Nice twin-boom helicopter, with twin floats moreover :thumbsup:
Is this the Mach2 kit 1/72? (I have considered buying a copy 2 years ago then I forgot)

How does that kit build up Ericr?

I have one, but I've not really looked at it too deeply yet.
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! :)

Regards
Kit

According to Ericr's result, this kit is perfect, unless Ericr is a magician ;)

well, I would say : as usual with Mach2  ;D
actually I think it is hard to make something very clean I guess,
but for my style of build (!), they are not too uneasy, the fit is quite reasonable ...
so when I find a cheap 2nd hand one I go for it

the Mariner shown previously is a Mach2

and they have very original subjects, so I contuinue to like them  ;)
