I do like what your doing with the Italeri kit, and I see that red roo decal is there too.
9. June 2016, 09:23
Antony Galenianos I am glad you like it Kerry. I will try to make it as it is today in the Greek War museum.
9. June 2016, 20:13
Kerry COX REALLY. ?? :-O I have no idea about what is in the Greek War Museum relating to the Bell-64. :-o Can you give me more info as to what it is please, as this sounds really interesting. :)
9. June 2016, 21:04
Antony Galenianos There is only one heli in the entrance of the museum. All the other exhibits are military and not of the air-force.
10. June 2016, 06:27
Antony Galenianos I just uploaded a photo of the Bell in the museum so you can have a look.

Michel Huijghe I see a wire that must be green instead of yellow. :) Just joking. Impressive build.
2. September 2014, 16:42
Aaron Liles Thanks very much guys. This has been a challenge! The framing is a bit wonky, I'll try and straighten it out at some point. Michel, my reference pictures show a yellow wire, maybe the photo was over exposed :P :D
2. September 2014, 18:55
Choppa Nutta looking at it sitting next to that penny it looks impossibly small, must have been very difficult to get it as good as you have !!
I shall not mention boom droop as I don't think I could get any where near this good with PE at this scale, cockpit looks really good :)
2. September 2014, 19:18
Aaron Liles Thanks Choppa. The last two shots are just dry fits, hence the droop on the tail. However, I did struggle to keep things parallel on the top of the framing near the avionics (?) boxes
2. September 2014, 19:55
2. September 2014, 20:51
Aaron Liles *update* canopy fitted :) currently building some doors. I took Choppa nutta's advice and made an adjustment to the tail boom. I was reluctant to do this at first as the framing was a right pain to deal with, but I'm glad I did. Cheers Choppa :)

Nice one mate but is that a fire extiguisher in front of the passengers pedals? Don't remember it being there when I worked on them(64-76). Used to be next to the pilot.

Kevin Farrell The Queen Mother of modern Medevac. Think of all the progress that medicine has made by the implementation of air-evacuation and getting the seriously wounded to the MASH within the "golden hour" of saving their lives. Beats the hell out riding on the hood of a jeep.

Igor Lyash Hi, Pappy!
Nice job! Considering the size of the model, everything is done perfectly! But the tail frame should be to scale.

cheers,
