Cheyenne
« on: August 10, 2021, 07:41:52 PM »
This is my next project - the Lockheed AH56A Cheyenne - first flight Sept. 1967. I think 10 of them were built and the project died in 1973.
The kit is 1/72nd scale by Miku in resin with some etched brass. This will be a slow build.

Hi Chris,

An interesting project.

Did Revell, make one in 1/48 - 1/35th in the 1970's???

I seem to remember seeing one.

If they did, I'm not aware of it Kevin.

I'll do some digging and let you know if I'm right or probably wrong.
Cheers,

Hi Chris,
I'm wrong, but right.
Just done a check, and it was not Revell, 1/48th or 1/35th,  it was Aurora and to 1/72
I recognised the box art of the kit on Scalemates.
My Grey cells are working, probably not always in the right order.....!
Msea, Don't go there..........

Shall we form a Resin SIG Chris as I've got a few of that ilk to go at? Lol!!! Looks like I know what I'm working on after the current build.

Some progress on this one - cockpit parts done. Resin kits certainly take a bit longer than plastic kits!

Main fuselage halves together. Some filling required as all edges appear to be rounded.
This should speed up a bit now - I hope.
