1/72 Alouette III - Portuguese Air Force

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow modellers,

Here I present you my construction of 1/72 Aloeuttes III from the 552 Squadron of the Portuguese Air Force.

The kits are from Heller, the quality of them are not so good but with the photoetch from Extratech and some dedication, pacience and steady work it can come out a pretty nice machine.

Reduce the thickness of plastic for opening and detail holes



From the two engine versions I chose to turn them in one with “free†exhaust

You've done a lovely job on that pair of Alouettes. The Heller kit is not that bad, it is just a little basic in places. It is a great model to build if you are into super-detailing. The engine is fully exposed and the interior has no quilting either so you can add all that detail if you want.
