1/48 Hasegawa SH-3H
This was the first model I purchased after a 20 year hiatus. I started building it about 12 years ago and detailed the inside, but it turns out you can't see it through those tiny windows. I shelved it again and it sat in my storage room for years. I finally finished it days before last year's competition. Luckily, I had picked up some new techniques and incorporated them into this model. I wasn't very happy with it for several reasons known only to me, but to my utmost surprise it won best rotary wing aircraft last year. I was shocked to say the least.
