Looks real nice, though you should use something other than a white background. The kit almost disappears in some of the pics. :thumbsup:

This is really amazing. The photo-etch work you did on the tail is really difficult to do and it looks fantastic.

 

Thanks for providing such detailed pictures. It takes real confidence to do that.

Wow! I'm looking at this as I contemplate the MH-53E I just bought. Nice job on the rivets! What tool did you use?

Very nice deluge!  I have seen these in person and you have captured it extremely well.  Whereas USN & USMC Super Stallions tend to be rather dirty, the Japanaese keep theirs very clean.  R/ Dutch

Well yes! Though nothing  so dirty as compared to USN & USMC machines.  We called them "Shitters" because of the mess they made.  This JMSDF example seems to be returning from a flight and still taxiing in to the flight line.  Give the overnight shift a chance and they will have it cleaned up pretty nice!  I wonder how their MCH-101 Merlins look?
