CD48148 - 1/48 CH-47 Chinook

Recommended Posts

I've got some photos of "My Old Lady" too - probably not as thorough as Jaypack44 but I'll offer them in case they're of any help.

Any chance of doing the Royal Thai Army CH-47A & CH-47D?

Siam Scale did them in 1/72 & 1/35, but not 1/48.

This sheet is almost done - it ended up being a sheet mostly for the CH-47F,  now that we have an Italeri kit for this variant in 1/48 scale. Ten current US Army options, a couple Canadian examples from Afghanistan with nose art (including Miss Behavin'), current CH-147Fs, RAF HC.2s and perhaps one or two international examples. I will post profiles soon.

Good to see some RCAF options Kursad. Don't have the CH-47F yet but maybe now is the time to get it. I do have the first issue though and will plan something else for that.

The Canadian options on the sheet are "2 for Hooking", "Jack'd Up" and "Miss Behavin'"; and two modern CH-147F; one with UN markings from Op PRESENCE in Mali. 

 

There are 10 US Army options; all of which are current (2008-present) CH-47F models. 

 

I thought I'd cover the most modern variant first, and work on gathering more refs for older  (Vietnam to Desert Storm) markings over time.

Nice Canadian Ds and Fs on one sheet. I all ready built 2 for hooking but will get a sheet for the current Fs.

There are a couple of elements that I need to refine, but this one is mostly done. I will finish the design as soon as I clear the huge backlog of orders that I need to ship within the next couple of days.

 

I managed to squeeze 17 options on this sheet: Ten US Army CH-47Fs,  three RCAF CH-47Ds (with nose art) from Afghanistan, two RCAF CH-147Fs (you will need the Italeri CH-47F and the large sponsons from an MH-47 kit) , one RAF Chinook HC.2 with 100th year markings, and one Australian CH-47F.

 

There is a second, all-black sheet (not shown) with airframe stencils.

Have I missed something here, I wasn’t aware of any 1/48 MH-47 kit out there? 

 

I hope I’m wrong as I want to build a CH-47SD and need the large sponsons.

I must have been thinking about the 1/72 kits - not sure if there are large sponsons in 1/48 yet. I will leave the CH-147F options in there as someone will inevitably do the large sponsons.

I am in for one for sure. An RCAF CH-147 will be on my desk at some point. 

 

 side topic, any idea when the F-82 sheet will be ready? I have 3 kits waiting in the wings for these decals.

These are fantastic Kursad!

I’m just sorry I couldn’t contribute references, all my pics are boring pre-9/11 airframes with vanilla markings.
I’ll be ordering several sets!

Awesome work by Kursad!

 

I was able to provide references for the Canadian Chinooks! Glad I was able to help!
