I once did a 1/72 Kiowa... from then on I admire anyone who has the eyes, fingers and guts to do it :)
Nice result too, Mirko
21. June, 13:07
Mirko Römer
Thanks Sergej! :) The most challenging part was the horrible fit of the clear parts. I think it's time for a new OH-58A/D in 1/72nd scale. ClearProp, AZ-Model...do you hear me?
After all, I think I should have sanded down the rivets - better luck next time. So I tried to play a little with oil colours to replicate the worn look of the original.
Decals came from Print Scale and Leading Edge, some scratch parts in the cockpit and with the antennas. Base colours were AK Real Colors Field Green and Gelboliv (late).

Some of the last things have been done: fixing everything and spraying it matt. But suddenly I can't choose photo 129 as the teaser, it's stuck on "first photo". Is this a bug?

For what I remember, putting in place the canopy was the culprit. With more preparation and dry fit testing it must be ok. But back in time I was expecting an easy build. I have seen beautiful pics of this kit, so it can be done :)

It is easy to get the missile set up wrong so just really look at the clearences and good modelling Chris.

Hello, I am trying to get the Bell 206L-1 Long Ranger II, resin model kit from TopGun models, but I am not able to purchase the Item, I am new on the web site, am I doing something wrong or I have to do something different to get this resin kit?

Hi andres, This site doesnt sell kts. It does have links to sites that do or allow you to see if other members have this kit and may consider tradeing it
4. October 2014, 19:30
Andres Abarca
Thanks for the explanation about this, I though this web site has that option. Now I need to know where I can find the model kit of this Long Ranger Helicopter. I am looking for it because when I search the Bell 206 it only appears the Jet Ranger Model. Thanks for the help with this.

Your welcome Andres, Looking at it, I suspect its a future release and may not yet be available.

this is one of those kits I am having difficulty getting hold of in the UK along with the OH-6 and the regular Jet Ranger in 1:35th scales. I can find it on sale abroad but the postage, import duty, vat and handling fees etc. make it very expensive to buy them, oh well, I can wait I suppose as I have enough projects to be getting on with :)

This heli is a good subject for putting micro RC gear into though, the big shroud at the top would hide the Mcpx swashplate nicely :)

12. February 2014, 15:16
Holger Kranich
Hi Jeremy!
Be careful what you wish... ;)
When you try to get the fuselagehalves together, you have to grind down a part of the starboard dashboard for about 3-4mm...
But when this doesnt bother you, you have a nice model in the end...
Cheers Holger

I discover that during my build of "Black Death" and you are right they look nice when done.... You have one you want to get rid of?
12. February 2014, 15:32
Holger Kranich
Ah, ok you already know that issue! Thats good!
Unfortunately, i dont have one to swap or sell...
Some weeks ago i wanted to buy the AFV Club Kiowa, but then figured out it is the Academy/MRC sprues... :(
Very sad, because i love the OH-58... ;)
12. February 2014, 15:48

I believe ALL of the AFV Club Helo's are just repops of the Academy Versions... I agree, Wish they had their own molds....

Hi, this is Joseph Osborn from Fireball Modelworks. Please note that this decal set is actually 1/48 scale, not 1/72. I do not produce this decal set in 1/72 scale because there is no 1/72 kit on the market that represents that particular version of the OH-58D. I have the decals in 1/48 for the Italeri kit and 1/35 for the Academy kit.

Thanks!

woow, that are quite expensive rates for just a decal set :( leme think about it
12. September 2013, 15:03
Juan M Leria
I just want to say that no matter there is no a straight-of-the-box model, I we want a updated Kiowa we'll do it as Ice has done with the Bö 105. For us, most times the major drawback for a project is the lack of decals.
Even more, the lack of an accurate AH-1G model in 1/72 wasn't an obstacle for you to produce these nice sets, isn't it?

"Accurate" can be subjective, Juan. Both the Monogram and Airfix 1/72 AH-1G's are nice models that look very accurate to me.

Zimmermaniac, international shipping is just an awful mess now with the high cost of fuel and the lack of a surface mail option. But my shipping rate is a flat rate, so it helps to buy more stuff :D
12. September 2013, 20:42
Juan M Leria
Airfix? No such one; maybe do you think in Matchbox? :)
Anyway, both kits lack a lot details of the machines depicted (tail rotor side, 'Sugar' scoop...)

Interior is weathered and finished, now up to the fuselage halves! They are going to get fittet with some Sd.kfz. 181 Panther pe,s! ;)
Crazy? Oh yes, but it makes sense, you will see!!!;)

Holger Kranich
Oops, please just delete "181"!
6. February 2013, 00:20
Holger Kranich
Today I had my personal "Stalingrad"...
The MRC moldings showed a lot of bad fit around the cockpit and observation electronics. I didn't had to sand it, I had to grind it down without remorse! But nevertheless, I will not give up!
The clearparts got some maskol and tomorrow I'll manage to assemble the weaponry. I swear, I go nuts with this fkn kit if the fit won't get better!
To my advantage, the building with Thomas and Frank is a great relieve and we all learned from each other ( ok, I learned the most...)!
Till tomorrow!;)

AWESOME work Christoph!!! Now if only some aftermarket company could come up with the .50cal side-mounted gun pod for this kit, that would be great!

The long awaited rebox of the Esci Bell 206/ JetRanger. Imho shape- and detailwise a tad better than the Fujimi 206.
Besides the military style low skid gear the high skid landing gear and the landing gear with the pop out flotation gear are still included. Italeri has left out the inflated floats though. The doors have the smaller military windows and the tail has the open tail rotor transmission. For a civil style machine, the Whirlybird conversion (tail rotor transmission cover and civil doors with bigger windows) is needed.
19. November 2012, 16:15

Here is the beginning of the review from scalerotors:

Academy issued kit #2195 OH-58D Kiowa Warrior "Black Death" which is an exact reboxing of the older MRC model. The depicted version is based on the earliest version of the Kiowa Warrior. It is a very nice kit which is accurate for the early version based on the 1985 time frame.
