Boeing A/ACH-47A Chinook 1/72 Italeri

Recommended Posts

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 correct then the initial application. In addition to the incorrect M2's the seats are not the correct armored ones for the A/ACH-47A and the front dog house just doesn't look right.

 

So, on to the pictures.
