the flying banana

yes....oh boy. I just saw that Fondere is going to produce an h-21
in 1/48th scale. Can't wait. I built the 72nd scale model some time ago.

I hope it goes together better than the R5 kit.

I built that kit a few years ago. I think I came across a photo that showed a standard dark gull grey or medium grey interior.

Have fun with it, it was a good kit.

Hi Ron,
New to forum,have only read your topic today. If I'm not too late, the following should be of great help to you :

The upper case A and I are intentional!!. Scroll down to helicopters.
I'm halfway through the Hobbycraft kit, found one or two faults. Part 34 will not fit under console. You will need to fit flooring if you want to model doors open.
Part 5 is not on my plans ??? No cyclic controls !!! I found it much easier to join parts 35/10 and 36/9 and then add parts 6. Otherwise, I am very pleased with this kit.
For those of you who are Mil-Mi fans, the above has quite a few galleries.

Came across a review of the Revell/Italeri H-21last night. It's over on Hyperscale. Very impressive.
