Italeri Flying Banana; H-21 Helicopter

I purchased this kit some time ago, when it was first released in Japan. Fortunately, I ordered the Eduard PE at the same time. Italeri offers four options for markings. I have immediately ruled out two. So, it will either Canada, or the US of A.

:pop An odd looking machine but should be eyecatching in either of the schemes you are considering.

Canada without a doubt and a change from the norm.

The Canadian scheme has my vote, just for the colours!

"Oh Canada, you're cold and way up North!!!" I really like the Canadian option. I have a Becher Bits sheet for Canadian Helo's that calls to me often - then work intercedes. Damn!!! Go for the Canadian.

Well gents, if that is how you feel about it, Canada it shall be! Should prove easier than an all metal finish.

Glad we were able to persuade you to do the Canuck version, now get on with it.

Nice subject Blaine :cool Personally I would have gone for one of the two schemes you dismissed at the beginning, but the Canuck scheme is cool too :grin:

Mac; I understand. The French version did not appeal to me at all. And I have many Japanese military subjects.

Getting started on the interior.

The interior is finished for the time being. Things went more quickly than I had expected. I will move on to the fuselage interior. The paint call out us for Light Ghost Grey. But I think Zinc Chromate might look better. Some research will be in order.

Some photos show the interior Chromate Green and others show Grey but not both and as you have a grey cockpit I personally would stick with grey. I think the early ones may have been Green.
