19 - 1/72 Italeri RAH-66 Comanche

February 18, 2022 · in Aviation · · 11 · 2.2K

What a fun build this was, the Italeri Comanche

Only 2 prototypes were ever made and the one was black and the other Helo Drab. I decided to do something a little different and created a What if US version.

This Helicopter took over from the AH-1Z Vipers for the Marines, provide more stealth and superior firepower.
I hope you enjoy.

  2. Very nice result, Anthony @anthonyricco
    Love the weathering.

  3. Awesome work on this one Anthony. Sad that this gunship never entered service. I like the details you added to it. Well done!

  4. Very cool concept Anthony @anthonyricco! And the model looks great too! Exquisite work Anthony. ?

  5. Cool looking helo! I guess it went the way of the old AH56A Cheyenne, never to be in service.

    • OOOOh now that was a good looking helicopter - much better than the Comanche - would love to find a kit of that to build.
      I'm glad they are going ahead with the SB-1 Defiant though - thats also really cool looking.

      • Here you go, This is an Atlantis reissue of the old Aurora kit. It's very basic.@anthonyricco
