This is my rendition of Italeri's Boeing A/ACH-47A Chinook. For an Italeri kit this went together fairly easily. I used the Eduard cockpit detail set and their .50 M2 set to replace the incorrect machine guns supplied with the kit. I also used the Zotz decal sheet. The kit decals were from early in these gunship's deployment while the Zotz ones were from late. I would have preferred to use the kit decals but the clung to the paper for dear life and kept tearing so I went with the Zotz ones. However the Zotz decals were a disappointment with really bad silvering that took far more time to correct then the initial application. In addition to the incorrect M2's the seats are not the correct armored ones for the A/ACH-47A and the front dog house just doesn't look right. So, on to the pictures. Its actually kind of big for a 1/72 helicopter Next up in the Hobby Boss SH-60F Oceanhawk Enjoy
This is my latest, the Italeri AC-47D gunship in 1/72. I built this pretty much OOB with the exception of the decals. The kit was better then average for Italeri with mostly good fit and recessed panel lines. My one comment is that the kit instructions show putting the last gun in the door way. This was true for the earliest AC-47's, but later ones, and the one I had the decals for, moved it from the doorway to an additional window added just in front of the door. The kit has the outline of that window inscribed into the inside of the fuselage, but the instructions make no mention of using it. The decals that came with the kit looked a little tired so I used the ones from the Kit-World KW172096 sheet which were excellent. My only comment on them is that the instructions were somewhat lacking in detail of what goes where and their drawing are almost too small to help. Here is my AC-119K and AC-47D together Next us should be the AC-130, but while I have the paint out I am going to do the Italeri B-26K since it is the last kit in the pile that uses the SEA color scheme.
