Marine CH-46E HMM-265

This helicopter was flown by a friend of mine. It took me a long time to start, but it is finally nearing completion. After building the SWIFT boat for another friend, I was a little skittish about scale models. However, nothing really compares to making a model for a friend. I recommend that everyone give that a shot sometime. We paint up toys in vast quantities, but to paint something with meaning is quite different.


  1. Looking ace! And I‘ve to agree. I‘ve never enjoyed painting figures as much as when I was painting some as presents for good friends.

  2. Great job, I hope your friend loves it! Love the soot exhaust marks.
