Sikorsky UH-71 Kestrel with photos
« on: October 23, 2021, 02:52:10 pm »
Based on the 1/72 Italeri EH-101 Cormorant kit with parts from the UH-60 Desert Hawk and Matchbox Bell OH-58D Aeroscout.
It's an on going build, this what I have come up with. In the background is the Revell 3D jigsaw puzzle of Hogwarts Castle, I added a few stickers to hide the gaps and Puff the magic dragon.

I've started adding paint from Hataka acrylic Light Stone.

From a different angle, could be renamed the EH-101 Merlin AH.1

The other side

That pic's about five times larger than my laptop!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

My tablet died, so I am using my new phone, I have tried using the width÷600 but that is a bit hit and miss.
