By the way this is the Dio I'm shooting for. Of course it will not have its rotors folded the kit doesn't allow for it although I may try to see if somehow I can cut some things here and there so I can fold them myself



Going to do the nets and even kind of fake the hangar opening. Got to find some reffs of the underside of these elevators as well as the folded rotor joints

That should indeed be a fabulous diorama. Hope you can pull that one off. Beautiful work on the cockpit. I have a Lynx in the stack but never build a heli. Watching this one.

Wim.

I absolutely love the cockpit weathering.  I would like to know what type of wash/drybrush technique/colours you used to bring out the details.

Thanks Perry! It's pretty simple actually. Used Tamiya "Rubber Black" for most everything except for a few little bits. With these I used Mr. metal buffables like the collectives I sprayed them with Mr. Metal Dark Iron then buffed it real good then used Tamiyas Nato Black and painted the parts that I didn't want a shine. The washes I used are Flory's Dark Dirt and Light wash combining them to make like a grey-ish color. I also didn't put down a future coat as I wanted most of the wash to stick like on the floor. Seats are olive drab and brown belts are dark grey. For the dry brushing I always use one of Game Workshops dry brushing paint called Necron compound. For the screens on the IP I mixed Tamiyas Clear Red and Clear Blue to get a purple type color to simulate a powered down effect. then when it was dry I put a few drops of Future to shine them up a bit. Then for the buttons I picked out I just used a toothpick(cocktail stick) with a little of Vallejo's white or red because it's thin paint and it works best for me. That's about it. Hope this helps you out!
 
Cheers!

It will look really good on the deck with the rotors folded Neil, would be pretty sturdy if you have the supports on them mate

Update: Page 5 Engine and Bay (open side)

Parts cut and ready for cleaning



There was a couple of ejector pin marks that needed taken care of very minor just filled with Perfect Putty then a light sanding fixed them



Drilled holes in the ends for cocktail sticks for ease of painting, holes will not be seen.




Glued up and painted Chromate yellow fans painted with Mr Metal Dark Iron and buffed.





Engine dry fitted Looking ok but needs a lil something.[wink]



Adding some tubing




Then some dark iron sprayed.



Buffed up!



Exhaust end and hose painted




The rest of the parts installed and painted with some ink wash applied






Dry fitted again for a look...Much better!! [thumb]



That's where it's at. I will be adding more tubing and some wire work to the bay and engine next.

Thanks for looking and all the great comments!!

Cheers!

Man, it's looking great so far. The interior certainly creates a challenge with it's overall black finish. The Zulu is the same. I used a variety of different "blacks" shaded with greys and greens. I like your diorama idea. I think the no prop fold is the one weakness of the two kits. You may be able to work it out though.
