Very handsome indeed, though you fly it as if the 40's?

Pretty in pink, what.

Really? I assumed an artifact of the camera, and more a red or crimson.

You wouldn't have any WIP images, would you? I've been trying to get some piccies of the parts.

On to the next offering...

'in the spirit of "Its not over until the fat officer sings!"'

You know? I cringed for a second, but quickly followed a 'bravo!'

Foundry Madder Red Light as a base coat, then added Foundry Boneyard Light to successive lighter dry brushing. The rotor blades are tipped in stripes of French Blue and Ochre, both Foundry.

You wouldn't have any WIP images, would you? I've been trying to get some piccies of the parts.

Sorry, no wip pics. Body is one piece resin with separate fuel tank. The rest is metal - rotor blades are one part casting with separate support piece; rear fittings are rudder & two framework sides; the exhaust is one piece; the wheels and axle are three pieces. The acrylic stand clips together. The pilot is a one piece casting with three additional head choices, though it would be a tricky conversion for me! It's a simple kit that goes together well.

On to the next offering...

Thanks Doug!

That DOES help!

Thanks so much.
