  1. Alan, another one of your fine looking helos! And this one so small in size.

  2. This is a truly beautiful job, my friend @kalamazoo!
    Amazing how great a 1/72 little helo can look!
    Thanks for sharing the progress shots, as well: loved the drive shaft replacement, among others.

  3. Great job.
    A tiny helicopter in this scale but created with precisement.
    Well done.

  4. Very delicate and realistic looking build Alan.

  5. That midget turned out nice! Seems the molding in 1/72 is better than with Italeri´s 1/48 kit. Built the big one a while ago and had to remove lots of fine flash on the tailboom parts.

  6. Small is beautiful ! Great detailing and subject matter

  7. Looks so petit Allan, especially when you are holding it.
    Great processive photos, thanks for posting.

  8. Great model of a really cool helo, Allan (@kalamazoo). I have liked this helo since I first saw in the old MASH movie, and then the weekly series. The high vis panels break up the green nicely.

  9. Very neat work as always, I love the shadows created in the photographs, they really add to the realism, definitely liked. P.S. That's three Georges in a row.

  10. Nicely done Allan! Always appreciate your focus on 1/72 😉

  11. Wow, really nice work. Looks great!
