27 - 1/48 Fuji Aerospatiale Alouette III

December 30, 2022 · in Aviation · · 20 · 1.2K

I got this kit with the cockpit started but really like this so I wanted to do something nice and interesting. I decided to do the interesting scheme of the Malasian Air force.

Was a lot of fun masking and painting this one up. Enjoyed the build but it is an old kit so a few issues.

Nothing that can't be overcome though.
