    Allan,

    I remember building that kit when it was first released. I put it together and brush painted it in an afternoon. Sure brings back some fond memories.

    Looking good – I like the drilling of the pods, it’s that sort of attention to detail that makes all the difference!

    This little chopper has all of the trademarks of an Allan Withers build…………. Crystal clear canopy, 1/72 scale, and flawless paint !!! I can always pick your work out from others. Looks great my friend…….and drilling out the rocket pods was a very nice touch.

    I’ll bet it will come to life as soon as you install the rotors………….. Looking good Allan.

  • Allan J Withers said 1 month, 1 week ago:

    Thanks Louis, a bit lifeless at the moment !!

  • Erik Gjørup said 1 month ago:

    Shiny! looking forward to the finished chopper. Well done so far especially with an old kit! ’68 molds as far as I recall.

  • Allan J Withers said 1 month ago:

    Thanks Erik, yes 1968 molds 1988 box, decals are on, needs a coat of flat clear and some detailing !!
