  1. Hi all and this thread is picking up a build that stalled over on the Vietnam II GB. Christmas holidays (my workbench is our dining room table) and an impending house move to allow for renovations meant I never got around to finishing it. I got as far as assembling the interior and she's going to be finished in 'Slick' configuration - need to find some M-60's from the stash somewhere. See you all in 2016! Cheers, Dermot
  2. Hey All Today I present to you a CH-118 Iroquois of 439 "Sabre-Tooth Tiger" Squadron. This particular scheme dates from 1994 when 439 Sqn were celebrating their 70th Anniversary. Enjoy... Firstly, the real aircraft... CH-118, No.118106 . . . . . . The Italeri Huey is actually a very nice kit; plenty of options and detail and a reasonable parts fit... that is until you get to the clear parts. The fit (or lack thereof) of the clear parts is just plain awful. Every window with the exception of the ones above the cockpit was too small for the opening it was supposed to go int
  3. Hi All, Just a quick one. I recently purchased the Revell 1:24 Huey, and it's a MONSTER of a kit. Unfortunately the kit decals are so painfully dull! I've had a hunt around and come up dry for aftermarket options, do any of you know if there are any out there and if so - Where? Really want to make this look a little better than the stock stuff, so anything you can point out would be great. Cheers, James

  5. Well, finally got this finished. Except now looking at the pictures, need to do a little work around the front windows. I believe as I am getting older my eyes are getting worse, what a shock!. Made this a tired old bird that had seen better days. The kit was almost no problem to put together. Two issues, one the undercarriage is way too weak to support this kit's weight. I am crafting a new one out of metal. The second issue is the nylon representations for the ammo versus the miniscule attachment points for the machine guns. I need to figure out a more permanent way to secure the gun
  6. Very large - 1/18th ! - Bell UH-1B Huey gunship kits are announced by Merit International in 2014-2015 - ref.60028 - Huey UH-1B Gunship v.1 Source: https://www.facebook.com/MeritIntlLtd?hc_location=timeline#!/photo.php?fbid=589305344494378&set=a.589304677827778.1073741854.117797744978476&type=1&theater - ref.60029 - Huey UH-1B Gunship v.2 Source: https://www.facebook.com/MeritIntlLtd?hc_location=timeline#!/photo.php?fbid=589305727827673&set=a.589304677827778.1073741854.117797744978476&type=1&theater V.P.
  7. Thought I heard a rumblin'/Calling to my name/Two hundred million guns are loaded/Satan cries "take aim"/Better run through the jungle... Hey Gang- This is my recently completed 1/72 Italeri UH-1B Huey Gunship, in the markings of the 120th AHC Razorbacks, circa Vietnam. Made a bunch of enhancements and additions to the kit. Huey gunships are very busy in the cargo/cockpit area, so the bulk of the work was done in those two spots (most of which can be seen in this Facebook photo album- https://www.facebook.com/Albymoore/media_set?set=a.10201484012640568.1073741838.1183606216&type=3# ).

  8. Italeri kit decals from kit I know this aircraft didnt wear this scheme as it was sold overseas but if it did then hopefully this is what it would look like It is a tailsitter normally Normal proviso best seen from 5ft away Rodders
  9. I've decided to embark on the next phase of my RAN Fleet Air Arm project - this time a Huey UH-1B from the Italeri 1/72 kit. One thing that has me stumped (apart from the general fit of the cabin floor which is another thing) is the orientation of the top and bottom halves of the central vertical supporting framework seen through the lower nose windows. Here is a photo of the real thing I took recently. The lower part of the central supporting frame has an angle compared to the upper part. I think the lower half angles out but the view through the perspex is quite deceiving and the upper par
  10. Hi All, here are some shots I took at the excellent Palm Springs Museum back in October.

  11. Call me insane, but here is my 6th and final entry. (Unless I find another gem on eBay cheap ) I've just won it, so until Mr Postman pops it through the door and it's in my grubby little hands you'll have to make do with an eBay photo. I built one of these in the late 80s but the skids ended up a bit lopsided, I was using Revell Contacta Pro and unfortunatly didn't leave it long enough to set. Those were the days before I trusted myself to use superglue. (I now live near a hospital as well...) I can't wait to get started on this one, the AH-1G is a beautiful looking aircraft and with my
  12. First post here (yay!) , so why not start off with a bang? And by bang, I mean gigantic helicopter. I'm not especially far along, I really just started: (if the photos don't work, lemme know) The painted passenger seats, right after I glued 'em on Front seats, painted grey. It's kind of hard to see, since the tape is clear, but I've masked the seat cushion to paint olive drab later. Instrument panel, slightly shiny from being semi-wet. I've yet to put the decal on it, but my local crafts store didn't have any decal setting solution, so I'm gonna apply it with water and prayers
  13. Hi Spent a very pleasant afternoon in the sun with a good friend, fine ale, stunning military vehicles and some wonderful flying (unfortunately "Sally B" cancelled due to "bad weather up-country", whatever that means!) I hope you enjoy the pictures - you might have guessed that the Huey was my favourite, after seeing it on static at so many shows.
