3 hours work for 2 roof windows lol , tested Alclad Armoured Glass & Alclad Transparent Green on a bit of scrap as i couldent make my mind up lol , the Transparent Green looked best so Cleaned then polished the windows with Alclad MicroMesh , coated with Alclad Honey Primer , 3 fine coats of the Alclad Transparent Green then a dip in Alclad Aqua Gloss well worth the time and effort

Looking good so far, Fred. I dig this old mold; built it once as a kid and again several years ago, both times with kits under the Monogram label. Looking forward to more Yes

 unmasked the clear parts , painted and fitted the doors and main prop , just need to fit the ammo belts and the rear prop then ready for decals and weathering , had a slight problem with the rear prop as in its a moulded blob of plastic so had to build a new one out of plastic card just waiting for paint to dry on it :)

Very nice. The Revell US kit I have is the same plastic, different decals. The Monogram kit I have is from 1966 and while similar is a different kit.

I have recently found out that this kit is based on the old Monogram kit from 66. They have retooled and added parts and changed decals over the years.

Great looking build. It turned out super! I started a build using the same model and opted to kit-bash it into a Bell UH-1F. I'm 80% there, and will try to post it when completed.
