1/72 Chinese Z-19 Black Whirldwind "LH-94978"

Recommended Posts

Dreammodel 1/72 Chinese Z-19 Attack & Reconnaissance helicopter. It's their latest released product and new tooling.

This is the t3 pre-production kit, it shared some parts with the dauphin and the canopy has not been completely polished.
I didn't follow its original marking because it's too damned ugly lol. I painted it with USMC AH-1Z Grey plus a shark mouth decal that can increase the fierceness.
Basically It's OOB. The details and fitting are very good, not much of decals too so it's beginner-friendly.
The actual building day is seven days.

That's a super cool gunship.I guess nowadays if a country wants to have a gunship of their own,just copypaste it from an available design.(Yes the Chinese have a license to produce the dauphin).All in all that's a marvellous model.Hopefully Dreammodel will also release the look alike chinese version of the Blackhawk.

Superb magazine-quality build!

Are you sure this isn't 1/32nd scale?  🤔

Only joking - it just looks that good.👍

A flawless built, very nice. I like the weathering.

I guess, we will see more and more Chinese designs here over the years. They seem to produce far more new equipment than the West at the moment (although this one clearly shows its France ancestry).

Fantastic result! Do you mind me asking how you achieved such a realistic looking tint to the cockpit glass? 

Thanks, it's Hasegawa tint paper, very rare to find now, you can search on eBay or HLJ.
