Grumman OV-1C Mohawk and Family

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, just finished the last of my Roden 1/48 Mohawks

Done as an aircraft of 131st AVN Company, Vietnam, 1969

Built OOB apart from a few bits of wire and card

and a bucket of lead shot to keep the nose down

still didn`t quite manage to avoid decal silvering, but best result yet...

putting them straight down onto microsol and hitting with hair dryer.

Thought I`d also show the rest of the collection so far; all Roden 1/48, first the OV-1A

adding a bit of colour with the `Hi Vis` markings

Hope you enjoy looking at,

All Mohawked out, Cheers Russ

That's stunning Russ. How do you knock them out so fast as they certainly don't look rushed ?

Thanks Guaggua`, the fit isn`t too bad, not much filler if you`re careful. BUT the canopy is not very good and always gives me grief and Roden decals aren`t the best.

Cheers Woody, I don`t think I`m that fast as I started it at the end of June, but I tend to have 3 kits on the go at any time as I often paint and work myself into corners.

Very nice models of an aircraft that proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I always thought the OV1 was a beautiful aircraft but my some of my friends failed to see the attraction. OV10 & OV1's are both favorites of mine.

Very nice Mohawks. I like the weird look of the OV-1.
