    Pattern from the official website of JGSDF (Japan Ground Self Defense Force)
    I tried to rescale but it is still larger than 1/144 might be 1/100 or 1/120, I'm not sure.

    Well, I've been busy with plastic model but as it rains a lot in Thailand, I need to switch to paper models. :D

    The 2nd picture is my plastic 1/144 Saab JAS-39 Gripen. Already use Putty still need to paint primer. But as I say, it rains a lot.

    I would recommend some wire lengthwise in the blades to keep the rotors up, it will make the helicopter come alive! You can anchor them by having each on bend around the rotor and go into the next blade. :)

    Yes, it looks much better. Those helicopters blades sag a little when the copter is parked. A long gentle curve right to the tip. Great job! :)
