  1. Another very smartly turned-out helicopter, Dirk, the colour scheme looks great, and your background really shows off the model very well.

  2. Well done Dirk. What scale is that? If that’s 1/144 I’m super impressed with the paint and detail you’ve done with this model.

  3. Hi Tom,
    Thanks for your positive response.
    Scale is 1/72. Have a nice weekend.
    Regards, Dirk

  4. STUNNING!!! You did an amazing job on this one Dirk. Well done!!!

  5. Great job, Dirk! I wish Xtracolor was still available here in the US!

  6. Hello John,
    Thanks for your response. Xtra Color, it needs careful handling (thinning) . But the end result is a good layer of extremely strong paint. Still a few distributors in The Netherlands.

  7. Great looking little helo Dirk! Well done sir. 🙂

  8. WOW….now THAT’S a real “eye-catcher” – outstanding finishing work (I love it). 🙂

  9. So cool, what more can I say

  10. This is really nice. Stunning work.

  11. Dirk great finishes on very attractive and eye catching liveries.

  12. Beautiful job! Got to ride in one alonnng time ago.

  13. It’s already been said, but this is a beautifully done model! Great work.

  14. Fantastic piece of work. I can easily imagine this chopper cruising over Deception Pass just north of the base–because I live a short distance away from there.

  15. Absolutely gorgeous, Dirk. This ‘chopper model is superb … as yours always are!

  16. Dirk, you have a way with helicopters, this being a good example. Beautiful!

  17. Very nice Dirk. What an excellent model. I liked the added detail.

  18. Hello Julian and all other contributors,
    Thanks for the positive responses. It is difficult to see, but installed in the rear is a “Extra Long Range”fuel tank, placed on a sliding pallet.
    If you look good, you can see the number three on the tank inside the fuselage.
    Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  19. Professional, strong work and a definite candidate for model of the month. Wrote tail end Charlie.
