Here is the latest with the model ready to be masked for airbrushing. Having gone through many photos available for this helicopter and realising that the conversion kit was 20 years old (it's a little out of date), I ended up using artistic licence with the antennas' placement and types of antenna. Also I had to make up one or two additional parts and modify others to get close to the photos.  It would appear over the years types of antenna and placement has changed with the actual aircraft as well as there being several different aircraft. Anyway I've got to point where I can get onto the final stages. Got some decals to make also.

You can't beat a bit of artistic licence.

As I always say "s** the rivet counters" do what you want.

I think you guys are right. If it looks the job and I'm happy with it, that's all that matters.

As has been said ITLRITR  - if it looks right it is right!

Main colours airbrushed. Mr Hobby no 340 for the green and Halfords Fiat white for the white. Some brush work bits and pieces to do then on with the decals.

It must be my colour blindness, it looks almost black in the Photo.

Yes it is definitely green. Lighting is not so good. I'll remember for future photos.

You can just see its green but only because you have said so, without the prompt I would have said its black.
