Here`s my just completed, Special Hobby 1/48 scale, H-21 Flying Banana

Built from the French and German boxing (on special offer from Hannants, cheap skate me!)

with decals from the spares box

Added some extra bits of detail inside the tail and cockpit like pipes and collective levers

and have just managed to get the super glue and miniscule P.E. bits off the ends of my fingers

hope you enjoy

...That is outstanding!

I love it!

I'm still looking to get one of those for my Vietnam helo collection myself.

Top notch detail work on the rotors and interior, but those external cargo cables, I think they really set it off!

Simply outstanding work all around Russ... Take a bow, you've earned a standing ovation!

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.
On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.
