One of he few helicopters I like.Looking forward to seeing you build this one.When I was down the Falklands with the RAF the ground crews called it the ' woka woka' because of the noise made by the rotor blades.

Still going strong and still contributing to Britain's overseas military contributions. A helicopter as deserving of a build as any other major combat type. Look forward to seeing it develop Peter.

The camo patterns really complex when you look at it closely.

I personally would forget the brush and invest in a paint pen or similar that way you can manage the different thicknesses to the lines without losing the crisp edging.

Two builds - good heavens. Well, you do the Falklands Chinook (BN), I'll do the Wessex (XQ).

Your Chinook is looking good Peter. You are cracking through these helicopter builds. What will the third one be?

Nice job Peter. It's amazing the amount of work this aircraft had to do in the falklands.
