Revell 1/48 CH-34D
Posted by oortiz10 on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 12:33 PM

This is Revell's 1/48 UH-34D built it to represent a machine from HMM-361. I don't know if this BuNo served in this squadron or if YN32 even existed, but I used the markings I had on hand. The squadron code on the nose was masked and painted. The stripes on the yellow decking were found in the spares drawer. Some seatbelts were made out of tape. Everything else was in the box. Some fiddly parts with vague or poor attachment points were left off. The rest was painted with MM enamels, and weathered with pastels and Flory's washes. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feel free to ask any questions. Comments and criticisms welcome. Thanks for looking!

Cheers,

That's a good-looking helicopter.

Amongst many other things, I like your subtle weathering.

Nice job! YesYesYes

Hey stik, to answer your question, I used MM Field Green (FS34097). I pre-painted some panels with various greens and browns before spraying the final color. Then I went back with various thinned greens and yellows before weathering with pastels. 
 
Hope this answers your question.
 
Thanks for looking FSM!

Nice build, particularly the restrained weathering.

I've always had a soft spot for Sikorsky's "Flying Baseball Bat."

Looks like an old Sikorsky I built around 1950, on of my first kits.  Mine was yellow with Coast Guard markings.  It may well have been a Revell kit, can't remember.

Computer, did we bring batteries?.....Computer?

The technique worked well.  It looks like your Sea Horse has been baked by the Vietnam sun.
