ACH-47 Chinook "Easy Money" 1/48 Italeri


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'd like to present ACH-47 Chinook from Vietnam, named "Easy Money", which belonged to "Guns a Go-Go" unit.
Model is from Italeri, really nice to put together, only decal's instructions were full of errors. Few decals were in wrong color also.
It's painted as usual with Tamiya and Mr. Hobby range.Weathering was done using Tamiya, Ammo Mig's and AK Interactive fluids and pigments.

Nice job on that one. :yes:

You don't see too many built for some reason.

 

I finished mine in 2017(having started it in 2012!😁

I did 413154 "Birth Control", using Zotz decals. Pics are on BM somewhere.

 

:cheers:

A very well done model of a very distinctive helicopter. Until today I didn't know that version of the CH-47 existed.

Thank you :) Unfortunatelly there is no chance to buy Zotz Decals in Poland so I was limited to "Stumpjumper" and "Easy Money".

Thanks :) For me it was also a big surprise. Assault transport chopper...sounds strange :)

Thank you. Four were build. First for tests - "Co$t of Living" . It was a prototype so stayed in US. "Easy Money", "Birth Control" and "Stumpjumper" were send to Vietnam. Only "Easy Money" survived. Now, after restoration, it's on display at Redstone Arsenal.
