Blue Noser 3,549 Posted March 22, 2020 Report Share Posted March 22, 2020 Greetings to you all, hope you are all doing well in these troubling times! Well I found this group build by accident and found it too hard to turn down a Helo GB, so I am in with this beastie! I bought this kit a couple of years ago at the Shearwater Hobby show here in Nova Scotia. The kit it self is rather very nice, even if it is a tad blue! At least it makes a difference to the usual grey, and a close up of the detail And the glasswear and kit decals Ive read some good reviews of this kit and looking forward to building it up, but alas I do like to build kits that I have a connection to (albeit some rather tenuous links!) and as I am into Canadiana it has to be finished as a CH-146 Griffon. I have some Belcher Decals for the yellow version, but some doubled up on my Cormorant build a few years ago so to be on the safe side I also bought this set It looks like you get 2 complete schemes in the pack so if this goes well I may have to go out and get another kit! This build will be the Yellow Peril So it was a good wash and I built up most of the internals ready for a prime to get things started Once that was dried I looked up for some info on the internal colours. From what I can make out the cockpit is black and the rest of the cabin is some kind of various shades of med sea grey. I thought it would be easier to do the black first, then mask up for the greys Not a great fot, looks like the camera focused on the bulldog clip rather than the kit lol but we have the floor, controls, seats, roof and sides done in black. I also did the outside of the windows to represent seals and will try and include that in the masking later. Ive never really been able to happily recreate the seals, but normally try to add them at the end. We'll see how this goes. That's all for now! Thanks for looking in Laters!
