This sleepy thread awakens to he sound of ... a chopper! Not just any old whirlybird, but a Chinook, and not just any Chinook, either. My Antarctic Division has expanded, so make room for the Argentine Antarctic Brigade's Chinook helicopter.

Image
This is a little 1/144 model (11cm or 4.3 inches long), originally of a US Army Chinook, a very nicely fitting and cheap kit made by Ace Corporation in South Korea.

Image
The paint and markings scheme is based on photos found on Google Images. By my loose standards, it's fairly accurate. As usual, I made up all my own decals based on photo research.

Image
While I'm not much of a helicopter fan, I'll make an exception for Chinooks, which I think are extremely cool.

Image
Though almost invisible as tiny decals, I am very fond of these two. The one on the left shows the Islas Malvinas (known to Brexiters as the Falkland Islands, of course) and on the right is the official Argentinean logo for its Chinook division.

Image
Finally, the Chinook, with its orange colouring, looks totally at home on my crowded Antarctic Division shelf.

I feel a lot safer knowing that this helicopter is at the ready to rescue me :D

Another great build and a nice addition to the rescue fleet.

There used to be a couple of Chinooks at the now defunct airbase near me. Cool beasts indeed.
You did a great job on the model.
