    1/48 Jet Ranger Bubble Windows

    Sorry Chris, not really sure what you mean with bubble windows: the newer type of JetRanger/ 206- pilot and passenger windows that are not flat, but 'stick out a bit'? Or the type of window on the pilot door that is used for vertical reference during aerial crane work?

    No love for OH-58A

    Guess you mean made an A model in 1/48th Reddog-03? I am anxiously awaiting the re-release of the OH58/ B206 by Italeri, but afaik it hasn't materialized yet... But you're right: if I were to build a model OH58A I would prefer the 1/48th Italeri/ Esci over the 1/32 Revell. The Italeri has the correct type windows and has high skid landing gear included.

    1/48 Kitty Hawk AS365 question.

    What Norbert says!! I forgot and came to regret it later. Also agree on Froggy's posts. The Dauphin in real life is a helo with beautiful sleek and aerodynamic lines, and I would like to build it like that, not with doors and panels sticking out. After building panels and doors on the KH kit closed, the thing looks like a WWII- tank and you have to carefully sand everything flush again, thereby removing any surface detail. Imho the kit could have done with less detail, but I know that's subjective: I am a lazy modeller... Gertjan
  5. You must have good eyes Loach Driver! I finished the Special Hobby Hughes 300/TH55 some years ago and it's close to microscopic... Very glad with a 300 in 1/48 or 1/32 though. At last!!! Gertjan

    Bad year...

    Now that is a nice release! No particular fan of the R44, but Stransky's choice of subject imho definitely beats yet another Black Hawk, Cobra, Huey or you name 'em... Now if the kit would get an upgrade to 1:48, it would be even better!
  7. Great work Wafu!!! I will be following this one! Gertjan

    Dreaming for.....1/72 resin wants!

    Maybe the fuselage and rotor parts to at last make a real Cougar/ EC225 from the Heller or the Italeri kit?
  9. Watching in admiration. Magnificent work!!! Gertjan

    1/48 UH-72 Lakota - work in progress

    Great work as usual John!! At last a 145 in the proper scale, and looking good. I have never understood Revell's tendency to release these kits in 1/32. I would prefer a civil livery myself, like the scheme hawkwrench provided. But I guess I'd be outnumbered by the military aviation fans on ARC! Gertjan

    1/48 MBB BK-117

    Whoa! There I was thinking you'd just fabricate a floor and some seats and smack the rest of the parts together, but: no, more work! Nice work so far! I will be following this one! Gertjan

    Yes I guess so. Even the smaller manufacturers (eg. Whirlybirds) that in this case could make a difference, hold their horses because the bigger guys (Revell, Italeri) may just take the complete market if they release the model after all. I have Always been quite positive about Revell: about the only manufacturer to venture into civil helicopter models. But after the second version of the 1:32 EC135 all is quiet on the Revell helicopter side; I can imagine that the sale figures of their EC135- and 145- models will not raise their enthusiasm on releasing another (civil) helicopter kit.

    The subject of (no) kit of an AW139 was discussed some time ago on BritModeller. The owner of Whirlybird Models posted that releasing a (resin) AW139 kit was too risky for his company, with the chance of Revell (eventually maybe) releasing one. So I guess it's up to Revell, although ofcourse they haven't released a new helicopter model for years… The fact that the USAF ordered the AW139 does improve the chance of a release of an AW139 model ofcourse.
