Kurt's Pinnacle of Success

Kurt says "Much to my surprise the Chinook won the "America Strikes Back" award at the 2022 IPMS Nationals in Omaha. I did not even realize there was this special category award until my name was called at the award ceremonies!"

CH-47D Pinnacle Landing

The kit is the 1/35 Trumpeter "D" Chinook. The Big ED detail kit was also incorporated. Why do I do this to myself, I just don't like working with PE, its a pain. The exemption to that would be the Eduard 'Zoom' intrument panels, pre-painted and look great.

This build has been on my bench for a long time including 2 years when I did not work on it. I would say this was a fun build and went together with minimum issues. One area of detail that was needing serious attention was the cargo cabin ceiling and wall insulation. In the 47, the insulation is kind of puffy. The kit walls and ceiling were pretty flat and I felt did not come close to a close rendition. Using Aves sculpting putty, styrene sheet and a piece of screening, the panels were fabricated. The screen was used to duplicate the quilting pattern of the insulation.
