Attack Squadron 1/72 MQ-8C Fire Scout
June 8, 2016 in Aviation
Here is my recently completed Attack Squadron 72 scale MQ-8C fire Scout. This was actually an easy build being all resin and about 20 tiny tiny pieces of photo etch. The rotor head is 3D printed and was pretty detailed. I did replace the flimsy copper wire for the skid cross tubes (the part that attaches to the fuselage) with brass rod for added strength. I figured the skids would have splayed out from the weight of the fuselage. Finished in Tamiya XF-19 over a base of Mr. Surfacer 1000, with fading and shading and an oil wash.
