Detail shot of the deck access hatch. Notice the white strip that runs all away around the edge of the helicopter deck. This was made using white graphic tape.

Nice shot of the helm. The color is pretty true in this shot. Looks like O.D. Green, but it's not!

Front view of the bow. Notice the weathered effect. The rain streaks and rust was made using my preferred watercolor weathering technique. Most preferred because if you make a mistake all you have to do is take it off with a little water verses repainting over the entire mistake. No boat model would be complete with out the water splashed on the sides of the hull, ramp, and fantail. this is made using gloss varnish applied with a brush. To make this look realistic, where the bilge pumps and engines are located you want to raise the amount of splash.

Diorama shots. Barely visible are two sailors inside, one awaiting MEDEVAC.

Beautiful shot of a UH-1D Slick being directed on to T-151-6 for an immediate MEDEVAC. The jungle background is a poster which gives a nice realistic effect.

Swirling palm tree being kicked around by the helicopters rotor wash also adds a nice effect.

BACK TO TOP

The helicopter is suspended by a palm tree on the riverbank, which is barely noticeable.
