I'd like to submit some Pictures of an Irish air Corp Allouette 3 Search & Rescue Helicopter circa 1970 in a diorama.
I used the Heller 1/72nd scale kit and used Decals from Max Decals Sheet for Irish Air Corps Markings, the crew are Fujimi and and used Humbrol colours for the Silver finish with the Dayglo Orange Panels.
The Engine was weathered with Mig Pigments and copper wire was used for detail on the engine and winch rope, the diorama is set in the Dublin Wicklow Mountains, Model Railway scenics were used along with clear varnish and future floor polish for the water. An enjoyable project and a tribute towards a Workhorse of the Irish Air Corps for over 30 years.
Next on the bench is an Irish air corps EC-135 in 1/35th scale.
