Gallery 1/48 H-34 US Navy Rescue

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

Thanks for the opportunity to join. I recently found this GB, so I thought I would ask. Here are some WIP shots of my H-34 (HSS-1N) that I've been working on for a few weeks.

The kit is excellent in my opinion. The fit is superb, but unforgiving. I am not normally given to much in the way of detailing, but after being inspired by some really nice projects I decided to give it a go.


My only aftermarket is the Wessex Blade Fold set made by Scale Warships, which is pretty cool! Again, in my opinion.

I cut out the solid portions of plastic for the PE.



Threw in a little wiring harness in the cabin, and some wiring for the engine.



The kit doesn't provide collectives, so I scratched them, as well as the rotor brake handle.



I also added some wiring for the winch and float tanks.


And recently worked up the rotor fold set.


I'm new to this forum, so I hope I didn't post too many pics, or too large. Please correct me if I did.

Thanks for looking,

Thanks for the nice comments guys!

I got her all prettied up with paint and decals. Another coat or two of Future and it'll be time to weather her.

Sorry about the poor quality camera work, but that's all I have for the time being.



Thanks for looking,

Well, I finally got her finished. This is a really great kit. I only wish I had better skills so I wouldn't have had to fight myself so much. In the end patience prevailed. I think. Far from perfect, but I had a lot of fun.

This is the first time that I recall that I've done scratch work and wiring, other than some seat belts. The ScaleWarship Wessex rotor fold set looked like it was going to be daunting in the beginning but turned out to be very easy to use.

These are not the best quality photos because I only have my phone's camera right now.







Thanks for looking,
