As part of a group build of helicopters a few months ago, I gathered several kits from various sources. The build burned me out on helicopters for a while, but I recently decided to reduce the stock a little.
I airbrushed Model Master enamel thinned with lacquer thinner for the OD, and their Exhaust Buffing Metalizer brushed on the rotor blades, tail rotor shaft, mini-gun (which I decided to leave off) and landing gear. Cockpit and interior used MM enamels brushed on.
I had trouble with the door windows; they just fell through the openings, and I had to install some clear acetate strips inside the openings to mount them.
Now, I once again say that I’m through with spinning wing type kits!
