Ian.
Looking good, glad that frame went well. Reminded me of a truck like chassis where I always seem to fail.
Office and those figures look good.

Hi Ian
An excellent idea to go with the box art. Forced perspective is something I've heard of but not seen done so really interesting. Great start on the helicopter. The tail does look rather fiddly and fragile. Pilots work a treat.

Just caught up with the build Ian. The Saladin looks great, nice addition of the tow rope etc. Good luck with the Sioux, looking good so far, should complement the scene well.

My GB Sioux took me months... You're going to crack this one out in no time Ian, nice work
Thanks Joe it is a nice little kit, I've had no problem with it at all (so far ), just needed to fill a small gap between the glass doors and main bubble canopy, and i mean small.

Looking really good Ian. On mine the canopy overhung the front of the cockpit, and the doors didn't fit at all, so maybe I got a bad one. Otherwise it's a nice kit to build , isn't it.

Hi Ian, nice AH-1. I would have loved getting those figures you got but I had to contend with modifying mine which you'll see in my UH-34 dio blog.

I may have a AH-1 in the stash...two in fact , one is a MASH version and the other has flat fuel tanks. Watching how you do yours for my future build.

Cheers,
Richard

Got the helicopter completed, now just a matter of getting the base done and weathering them both.
I'm not happy with the glue marks on parts of the canopy, but I'm sure I can hide them a bit better with some dirt.
