Time for a new aircraft build....







Will be using the kit decals and the Eduard 'Zoom Set' to dress up the flight deck and interior. First progress pics tomorrow with a little luck. Stay tuned.

Ian.

Always loved that Cherry Point rescue Sea Knight. Definitely one I'll be following.

I have the Fujimi kit in 1/72 with plans the same scheme, one day.

Cabin started:
















Next I'll add the forty-odd decals to the cabin sides, paint & weather the 'deck' and start building-up the casualty litters. If you look closely at the last two photos you'l see the myriad of holes to open in the fuselage sides dependent upon which version of the basic H-46 you're building.


More over the weekend, hopefully.

Slow progress because of the two-week 'winter break' and having to entertain / referee 'Daddies Little Stormtroopers' last week and next... No matter still managed to grab some time in 'The Cave':























So as you can see, the fifty-odd stencils have been applied to the cabin walls and I've finished all the detail painting and weathering - not that you'll be able to see too much. The casualty litters are all glued in to place and the cabin floor is now the correct matt gun-metal shade. I'm going to add some dust effects here too, thicker near the rear ramp and right side door then thinning out - again you won't really see the result but I know it's there !!



Thanks for taking the time to look and / or comment, more as soon as I can.

First and last time y'all will see the IP, hopefully closing-up the fuselage halves tomorrow if I can squeeze some time in the Cave:











Thanks for all the interest so far, really appreciate it as always.

Looking good Ian. It's another kit in the stash that I yearn to build some day.
