Bell-206B Jetranger, Croatian Air Force; Italeri 1/72

August 6, 2017 in Aviation

An easy kit to build, but it was a painting challenge. It was the tiniest model I’ve made (cca 12-13cm) which made masking job very difficult. For example painted sqares are 4x4mm and it took a lot of tryouts before I managed to line them all up. It’s not perfect, maybe I’ll find some nerves for small fixes sometime in the future, but looks nice enough for show up.

  1. Considering the small size you had to work with, I think you represented the photos well with your build. Nice work.

  2. Boris, that is a beautiful color scheme, and you did it well. In 172, even more remarkable. Great work!

  3. Great job! and such a small scale.

  4. Wow, you did a great job Boris. I’ve build this Italeri helicopter myself, just plain military green, so I understand the challenge you had with the colours. In 1/72 the Jet Ranger is really small. Super!

  5. Very neat work, Boris, I’d have hated all that fiddly masking, you’ve carried it out very well.

  6. Nice clean build with a colorful scheme! My daughter and family are moving to Croatia later this year!

  7. Hello Boris,
    Very neat construction of this small model. The Croatians have this chopper painted in a joyful scheme. Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  8. Nice work and masking the “kockice” on such a small model will always prove to be challenging! Dobar posao!
