WOW! the gap on the windscreen was horrible. What did you do to close up the gaps?

Hello Bryn Crandell, yes it was really frightening, first one side of the straight piece with Revell glue dry, but it pressure from the front on everything, from the solid piece then each strut piece by piece and always the good old Revell glue, he holds better and more stable than the Tamiya, but without gap it does not work, from below it needs about 1.5 mm filling

Hey Jens, thanks for the link. You did a phenomenal job building this bird up, especially liked the wiring/hydraulics plumbing through the cabin. Also the detail on the cockpit instrument cluster, looks like engine number 2 is running a little hot! That is a LOT of detail. It's a shame really, if you didn't have the photos as proof, it would be very difficult to see it. But I know why you work so hard to make it look so real, the satisfaction of pulling it off and the challenge, it looks awesome! Same goes with the engines. I did notice that there is a line of filler around the entire engine strut, did you have to cut out the kit engines and fit an aftermarket engine?

Either way, she looks gorgeous, is she big as well? Some people that have built the MH/CH-53E in 48 scale, talk about how huge the kit is. Just wonder if this is even bigger? Be a while before I get one, as I have other projects in line before her, but it also is a matter of finding one when I have the money to buy it, just hope those two variables meet soon.

Hello Anthony and thanks for the compliments :)
but in turn, there are no resin parts installed,
the spatula on the turbine nacelle is an acrylic spatula https://picclick.com/Perfect..2.html#&gid=1&pid=1, easy and quick to process
Cockpit and weapons are taken from the Eduard BiG Ed Set or improved in the self-built something
the "burn marks" at the turbine exit are pure colors of Alclad a brass and aluminum, to Mr. Color of Gunze something Ror, blue, brown, pure yellow and different shades of gray
I have used cannulas 1.2 mm 0.8 mm and brass tube 0.6 mm as tube for the Seten weapons
The cables and wires are made of copper and lead wire, thickness between 0.4 and 0.8 mm
Base colors Exterior Olive Drab by Model Master, Interior Light Gray Mr. Color and Interior Green by Alclad
almost forgotten, silver wire 0,6 mmfor the feathers of the cannons

Thank you friends for the nice words :) The AHC 47 Chinook was such a model I was looking for a long time, but the BiG Ed Set by Eduard was a hit and miss that could be found like gold on the bench, the big disappointment was then the plastic from Italeri, from so modern forms so many flaws, but it's done and it was the model in 2018 with the most extra work :) Your compliments will make you forget all the trouble, but the next CH 47 Chinook will be 1:35 Trumpeter probably has the better shapes :D
