WIP - Revell 1/48 HH-53C Super Jolly Green Giant

Hey fellow plastic mashers,

I recently finished Revell's 1/48 CH-34D. It was only my third helo, and I thought I'd build another one. I've been in the mood to build something big, so I pulled Revell's Jolly Green Giant out of the stash. 

I started with building the engine assemblies. The kit's fit isn't bad, but the parts do have a lot of flash. I only used a little bit of Mr. Surfacer on one of the nacelles.


When dry-fitted to the fuselage, it seems that the assemblies will go together pretty well.


I'm planning on building the kit OOB, but I couldn't help adding some tape seatbelts to the very visible cockpit. 


That's pretty much all I have so far. I'm getting ready to close up the fuselage. Once I do, I'll post some more pictures. 

Comments, questions, and criticisms are welcome.

Thanks for looking!

Hello O!

Lookin' good, I've seen some of those Revell babies built up in Germany, in 1:48 they are impressive.

I'd like to suggest you sand the engine nacelles a bit finer. Other that that it's lookin' good for now. So good luck with your build and have a nice day


All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!
