1/35 - Austrian Black Hawk - Academy

Recommended Posts

A question for those looking at the rotor head often...

We have blue, yellow and red blade coding... which is the fourth? Black? I'm used to green, but there doesn't seem to be any green here.

A big thanks goes to Daniel from Brent-air-decals http://brent-air-decals.at/kontakt/ who is taking the effort in satisfying my huge stencil and decal needs. A lot of stencils are not covered in other production sheets which I wish to have as these add a lot of details and components coming to life. This is my latest wishlist:

For size reference, the red crosses are 1,5 x 1,5 mm.

Thank you Daniel!

Meanwhile the pilots seat is getting in shape. A few more details and it will be ready for paiting.

That's why it was so hard to see the code. On the tail rotor its visible, but might as well be torn off, no sight of it on the main rotor, as on all my photos its in the shadow. Thank you.

The color stripes are painted on The PC rods about 3/4's of the way up the rod and the mounting brackets on the awash plate were painted the colors also. I think that was all that was painted.

Thanks! Got those codes sorted and I think I should get my hsnds on them soon. Meanwile, I got new goodies from CC (thank you Chris M)! And also stencils for my Blacky. The meshes will do I think, especially on the tail rotor GBX cover.

Thank you Shep!

I got into some trouble. When a guy thinks everything is fine... the model b*tchslaps your face and goes FU. This happened earlier today, when I fixed the seats to the cockpit and tryed to join the fuselage halfs together... and found out my interior walls are from some ancient variant of B_H. Austrian version doesn't have a fuel-drum-like shape at the top.

There was quite some adult words while I was using my proxon to cut away a lot of resin. It looks convincing now, I'm happy.

Only a few details are missing like the storage compartment box with ICS, some wires and fire extinguishers.

Looks good I like it.

I ve noticed that bad language and modelling often come together.

Man, that cockpit sure looks nice. All those emergency kits pop out like a soar thumb on those black seats.
