You did an awesome job. Did you purchase that display base or did you make it yourself? It looks good!

Thank you for all comments. It was only training model where i tried to use variety of modelling techniques.

What movie is this? Blue Thunder?

Colour was the testors acrylic helo drab and the post shading i made with base colour with some drops of sand acrylic paint.

Helicopter landing plate i bought in Poland for circa 4 Euros. 

I have also couple issues with this build:

1. Testors acrylic helo drab. Disaster with painting by aerograph. I used testors thinner, proportions were taken from fellow modellers suggestions and i just blocked aero or painted with too much thinned paint....

2. Do you used mig pigments? I used mig sand pigment with white spirit, put on gloss cote but after matt testors varnish it almost completely disappeared

3. I had some dust in canopy from inside but i glued it very clean :(

4. After i took off canopy masks the edges of paint on canopy were very shattered.

If anyone had similar problem please share you experience and advices.
