    The gun................. is looking good!

    I remember the first time I walked up on one of the bad boys........... I knew what it had up front, but BOY! OH BOY! starring down the barrels of "the gun" WILL make you want to wet your pants!sign1

    I have a mental picture of what that helicopter looked like floating to the ground that two of these guys happen to find trying to escape durring the liberation of Kuwat.

    That is one BIG bullet.

    Again great job on this "Hog", please keep the pictures comming:thumb:



    Koncho's models are nice and build up to make very, very good looking models! I keep saying I'm going to upscale to 1/33 his Buckeye...........hmmmmmm maybe over the new years break. Everybody knows how I feel about red and white airplanes:rolleyes:

    Very nice! Good info on the round elements. Makes sense, but I did not known that. Good info to remember in the future.

    I am enjoying this thread. Fairchild built these in Hagerstown MD just one town south of where I live. When I was kid, they would test fly these in pairs over the house all the time. Way cool:cool:

    Nice hawg. I noticed that the mouth goes from black to blue then back to black. Is there a reason or is it like that in real life? Looks nice.

    I had not noticed this until you mentioned it. I looked at the actual model, and the RH side has a tint of blue in it, but the LH side is perfectly black (same part). :confused: It is barely noticeable on the model, but my camera accentuates everything.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Ken: Very nice work on what is also one of my favourite aircraft!

    You also need one of our new and improved pilot figures for this bird!
