Ready for inspection: CH-47D A15-104 'Crux Australis'
Posted by DesTROYer on Thursday, December 27, 2018 11:55 PM

Getting back from my Christmas trip yesterday evening, this morning I managed to fire up my digital camera and after playing with lighting for a while, was finally ready to take some glamour shots of my finished Chinook. Its final resting place will be in a perspex display case with these patches I received from LSP member and Brahmans Chinook crew member in Afganistan, Craig Hartnett. Craig was an invaluable help on this build, providing photos and advice throughout. 
  
Without further adieu,

Kit: Trumpeter 1/35 CH-47D
Aftermarket: Eduard's Big ED set for the CH-47D

Really stunning work!

And a great tribute to those brave Aussie Brahmans and their service. Yes

Cheers
