Argentine Antarctic Brigade Chinook
Posted by Ozmac on Thursday, March 30, 2017 5:07 PM

This is my frst helicopter build, in 1/144 scale.

I have over the last few years been building model aircraft which saw service in the Antarctic or Arctic regions (eg, Norduyn Norseman, DHC Beaver, Auster AOP, Antonov An-2) and when I saw a photo of an Argentine Antarctic Brigade Chinook I decided to add this to my collection. 

This 1/144 scale model is based on a US Army Chinook, a very nicely fitting (and cheap) kit made by Ace Corporation in South Korea. 

The paint and markings scheme is based on photos found on Google Images (all paints are Tamiya rattle can colours). I made up and printed out my own decals. 

I simply don't know much about helicopters, but I have always loved Chinooks, and it's great to have one sitting on my shelf.

Though these two decals are almost invisible, I am very fond of them. The one on the left shows the Islas Malvinas (known to Brexiters as the Falkland Islands, of course) and on the right is the logo for the Argentine Chinook brigade.

Very cool build.  It's nice to see a familiar aircraft in an unique paint scheme.
