My annual build is now underway. Having given Daz some money and told him to again find something that he would like on the tables and which I would build and donate ... with the only stipulation being, it not be an aircraft - he returned with a load of my cash and a packet of 1/35 figures....

After a few discussions and thoughts on what to do, I then purchased a Huey and the basics of a setting came to mind....

The Huey is coming along OK. It is certainly a product of its age, and fits where it touches; but having build a fair few Airfix old tool seakings I am used to a tad of filler

I will be building and working on this project along with a fair few boats, and when I need to set them aside, to let things set or harden I shall dip back to this project for a bit over the next few months.

Nice work so far Chris, will be interesting to see the outcome of this!

I just love seeing what people build and watching the ideas turn into reality all for the biggest model show in the world!

You're making quick work of this Chris. I knew you'd enjoy something different 8-)
