Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior

by Christoph Schnarr (1:48 Italeri)

Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior

My latest model was the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior from Italeri (Kit No. 2704) in 1/48. It was my very first helicopter model after more then forty years of modeling.

The cockit was a little bit detailed with sheet, fusewire and etched seat harness. Also detailed was the AN/ALQ-144 "Disco light", the wire cutters above the cockpit and the M260 rocket tubes on the right side. The very characteristic XM296 gun pod on the left side of the Kiowa Warrior was scratch build.

Painting was done with Tamiya colours. The marking are from the kit and for an OH-58D from E-Troop, 1st Squadron, 7th Cavalry regiment in Bosnia 1996.
