Gary Edwards Thanks...I already had gone through that website. It is really handy, but it doesn't have the Chinook. Anyone???

Bill Gilman I noticed something odd...the US Army Chinook is kit 04413, it's very clear on the box art. But in the instructions lists, kit 04413 is a Ka-58. I've not known Revell to recycle kit numbers. Strange.

Bill Gilman For what it's worth, I found one forum posting on-line that stated the Revell Chinook kit 04413 is a re-pop of the old Matchbox kit (if true, the Scalemates entry is wrong as it shows it as a re-box of Revell "new tool" 04419). You could try searching for Matchbox instructions. Another thought is that 04413 could be a re-box of the Italeri kit (my preference), as Revell do that often. Also, didn't Airfix re-box the Italeri kit too?

Gary Edwards Thanks Bill. I'll look around at other Mfg's to see if it is a rebox. The plastic has 'Made in ...... ', the country is blobbed out, so I can't tell if it's England, Italy, or where. I have a Trumpeter CH-47A kit, and even though there isn't much external difference between that and the D, I'd still like to get the basic instructions along with the paint scheme and decal placement. Anyway, again, thanks for the tip.

Gary Edwards Well, it is a rebox of the Matchbox kit. I forgot; I have the kit. All of the parts are exactly the same (except the matchbox has the different colors of plastic). I even noticed on the inside of the fuselage 'Matchbox' on both. I guess that settles the instruction issue since I have them. The markings can't be that hard to figure out. Thanks everyone for the input.

Bill Gilman Good, we solved that. Now we need to figure out the mystery of the duplicate kit numbers. I had a look at the box art for the Ka 58 and it indeed says 04413.
