Hi Ian
Well that is far too good to be forgotten. A great model and as John said the camo looks excellent.

Ian - I had a great read through of the build as I wasnt born when you started it:smiling5:. A big fan of the Saladin and you have done a marvellous job on this one. Very impressive:thumb2:

I've been thinking about a base for this one. Didn't know what to do then I thought why not try a scene like the box art, so I got this in 1/72 ( a bit of forced perspective)

Nice kit that AH-1, but watch out for the canopy and door fit.

Nice idea. I remember those in Germany, the Army Air Corps guys offered us a trip in one. Guess what no one excepted, us REME guys preferred to be on the ground !

Got a bit more done, got the top part of the framework on a little fiddly but it's on nicely.

And as I'm having it in flight, thought I'd use the two pilots from this.

Nice progress,
,does it , or did it line up well. I can imagine that being a challenge to keep it square .
Does look the part.

Hi John it sat quite well in the end, it needs to fit in between the side frame not on top, and with it being thin and bendy, also with no locating pins or tabs it was just a tad difficult at first. But once you got one end sorted it just seemed to zip into place.
