1/72 Boeing Vertol 107 Columbia Helicopters


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to present my 1/72 Fujimi Boeing Vertol 107 in Columbia Helicopters livery.  Finished a while ago for a group build, but I never took and submitted any completed photos.

That looks lovely Aaron - refreshing after seeing so many 107s/H-46s in various camo schemes (though the Swedish one is gorgeous!). Very nice indeed.

 

Cheers

Great helicopter build and beautiful finish, except…

 

…I don't understand these dark smudges over the panel joints. What is supposed to have caused them IRL?

 

Kind regards,

Each to their own, Joachim, each to their own. One mans pristine is another mans boring. Lets live & let live, eh? :)

Thanks Joachim,

 

I find white quite a difficult colour to use without the finish looking too flat, if that makes sense? I pre-shaded to add some depth to the colour. It’s not to everyone’s taste, I get that.  But I think the effect looks more excessive in these photos than on the actual model.  I’ve played about with the subtlety on a couple of kits.  I used black as the preshade on a Wessex 60 but the effect was quite dark and the finished model looked very grubby. I’ve tried a lighter grey on a red sycamore and I was really pleased with the result. To be honest I can’t remember what I used here, I think it was grey, but granted it’s maybe a bit too dark but I take that and learn for next time.

 

thank you

Aaron
