Italeri OH-13S
I guess Italeri did their best with a difficult subject and kudos to them for finally giving us a mainstream injection moulded kit of this important helicopter. But the tail structure really is way too thick. It still looks very effective but the real thing is very spidery in appearance whereas this is just.... not. I can't help thinking that if Roden had done this subject the parts would have been much closer to scale - although a real bitch to take off the sprues without snapping them.
One day I'll scratchbuild the tail from brass rod and mate it to Italeri's cabin and engine parts; that'll be special, won't it? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....!!!!!
Sorry, almost believed that myself for a second there....
