CH-47D Tribute build

January 25, 2017 in Aviation

Hello iModeler! Here are a few pics of a 1/48 scale Italeri Chinook I recently built for a friend, who is a veteran and former Chinook Flight Engineer. I used Werner’s Wings decals for the serial number of his aircraft, did a lot of scratch building on the interior, and used photos of his actual aircraft as reference for painting and weathering. If you like, you can follow the entire build here:

  1. Great work Ramon! The shading and weathering look realistic, and it’s nicely finished.

  2. Another fine build Ramon.
    Lovely finish and nice present to your friend.

  3. Great model! It would be very interesting to look inside ))

    • Thank you Dmitry! Once finished, I didn’t get any pics of the interior aside from what can be seen above, but you can get a better look inside the cabin by clicking the link to see my work in progress thread. 🙂

  4. Great looking build, Ramon…and a fine presentation as well.

  5. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Job well done Ramon. The weathering is spot on. Your friend I trust is very proud to have it. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  6. Well that’s put my attempt to shame!!
    Awesome work mate, and a very cool work in progress. The level of detail inside the interior is really impressive. You have obviously put a lot of work into it. Great end result!

  7. That really looks spot on Ramon, took several rides in CH-47’s. Well known for being faster than an Apache.
