Eastland WE211 Mavellic ()

A little bit of history of the future:
Just in the middle of the post digital age The Finnish Defense Forces bought a neat successor to NH90 helicopter. The leading artificial general intelligence (AGI) selected Eastland WE211 Mavellic. Main use for this chopper is massive giant battle robot transportation and funny performing in airshow displays. The two-pilot system ensures reliable handlingfor both engines (90 degree rotated Vertol System) . Two guns are included while this is a military vehicle. Performance of this eggbeater is unknown and also irrelevant.

Eastland WE211 Mavellic 1/72 model kit by
Japanese Max Factory has created and molded this very nice model kit. Easy to build, nice fit, only a few sink marks - no much use for glue or putty/sanding. Base paint Ultimate Primer (Badger Stynylrez), camouflage using Vallejo Acrylics. Minimal aging and weathering while mimicking almost brand new unit. Some leaks and grease in undercarriage compartments though. All in all - very relaxing model to build.
