I've managed to deviate from my usual modeling path I used to follow for last three years and started something that would inspire me at the moment I found myself being bored from my scratch build projects. Having searching my stash I found very nice MRC kit I bought years ago - OH-58D Kiowa.
For the first time I wrapped my mind around the idea to build it straight OOB, except... Well, actually to build models straight OOB is not my style at all. That's why I started googling in anticipation to find a lot of nice refers but... alas! I've just found a few. Thanks to some ARCers who responded on my thread at the Research Corner and posted some links and pics. After examining the refers I've set my mind on making an upgraded version of the helicopter.
I've started building the kit (you can find some in-progress pics here: http://pilot64.galle...atch?a=nF1-ghJk ) but I'm still at the research stage and looking for more refers.
I address all my prayers to all Kiowa guys who are putting their hands on that nice little whirlybird every day and can make (or maybe have got somewhere in their folders) some nice photos of the helo.
If you by chance have some pics of the "dog house" and the exhaust from above, please share!
Cheers and happy modeling!
