Revell EH-101 HMA.1 1/72 Royal Navy No. 824

Hi all.

 

I haven't posted anything on britmodeller for ages. But here goes my first helicopter build. Revell Merlin built OOB. Painted with humbrol and clear coated with Tamiya rattle matt. Had to strip the paint off of the rotor blades a few times, as I rushed the masking.. 

Fairly happy with the result - I don't know if I will ever build a helicopter again. Who knows. 

 

Cheers, 

 

Robin

That is a beautifully finished model! I have one of these to build and will be thrilled if it turns out even half this well!

Super looking Merlin.  A great paint finish and weathering. Are you going to build a Danish example?

Remarkably convincing Merlin, especially considering the scale.

 

Looking forward to your next whirly!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Thanks everyone! I was nervous about posting this here, as it was my first helicopter build. But everybody seems to enjoy it, and I can only say thanks for the kind messages! 

 

Cheers, Robin

Hello Match,

Great finish on your RN helicopter.

Indeed, good to see a finished one.
