1/35 Trumpeter CH-47D Chinook

Gallery Article by Jaroslav Kral on Dec 22 2010


Hello all,

  Please see attached pictures from my Chinook building.  It is really big stuff.  This diorama is placed in our facility in the reception area.  Every visitor can see it.  My model was great to build and good training for new techniques.  Especially the interior.  I also installed lights and rotor propulsion.  There are two small electric engines with a gearbox.  It has 110 rotations per minute. Only what I should add are interior lights. Next time on next model. The diorama is called "Somewhere in Iraq".

The model contains about 7m of wires. There is small control panel for each circuit. Flashing anti collision lights are done by small electronic circuit which is fixed in “box” looking as cargo inside. Pilots and crew is also from Trumpeter. Only rescue team is Tamyia.

I hope you enjoy. Nice modeling everyone. Greetings from the Prague.
