  1. Whenever I get the opportunity I buy these 1:32 OH-6's or JetRangers. Although it's true they lack interior detail, they build up ok and make me feel like a kid again. And, in case of the JetRanger: while still anxiously awaiting Italeri's re- release of the 1:48 Esci JetRanger, the occasional Revell JetRanger is the only game in town. I have built several, and as Oliver says: the beam between the front windows looks too clunky. IIRC the Revell 1:32 Huey had exactly the same problem. On some Revell JetRanger kits I have replaced the outdated low skid landing gear by Heli-Scale-Quality high skid landing gear. They also have high skid gear for the OH-6 if you'd wish so. Good luck on your build Bounce!
  2. Wow, magnificent work (cockpit too)!
  3. Beautiful Ishmael! Indeed an old kit that needs a lot of work.
  4. Impressive work Ismael! I remember the Revell kit in some aspects was a real pain. I built about six of them and f.i. have never achieved to remove the tail rotor blades of the sprue without each time breaking one or more.... The rotor hub always looked too small to me, but your work looks amazing! Keep up the good work!
  5. I second that! I have quite a collection of books related to helicopter flying, and this definitely is one of the best! Not only an insight in the golden era (and place!) of helicopter flying, but the man also knows how to write. Nice find, looks interesting! Although I have also never had a Facebook account, things like this tend to waver my convictions...
  6. That is some impressive scratch building!! Gertjan
  7. Wow Zac, great! I wonder what would make a childhood happier: growing up in a beautiful country like NZ, or being around helicopters all day?!? At that age all I could do to watch stuff fly was throwing my oatmeal through the room!
  8. Whoa was it that long ago… I can still vividly remember these first tv reports. Indeed, this 206L would be a fitting subject, LD!!!
  9. So right Jeff! lol, thanks for the support Zac! Nice one! Possibilities are countless.
  10. Errr.. sorry for the thread drift, but... for what Aircrane Jeff? I don't see that many Revell Skycranes anymore, or am I missing plans for a re-release? TIA!
  11. Same here! I will not make the same mistake again thinking that the kit will stay in the shops for years to come..!
  12. Now that would be terrific news!! I would love to see a (preferably 1:48) kit of the 206L or 407. Thanks for the heads up Zac!
  13. Nice find Sabre Freak! The book is interesting too John. Never knew that the H-43 was used as a civil helo! Although the kit was not on my list, this changes things.
