Hi Bart
:) It was a coincident that I saw that Picture at FlightZone - that camo was the only reason why I finaly decided to start that kit. It was on the shelf for ages.

Until I wait for some paint I have on order, I will put the project on hold - and do some experiments with the digital camo. There a no decals or stencils for that livery, so I have to find my own way,....

Interesting one :)

I would love to see how you paint that DigiCam
7. April, 14:33
Dave Flitton
Maybe you can make some decals using your printer

Cant wait to see how this turns out. I like this little kit. Completed | Album by Menaivalley (1:72)

Cool camo.. and great subject - anti poaching!

Juergen Klinglhuber
@all - thx for the comments,...Dave, Tim - I am not sure yet, but I will to some trials with decals for sure.
7. April, 17:37
Juergen Klinglhuber
Tim - you are right, this is a nice little kit. And you did a nice build.
I did not really find the kit respectively the helicopter itself very interessing until I stumbbled over the pictures from Kruger National Park - Gazelle seems to be a hidden beauty.

do not forget to ballast the model at the front under the pit

Juergen Klinglhuber
Hi Laurent - thx for your advice, but it is already too late. :(
I closed the canopy yesterday and attached the skits for a trial,....a tailsitter - omg, a stupid mistake. I totaly forgot to consider this. Guess I will need to enter some fishing lead through the holes in the engine cover,....will let you know how that worked out.....
8. April, 16:53
Dave Flitton
Or, you can glue it to the base
8. April, 19:40
Juergen Klinglhuber
okay- some lead shots did a good job...it turned out ok. :)
9. April, 14:46
Łukasz Gliński
Let it dry well, I heard stories where after some longer time the lead reacted with CA.
9. April, 14:49
Matthew A
I've had lead and CA heat up so much as it's curing it melted the plastic.
9. April, 16:06

Juergen Klinglhuber
"You live and learn".... thx for all your inputs - never heard of exotherm reaction of CA & lead before.
No melted plastic so far & I really hope I was lucky and the kit survive unharmed.

Good work on the tail rotor shaft. Not easy drilling holes in small parts like that without ruining them.
11. April, 20:38
Matthew A
Impressive, most impressive

Mirko Römer
I'm really excited, this will look stunning!
12. April, 09:25
Juergen Klinglhuber
Thx for your interest and coments mates! I am excited too....I really wonder how it turns out at the end?!
13. April, 13:49
Greg Baker
Very nice work. I'm hoping to find one of these in 1/144, but I assume there'll be a lot of scratchbuilding, so I'm following along to see how this one turns out.

Nice work on the rotor and driveshaft

Glad you found my Gazelle rotorhead image useful :)
18. April, 19:09
Juergen Klinglhuber
Hi all -thx for your comments.
19. April, 10:34
Juergen Klinglhuber
Burkhard - sorry for that and I hope that is fine for you. Honestly spoken I did not take care whilst checking the internet for Gazelle Rotorheads. NOW, with your input I was checking again and recognized the copyrights on the lower right corner - so I checked out the link to your Homepage now: great source !!! Ton's of Aircraft details - super!
19. April, 10:39
Burkhard D
No worries, Juergen - fine for me. My website is made for scale modelers. :)

After spending nights to cut squares in 1/72 for a paint mask that would do he job I resigned. So I decided to ask for help: Thx to Daniel !! Check out his website https://brent-air-decals.at/ - a good source for decals with Austrian background btw.
He was of great help for me on this South African bird. Looking forward to start ....
26. April, 06:26
Erik De Smet
So, Daniel printed this decals just for you ?

@ Erik: It was fortuity that a read on his home page that he is doing "individual" requests as well - so if there is a good picture reference available I can highly recommend to get in touch with him, he might be interested.
@Laurent: I am curious about it - this week end is blocked with other stuff, but a trial on the vertical fin I did already. It looks great.

Gents - Thank you all for your kind comments.

Laurent - not sure about your question with respect to decal - l'autocollant. Fait maison (more or less, again thx's to Daniel) as there is no aftermarket product and painting seemed to be a nightmare.
Greetings to all - have a nice weekend.
