Amazing project!
I don't want to be considered a rivet counter  :embarrased:.. but remove bullet shields around front seats: armored crew seats are typical of the military version  ;)

>Here< is a walkaround af the AB 212 "Aeronautica Militare" (Italian Airforce) equivalent to UH-1N with a lot of details.

Thanks! Already removed the shields since I posted. :lol: (mostly... I left some of it in place for support and have seen this in other refs)

Great link! I wish I had that page  you linked to before I got to this point. Would had made this much easier. I was considering detailing the insides of the doors, but since I plan to keep them close there's no need. Maybe the small inside doors actually since those will be left open.

I have a bunch of 1/35 copters in my stash. One of my mag gigs pays me in model stuff and books and I have a TON of Eduard (Big Ed) sets for some of these. In the 1/35 helicopter pile I have:

DML/Panda UH-1D HEER
Academy/MRC MH-60G Pavehawk
Trumpeter CH-47D Chinook (massive!)
Trumpeter Mi-24 Hind D
Acaremy/MRC AH-1W Cobra

Obviously I have an affinity for rotary prop aircraft which is odd considering this will be my first copter build.

I have three MI-24 Hind books (Love the Hind!) and the editor sent me one on the MI-8/9 HIP. Before I got this book I didn't even know a 1/35 kit of it existed. May have to look for it. (trumpeter) It looks like the Hind and Chinook had a baby.

Awesome details.  I'm a civie and get to work on the flightline at New River MCAS in Jacksonville NC .  I love seeing the Huey's, Cobras, Super Stallions, and Ospreys flying all over.  Looking forward to this one.

I wish I could.  The military gets slightly upset about people with cameras taking pictures around any of their equipment especially hangers and aircraft.  Something to do with homeland security.

Besides Sci-Fi, I love rotary wing aircraft. I really like the detail your putting into this! I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on this.

Here’s the near-completed interior. All I’ve left to do is to dirty-up the floor a bit with a little dust in the corners via a thin oil-paint wash.Seatbelts and consoles were the pre-painted PE that came with the kit. I just had to paint the backs of the seatbelts as some parts of those were visible. The ‘cloth’ gear and seats were painted with 502 Abteilung oil-paints.

Excellent work but I want close ups or bigger images.  :D
I wonder about the guy that can sit through a David Lynch movie and say, "I saw that coming."

Looking great. I love how the orange and blue parts pop from the green/grey colors but at the same time they're not overly bright.

I'm interested to see how you tackle the windows. I'm currently building a 1:48 BO-105 heli and I had huge problems with windows.

Thanks. I have some but didn't think it'd be an issue.

Does Eduard make canopy masks for that kit? I'm using their masks for the UH-1D and they're pretty nice so far. Windows are tricky though. I'm also using liquid mask.

WOW!!!! Thats looking great.  Nice job on all the subtle details.
Thanks!
