why is so dificult to post photos here? Bang Head

Hello Friends

I did A black hawk I see in pictures of something named C Company "Medevac," 2nd Battalion, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, at  CAMP TAJI, Iraq

one month on the making, lots of scratch and not a single aftermarket used, just the Carbines from a Bradley I redesigns to make it look like a funny "M-4"

also added a playboy magazine poster edition, real Iraq maps and a complete carousel made out of nothing

weathering was done with pastel and future

also did my first ever display base, pretending to be  a road to Baghdad or something like that with a small sand storm

(maybe I am wrong but I like the pictures a decide to do this one)

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you all like it!

Came out nicely.  The finish and markings look good, as do the scratch litter stacker and medic gear.

Great work on the weathering.  It's very convincing.  I formerly worked on grey Marine Corps birds, and I witness them all dusted-up.  I think you pulled the effect off well on the Helo-Drab.  It looks great!

Excellent work! Beautiful build! If I did not know that it was a model, I would be hard pressed to tell it from the real thing. You nailed it!
