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 corre
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.
