OH-58A Kiowa

by Patrick Nabinger (1:32 Italeri)

OH-58A Kiowa

Here are 4 photos of my 1/32 OH-58A Kiowa. Its a very old kit from Italaerei (Yes at this time Italeri was called
Italaerei). Originaly from IMC it was reisued by Italaerei, then re-reisued by Revell and todays re-re-reisued by Revell. :)
I built it in 1983, i was a young modeler at this time. I had no PC, no acces to the net and just 3 photos of a Kiowa
Of course, not enough to do a good job. It's why you ca see a few inaccuracies:
  • I didn't modify the rotor diameter nor the tail boom length, the kit is a civilian JET RANGER
  • I had no idea on how the inside of the aircraft looked, so I installed the civilian inside.
  • The inside color match perfectly with the reference photo ... but the color of the photo was wrong

As you can see, not a perfect model. I have a Revell kit on my stash, must rebuild it on of these days.
