Well Nigel she has been worth the wait as she really is looking very good indeed.

I hope the last few bits and bobs don't take too long, we all know how real life has a habit of getting in the way of modelling, I look forward to seeing her in the gallery soon.

Many thanks, Craig  :happy:

 

The last few weeks have been a struggle with finding time but I'm pleased to report that she is now complete with photos uploaded to Flickr. However, Flickr is currently off-line for maintenance so I'll have to put her in the gallery tomorrow. I might also try a couple of pictures in the sunshine before I do!! :brb:

Well done Nigel!

I look forward to seeing the pics when Flickr get their act together, especially ones taken in the sunshine.

Me too!! I took the photos and can only see them on the screen of my phone! Waiting to see what they look like on a bigger screen once Flickr is back up.

 

Have a busy weekend ahead so I may have to wait until Monday (if they get their act sorted)

Any clues how to work the new Flickr? I've uploaded my pictures but there's nothing in 'Camera Roll' :facepalm:

OK - So I managed to get some photos on Flickr.

 

Before I call this build complete, I have to praise Craig for being such a wonderful host. He's invested time into every entry and has offered help and support where required. Personally, a few weeks ago I didn't know the difference between a Sea Knight and a Chinook so I consider myself educated via this GB. Top job and many thanks!!!! :worthy:

Wow, that looks exceptional. Very nice work with the folded rotors. The canopy masking is also excellent, I hope I can get mine looking half as good.

The wait for the photos was well worth it. Nice to see another CH-46 with blades folded.

Thank you, Nigel. Very much appreciated  :happy:  I used an Eduard mask for the canopy; I find they are generally pretty good as long as they are pulled at an angle when removing. I'm sure yours will look just fine!
