CH-47D Nightstalker build

Recommended Posts

Revell CH-47D. The kit gives the choice of either an RAF version or as the title suggests, converting it into the variant used by the 160th. 

Below the cockpit is complete and detailed with some internal weathering done. 

Fuselage pictured is following the removal of the RAF variant tanks and replaced with the larger ones for the 160th type. Filler was then applied and waiting for it to set for a few days. Not necessary to wait that long I know but using the time to prep and paint other parts.

All good, Running out of the Reliable Green Stuff so need to find something to replace it.

MIlliput is find you can smooth it down with some water and wipe the  excess away

Really?! I did not know that. Usually spend ages sanding 😂

Yep, Lots of lads use it for Sculpting Figures.

I'd Fill a seam and then smooth off the water and my finger of some suitable tool

At all stages from initial mixing to final setting Milliput responds to the use of water. To aid manipulation and avoid sticking, fingers and tools should be kept moistened with water. There are certain instances when work may be carried out in a gentle stream of water under a tap. To obtain a smooth finish, mould or apply Milliput and then immediately wipe and smooth gently with wet finger or with a fine textured moist cloth.

With installation of the larger extended range fuel tank complete next stage was a light grey primer coat followed by some pre shading along the moulded panel gaps. 

Next stage will be to fit the window "glass" before dry fitting followed by gluing the interior pictured aboveand both sides together.

Painting completed and two good layers of gloss varnish applied. Leaving to set for a few days before beginning to apply the transfers followed by some weathering. 

Also dry fitted the rotor heads which will be glued in place along with the side guns once all other work is completed. 

Very happy with how the paint turned out.

Assembled, painted, transfers applied and weathered one CH-47D. 

Have to say I enjoyed doing this kit, the first in a very very long time. Not a big fan of Revell to be honest. A lot of panel gaps and rough edges but all in all a good kit to get back into it.
