Hi all, I don`t build many choppers, I`d like to but they take up too much room, but when this became available cheap I couldn`t resist it.

was actually the German and French boxing, so had to raid the decal stash for the markings

Great build. Such a strange machine, it's too compelling to ignore!

I like the fine sling details and interior webbing too - it's the tiny details that make a model stand out like this one.

Hi Russ, You made a great job of the old 'Banana', looks the ticket. Much better than the FM kit I made a few years ago which was a pig, wish I'd waited, maybe I'll get another.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Very nicely done!! I Particularly like the sliding window feature. I have both the Special Hobby and F.M. kits in the stash and intend to combine the best of both kits (if possible without causing too much of a headache).

Great and unusual build, some lovely finishing details in there the more you look at it :)

I saw this yesterday, and have waited until now as I wanted to express my admiration properly.

Just plain beautifully lovely. That is a real modeller's model - those little details that make it pop into life are a joy to behold

literally Top Banana!!

Superb effort Russ - I'm not a helicopter fan myself either but those early a/c are fascinating
