India Independence Day



I am part of the Indian Scale Modellers and I thank the experts on the group who help me regularly with the details and pointers to make my builds a cake walk. 

I had picked up this kit on my official visit to Manila. This was to be a quick build, as I always wanted to have a Huey in my builds and like most HB kits it was a beauty and quick to build.

The kit was a beauty to build, no issues with fit, excellent fit and nice recessed panel lines and rivet details for 72 scale. Colors used were Tamiya Acrylics and after applying pledge 3 coats mixed 50% with water, I used Tamiya enamel black with its thinner for panel lines and weathering. 

This post has been made on occasion of the 69th Indian Independance Day on 15th August 2015.
