MRC Helicopter 2014 Global Contest Entry
Italeri 1/72 OH-58D Kiowa Warrior A026
Model by Alejandro Perez, Mexico
The kit provided is a early version of the Scout Warrior, this model does not has any aftermarket and accessory in the market. The only way to make any modification or conversion is the scratch technique. I wanted to do the late version of this chopper. The model was painted using Aqueous Gunze, and pre-shading. The overall surface is painted on 34081 Helo-Drab, I mixed some colors to get this color. The weathering was made on oils and chinesse ink of W&N, the cote is Mr. Super Clear Flat. I Choose the simetrical configuration ordnance, rocket pods 2.75in. I rectified the main blades. I super-detailed the cockpit, and the flir system. I included the jammer and the dog´s house too.
