work is a poor fit and mine came apart during spraying..... repeatedly. On-line builds repeat the same experience. This was a father-son build over the Christmas but as my son wanted an Irish one instead of the Dutch Trauma Helicopter in the kit I had to add a lot of extras. A radar nose, different air intakes, extra landing lights, different skids and a lot of bumps and lumps scattered around the a/c. Decals sourced form a Maxdecal sheet for the Gazelle because as far as I know there is no EC135 featured on the various Maxdecal sheets. Not 100% sure though. If you want to build an Irish one try and get your hands on the EC635 Swiss Army chopper (04647) or the Air Glaciers (Revell 04986) as these have an extra sprue with a lot of the stuff you need though no radar. regards Brian
  3. Revell 1/72 kit not sure what scheme to do Kit has quite a bit of flash on it. The box has lots of different versions in the box including a full air ambulance interior but there are no instructions for this version. The Mk9 Whirlwind is back in the stash as I dont want to build it without a hoist so that is a problem for another day. anyway here are the box and spurs
  4. AIRBUS Helicopters EC135 ANWB 1:72 Revell The EC-135 light twin engined helicopter is a joint French/German development, which originated as a further development of the BO-105 helicopter. In late 1992, the design was revised with the introduction of the Fenestron tail rotor system, reflecting the creation of Eurocopter that year through the merger of Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB) and Aérospatiale. The combination of lower accident potential from the enclosed rotor, and interior space, have made the EC135 popular with Police and aeromedical helicopter operators. The EC135 is the best selling light twin of the past 10 years. The Royal Dutch Touring Club (Dutch, Algemene Nederlandse Wielrijdersbond or ANWB) is a travelers' association in the Netherlands, supporting all modes of travel. It's responsible for traffic signs and signage on roads and trails. It also offers test reports, travel services and roadside assistance. The Helicopters are operated by MAA a Dutch helicopter company that provides medical support services. The kit The kit has been around from Revell since 2001 and has been released periodically since then. We last reviewed the kit here back in 2011. The mouldings are still as good, but now in white plastic not silver. With this release are decals for PH-ELP operated for ANWB. Conclusion Even though this kit has been around for a while now it is a good kit of the EC135 and will make upto a good model. It is great Revell keep releasing these kits with different civilian decal schemes. Recommended Revell model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers. For further information visit
  5. http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/Ausstellungen/Nuernberg2013/Bilder_VH/Nuernberg_2013_VH_030.htm This certainly looks like a step up from the old kit! Although it's a shame that they haven't re-engineered the windscreen parts to make assembly easier - hopefully the fit at least will be better. Separate doors are a nice touch. Does anyone know if the Red Bull boxing is a reboxing of this new tool or the old tool. If my memory serves me, the Red Bull boxing is due for release before this one. thanks, Andrew
