    1/72 Revell, started this build 03-2016, I modified the main, tail rotors and gun mount with brass tube and wire, the exhausts with plastic tube, finished in MM enamels, still adding decals and details, will also add some Hellfire missiles.

    Great model Allan. I like the modifications you did, specialy the exhausts look great now. Nice interior with the cockpit details picked our nicely. I wasn’t aware that these Tigers are in use in Australia.

    I really like how your camouflage looks. It’s a nice looking contrast with the decals. I like it ………

    Thanks Louis, not the usual green for an Aussie aircraft !!

    I’ll call this one finished, more weaponry is optional !!

  • Allan J Withers said 1 month, 3 weeks ago:

    Now with the optional weaponry !! Hellfire missiles on the inner pylons and FZ 2.75″ rocket pods on the outer pylons, but without rockets as they would be too heavy !!!

    Again, fantastic work Allan. Clours are stunning and all the details you added are just great.
    Are they really flying with the empty rocket pods due to the weight??

  • Allan J Withers said 2 weeks, 3 days ago:

    Thanks Ferry, they usually have one each of the large rocket pods and hellfire missiles on the inner pylons and two smaller rocket pods on the outer pylons but they are different to what’s in the kit, I may have to scratch build them !!!
