I think I may have previously mentioned a dislike for masking

however there is no way I could do this without it.

A bit more masking will be done on the tail rotor for the red tip.

This is where she stands tonight

Some tidying up around the  canopy then I can make a start on the grey on most of the sticky out bits.

However it won't be here as I've run out of time.

See you in WIP though.

Defeated (not really, how many was that you’ve done already for this GB? :rofl:) by the manufacturer. That’s looking excellent - you’d never know that there had been a problem (if you hadn’t been reading the thread). While I have a large range of epoxies and others, I don’t think that this is the kit for me 😬. Maybe HobbyBoss, Trumpeter or Meng will cough one up?

I painted the sticky oot bits last night and the while airframe has had a coat of varnish ready for a start to be made on the decals.

Main rotor assembled and painted. I've some silver to do on the rotor head then of course all of the plumbing.

Decals are on the underside (trust me) and I'm thankful that there doesn't appear to be any on the top. There are 4 yellow strips left in the sheet though but the instructions make no mention of them.

The tips have been bent down. Surprisingly my brute force method of holding the main blade with those pliers at the point where the bend starts then finger pressure from above worked.

The biggest surprise was that none broke.

resized_8f30c150-a73a-4c5c-8b4a-aa3d7c04OOH..the roundels are on..must be nearly finished. :D

I put them on last night before abandoning due to the heat.

This afternoon I have been going blind with Revell's decal/deekal/transfer  sheet.

The numbers are in no logical order eg decal 17 is next to 234.

Some of the decals don't appear on the instructions and most are just black dots. Pointless trying to do these so I will use a fine marker pen later.

I loked at the numbers for the ones with a bit of colour..waste of time.

One side done and now stopped for food.

Might be the only way to get that tail to stay on if it parts company from the fuselage again.

Type 26 in 1/1 scale possibly.

There were some of these in 1/1 scale operating from EGDR last year. I didn't get up close to them though.

There's a few nice photos of them around. A youtube video too.

Most of the markings are on and I've started to add framing to the port intake. Not 100% accurate but should look better when painted.

The squashed spider in the foreground will become the cover for that hole on the top.

Thankfully the major construction is now complete apart from the wheels of course.

I now need to add the obvious missing pieces to the simplified version that Revell supplied. Various cables underneath plus a harpoon for holding it on the deck also need doing.

Some more aerials,the pitots and rotors..I'm going to have it ready by   (deleted)  I almost used the c word there and its only June.😁

A couple of hours spent adding wheels,aerials,static discharge wicks,wires,pylon details and the harpoon so only the winch and

main rotor to detail before its done.

Wow! Well done! It should get an honorary place in the GB gallery - especially considering the Amodel kit’s questionable quality. Against the rules I know, but jus a thought...

Lovely modelling 😃👍🏼😊
