Bell HH 1N Marines
| Scale 1:48
Quite a simple model, my first one painted with the airbrush. It turned out that due to bad choice of the paint (acrylic Italeri is not suitable for this kind of model) and some additional mistakes during assembly - most of the model had to be re-worked with a regular brush, so the airbrush effect is not that spectacular. Canopy edges are visible even after applying putty and polishing. The airbrush in fact should be applied after the canopy is glued together, but this way some previously painted elements would be covered. I could use some masking (tape or fluid), but the poor Italeri paint would come off. After all - the final effect is not all bad.
