  1. Really came out well Allan. Colorful markings, nice paint work.

  2. Nice build, Allan...puts me in mind of the Paisecki (sp) "Flying Banana"...(wonder who copied who?). 🙂

  3. Looks good Allan. Did one of these myself a while back using the Italeri kit with Leading Edge decals.

    • Thanks Phil, have you posted yours ? in helicopters !

      • No I didn't. Due to inaccuracies and missing details for the Canadian version (I'm a real stickler in that regard) I never photographed it, and it's a days journey back in the display case now. Some day maybe. You can get good detail photos of it now.

  4. Allan, really good build, great choice of scheme. You'd see this one coming a long way off.

  5. Nice build! Such an oddly designed aircraft...!

  6. A real beauty sir.

  7. A truly excellent result Allan! Red is such a difficult colour to put on a model - and it's gloss too!

  8. Like mentioned above: "Oddly designed"
    But build to perfection.
