Bell 47 Sioux

1/48 Italeri Bell 47 Sioux

The kit

This is the Italeri 1/48 Bell 47 Sioux that Ralph modified to represent the Australian Army aircraft as flown in Vietnam. Ralph tried to make a "generic" Viet Nam base with some red dirt and a few different "grasses" from the blended turf 'stuff'.  From the pictures it came up looking ok as the grass bits have ended up sitting proud of the dirt so it has some scale 3-d relief.

The Roo's on the aircraft have a different angle to them but Ralph used photos taken in Viet Nam as references and is a little perplexed as all other squadron machines have them on the normal "horizontal" way.
