I was ALSO contemplating between the 1/72 or 1/35 and put the 1/35 back on the shelve due to .. space constrains...  :lol:

The italeri kit is very good! Fittings are superb with minimum gaps.

A session or Huey creative origami with a candle and modeling saw.







The base.. have to wait for the white glue to dry before anything goes on it.

Great work! Looks like it's been sitting there for quite a while.

Whoa!  Nice!
I'm always impressed by people who model things into "broken" states; I think it's generally straightforward to imagine/create something that looks new, but it takes a special perspective (which I sadly don't have) to makes things into worn and damaged situations.

I'm guessing that the crew survived the crash?   :D

I like the weathering that was done on the chopper, but if you had more time, you could have varied the vegetation a bit more.

Survive in a chopper like that, I'm not so sure...  :meh:
