Alouette 3 "Sécurité Civile" - Fujimi
This is my SA 316 Alouette 3, "Securité Civile" version, of the Fujimi Kit. The plastic is of very poor quality, and difficult to work. This kit is very old and very basic and it needs a bit of scratch to make a decent "Securité Civile" version (winch, lateral basket, homing antenna, etc...). I've use the FFSMC stencils, which are low quality : mainly too big (perhaps for a real 1/48 kit). The roundel are, also, not properly centered.
I'wanted to built this kit, to remind me when this Helico (call sign "Dragon 38") was flying over my house, when I'was young, while going to save people in the french alps. Good souvenir... ;<).
Thanks for looking at this kit.
Very nice indeed
Very nice result - and the personal memories attached to it make the effort all the more worthwhile! Bien fait!
I agree with everyone above!
