This is my latest build which is the 1/72 scale AW109 LOH used by the Malaysian Aviation Unit for the army. The helicopter is mainly used for air reconnaissance and close air support. Currently the Malaysia PUTD unit around 10 units of it in active duty.

The kit used to make the model variant is the Revell A109 K2 Rega, few conversions are needed amongst it, is the addition of radar panels at the rudder area and abit of trimming for the rear rotor blade. The scheme is the digital camo which belongs to 881 Squadron which is based in Southern Peninsular of Malaysia. 

Overall it is a simple build the kit itself was easy to assemble and not much gap issues which is good apart from some canopy having fitting issues.

Thanks for the read !
