The last few evenings I have been able to have a couple of building sessions and have made a start on this excellent kit. I am opting for the color scheme of some Makin Island Airacobras. They were a type of tan on top and azure blue underneath. It will be different.
As you can see by that quarter, it is small. It is a typical Arma product, i.e., very well designed and executed. The fit is flawless. The detail is excellent. Like I have said before, Arma kits are 1/48 scale kits produced in 1/72 scale. (The little round piece is the propeller mount that is sandwiched in the nose.) This is my best guess on “Bell Green”. Who really knows? There was no FS number.
Since I pre-ordered the kit directly from Arma, they included a 3D printed pilot seat as a bonus. This was my first experience with a 3D printed part. Cutting it loose was so much easier than many resin parts. There are many attachment points, but being plastic, they are easily dealt with. These parts are certainly the wave of the future.
It is Christmas Eve and the festivities are soon to get underway. Merry Christmas to all!
