I'm calling this done,  based on the Airfix Fairey Rotodyne kit with Italeri Boeing MH-47E SOA Chinook parts, cockpit glazing painted masking tape cut to size (nearly worked) a mixture of decals, acrylic Hataka paints. My second finished aircraft model .

The folding radome looks much better painted black.

This side shows that I have tried to tidy up the masking tape

Err I can't get to that bit!

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Well if ever anyone sells the Fairey Rotodyne model in 1/48 scale it would be an interesting opportunity to fit some electric engines.
Thanks for your comments Captain Canada  :thumbsup:


One of my favorite aircraft, thanks for putting one together.  Great idea, adding parts from the Chinook.   :thumbsup:
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.
