Have just announced my Iroquois decal sets on my fb page. I will be releasing them early next year once I have completed the front cover of the decal placement guide. Looking forward to applying the 1st set on this kit.

All of the fit issues have been taken care of mate. Hopefully smooth sailing with the decal application and panel line wash. No weathering on this as the RNZAF kept these birds rather pristine. I quite like the semi-gloss paint they used on them. Will use Alclad's light sheen clear to finish her off.

Decals going on. Photos taken on weird angles because it was hard to get decent photos without reflections from the gloss coat.

Happy with the sizes so far, although the RNZAF on the nose needs to be made slightly larger.

Not long to go now. Currently at final assembly stage before a coat of semi gloss.

Some nice touches such as the aft door stops





Another stuff up by Kitty Hawk. Had to drill through the tail rotor mount so it has a solid attachment point to the tail and so the tail rotor can be fitted.

Mate that looks GREAT. All the effort is paying off nicely. The decals are really good.

Just finished this build. See the Aviation Showcase section. Really happy with how she turned out.
