MRC Helicopter 2014 Global Contest Entry
ESCI 1/48 OH-58A Kiowa A027
Model by Alejandro Perez, Mexico
The kit is very old, in the market does not any aftermarket or accessory. Every detailing on the model is pure scrachtbuilding, the only pieces on resin are the minigun(cannon) and turboshaft. The model shows the open housing, and the engine. The skid was made on brass tube. The model gets many defects and lack of quality. I tried to get better the model almost possible. My idea was to show the Kiowa Scout on Vietnam. The interior is total detailed. The paint is Gunze 34087 with pre-shading, The cote is matt of Humbrol. The weathering is oils and a few artistic pigments. The red lights and search one are made on scracth.
