Hi guys,

Sorry for the very late update... the last weeks have been pretty tough and I found barely time for modelling.

In this post I will show you some pictures of the sprues and the additional parts I will use. Furthermore I add some pics of the first steps of the build.

Tomorrow I will finalize the cockpit section and add some additional instruments to the dashboard.
Pictures will be online by Monday.

Once again sorry for the delayed update!

How do you paint these bits so cleanly?
I'd love to see a short vid of how you go about doing this. I think this is one of the things that sets a good model from an average one.

Awesome, I've been thinking about getting one of these, nice to see Canadian markings in the box. Is the PE from several Eduard sets or just one?

My god!!! My job is killing me at the moment!! But finally I found some time to build and to post an update and answer all your questions.

@ TheJackal: I paint these small bits with a very soft brush and I use the dry-brush technique. I have painted the red buttons with a very fine brush I believe it is a 000 brush.

I would love to make a video but I am not sure if my old cam will do it. But I will give it a try ;-)

@Ferris828 For the paint scheme I have choosen the British version of the Chinook the one with the big Union Jack.

@Carsenault I am using the Eduard interior kit FE421 and the Eduard exterior kit 48601.

I have been wanting the 1/35 Chinook for some time but this looks sweet.

Firstly I wanted the 1/35 Chinook D from Trumpeter - than I saw the size of the Trumpeter kit ::)

This kit is really good, even oob. All the parts are nicely detailed and the decal sheet is just amazing - on the sheet are 6 different Chinook versions.

Royal Air Force. Falkland Islands 1982
Royal Air Force "Britforleb" Lebanon 1984
Canadian Armed Forces 2004
Italian Army Nassirya 2005
Royal Australian Air Force
US Army "Geronimo" 1976

The difference between 1/48 and 1/35 isn't really that big though? The Chinook in 1/48 should be around 13+ inches long, in 1/35 it should be around 17+ inches long.

Considering that everything I have in my stash, like figures/supplies/vehicles that I would use in a base/vignette is in 1/35, it just makes sense for me.

That depends on how you are displaying it of course......Chinook D is 99ft from rotor tip to tip front to back.

That works out to about 34" at 1/35, and 24 3/4" at 1/48
