admittedly there are some corrections at hand. but the general shape is convincing enough. I know at least one person will be pleased with this.

Yes Bruno very nice work.


Rata: It looks like a HH-3 Jolly Green Giant of the Vietnam Ara. In size and shape.

Aerospatiale SA 315 LAMA Fuerza Aérea Argentina

Aerospatiale SA 315 LAMA of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. I made this recolor and modified air intake filter, landing skis (more higher than Alouette II) and add two canisters at both sides. I added a cardan shaft for rear rotor as well. Thanks Bruno for this and others Helis you're been making. Best Regards, José Antonio Rodríguez aka Tigertony100

Very nice Lama, tigertony. Thanks for sharing these pictures.
Is that in 1/100 scale?

As Rata said so correctly, the EH101 is indeed a large beast.
And it looks indeed somewhat like the Jolly Green Giant (at least in the troop transport variant, which I still have to design).

My proven talent must be going away and stop bugging my wife. She often hints I should do just that.

Bike season is pretty much over so building season is on

Here is Bruno original Blackburn Roc. Colors are original and only change is added undercarriage,wing fillets and Finnish markings applied on batch intended for Finland but never delivered. It's a whole other story covered in detail (although a bit chaotically) on britmodeler forum:

Blackburn Roc for Finland - Aircraft WWII - Britmodeller.com

Model turned out much easier than I anticipated and as far as Blackburn aircraft go this one looks pretty good. Blackburn was known for some really questionable esthetics and aversion to French curve rulers by their designers. Brent did splendid reclors of this model and he inspired me to do this one. It sat on hard drive until now. Enjoy the pictures



How would that plane do in Finnish service if it ever got there? Imho most likely very well considering service record of other British made planes in Ilmavoimat service. Closest plane to Roc Finns had was Fokker C.X biplane and they served well past 1945.

I think quite well too; bearing in mind the good service record of Finnish Brewster Buffaloes compared to the poor showing of this type elsewhere.
