  1. Early in lockdown last year I fancied building a 1/35 OH-6A Cayuse but they were rather thin on the ground . However a fellow BM'er came up trumps and supplied me with an Italeri boxing kit along with a resin XM-27 mini gun, an eduard eched detail set, paint masks and a couple of resin figures for a very reasonable price. I was also lent a very interesting book called Aeroscouts in Vietnam which contains a wealth of information on how the OH-6A was used in Vietnam and also a lot of great pictures which I used to provide inspiration for the build. The M16 and M60 and, I think the grenade box, which I altered, came with the kit. The wooden ammo box came with the XM-27, the smoke and frag grenades were from Bravo*6 with the decals coming from someone on the internet. The body armour under the rear seat was scratchbuilt. After taking these pictures I had a bit of an accident and knocked the whole thing on the floor smashing it into several pieces! However I managed to get it back together again, not made any easier by the fact that I mixed up the Olive Drab colour originally. During the build I came across the fellers and decided that they would look great with the OH-6 It took quite a while to finish these guys as I am no figure painter. However I persisted and here they are: I thoroughly enjoyed the build although getting the canopy glass to fit was difficult. The book also includes pictures of other heli's used by the Aeroscouts soooooo I am now the proud owner of Italeri's 1/35 OH-13 Thanks for looking Mick
  2. Hello! Finally I've finished this project, my Dominican OH-6 is ready, please wellcome it. The vuilding was not an easy ride, no parts were fitting and the details were a li'l bit sci-fi. You can read further h e r e . First I show you some shots about the progress. Lots of slef made parts was required to make myself setisfied. Almost totally new tail rotor: Seat : Somehow they writen ID insted of FAD. Just... how come?? Anyway I found two A-s and converted two E-s to F: The liquid mask was too old maybe and it was too thin, gooey and easy to tear. Sometimes it made such a thin film that i had to look up photos, where is it. So more and more layers needed to picking it off. Anyway I won, this is it:
  3. Calling this one done Not one of my best builds but had a bit of fun whilst stuck at home recovering from back op and most of this one was done standing up It's from the box, interior doesn't sit right but that's probably me WIP on Twitter if anyone is interested: https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm%20Italeri%20OH-6&src=typd Brush painted with Vallejo Olive Drab, Quickshine to gloss then LifeColor Matt Varnish to finish. LifeColor and Vallejo for details and the nice Vallejo Light and Dark grey acrylic washes to pick out details It's really small compared to the Cobra I did last year http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234979702-cobra/ PSP Base is from Eduard, airbrushed with Tamiya Gun Metal then weathered Hope you enjoy, more of my models here: http://blog.cjhm.net/ and here: https://twitter.com/cjhm_models/ More pics here: http://blog.cjhm.net/172-italeri-oh-6a
  4. Hi there, this is my Hughes OH-6A by AMP just completed. A lot of interior & exterior self-made improvements, resin parts by CMK, Tailboom (Maurizio Di Terlizzi), Quickboost and Tarmac. A special thanks to Joseph Osborn of Fireball Modelworks for nice decals sheet and support for painting. Cheers, Alessandro Rome (Italy)
  5. Not as many from me this year as last year, mostly due to work commitments but also a couple of these models taking far longer than they should...... All are 1/72 except one. In no particular order, first up a Special Hobby Hughes TH-55. I had no idea how many parts you are expected to scratchbuild with this kit. Quite a few of them really should have been provided in the kit. The skids were very brittle and I ended up replacing them with brass rod bent to shape. Keeping it in the family, Italeri OH-6A...... ....and their AH-6 ....Profiline MD500 - more pics here .......and their MD520N NOTAR - more pics here Amodel Su-26 with home made decals for one of the first Su-26s I ever saw; The two-seat Su-29 And the updated Su-31 Minicraft 757 1/144 - more pics here Italeri OH-58A converted to a Jet Ranger - more pics here Pavla Fa330 - very fiddly! - more pics here MPM Trent Meteor - more pics here Italeri Junkers Ju-52 - more pics here Amodel Yak-25RV - more pics here Pulled this out of the stash as the flimsy box was really suffering and thought 'There's only a few parts, how long would that take?' Big mistake, nothing fitted and lots of filler. After painting and decalling, I gave it a clear coat and the white in the decals bled out into the clear coat. That took some cleaning up and it's not perfect now but certainly a lot better than it was. Tupolev ANT-25 one of only a couple of kits produced by Tupolev themselves and a huge model! After the Tupolev struggle I felt like doing something just for fun, I'll add a load to it in the New Year, Airfix Recovery Set; Finally an Airfix Tucano. Bought this second-hand a few years ago, the decals were badly out of register so I did my own and just for something a bit different chose one of the QinetiQ aircraft. The paint is still wet on this at the moment so I'll tidy a few things up in the morning. Happy New Year to everyone. Steve
  6. Aeroscouts in Vietnam – Combat Chronicles Series Squadron Signal Publishing (ISBN 978-0-89747-674-4) Another of the new Combat Chronicles books, this edition details the experiences of the pilots of the Loach, or Light Observation Helicopter, the Hughes OH-6A Cayuse, during the Vietnam war. It is a mixture of text and contemporary photos, plus a few current photos of the aviators and their mounts. The first pages are taken up by the forward and introduction, with details about the aircraft and the situation and political circumstances that led to the conflict in Vietnam in the 60s and 70s. It lays the groundwork for the stories to come, putting them into context with the overall story. The stories then begin, and there are 31 of them in total, spanning 2 to 6 pages each, and incorporating appropriate pictures when they are available. There are a number of then-and-now shots of the pilots themselves, as well as quite a few beaten up Loaches that have strayed too close to the enemy for comfort. The Loach was quite well equipped for crew survivability in the event of a crash, but it still managed the unenviable achievement of having the highest crew and equipment losses of the war. Some of the stories beggar belief with lucky escapes and close calls, that should keep the reader amused for hours. Page count is 136, and with over half of the pages used in the story-telling, it's not just a quick read, however because of the way the stories are laid out on a few pages, it should be easy to pick up and read for short periods whilst admiring some of the excellent pictures that cry out to be recreated with dioramas. From the 1:48 modeller's point of view (a.k.a. me) there are the Academy and Hasegawa kits of this pugnacious little chopper, and in 1:35 there is the rare Dragon kit, the old Revell/Hobby Craft kits in 1:32, while in 1:72, modellers have the Italeri kit to play with. There were lots of variations on the armament and equipment fits, so be careful to check your references if reading this book inspires you to build. Highly recommended.
