1/72 Revell EC145 Rega
September 5, 2015 in Aviation
Look what just landed in the back yard !! (snicker snicker) I like building helicopters. I made new parts for both sets of rotor blades from brass rod, tubing and E string. This allowed free spinning for the photos and to prevent breakage in case that frail tail rotor got bumped. I added a few more antennas and lights for detail.
This was a horrible kit. I thought skill level 4 might / should mean better quality, not just an extra 50 or so badly fitting parts to deal with. The decals, although plentiful, caused additional problems. I polished and coated all the clear parts to help with the in scale appearance. Give it a squint and tell me what you think.
