I'm currently converting the 1/35 scale Trumpeter CH47D Chinook to HC2 standard and I'm wondering if any manufacturer

produces any RAF markings for this model?

I've searched the net but come up blank so far. If anyone knows of the existence of any I'd be grateful. TIA. Roy. :rolleyes:

I don't know of any RAF Chinook decals. There are a couple of builds on ARC and elsewhere, so it's not impossible to piece together decals. Are you doing a Green or Pink one? RAF roundles aren't that hard to come by, once you make up your mind on the scheme, I am sure the fine folks here on LSP can help out with the decals.

Many thanks to you for the links to the pictures and the comments, I know that I'll find these very useful indeed.

I purchased the excellent book of the 'wok wok' from Wings & Wheels publications entitled 'Chinook in detail' and I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone contemplating building this kit.

The one thing that I'm finding out about the rules of these RAF versions serving in Afghanistan is that there are NO rules!

Every machine in the combat zone is tailored in some way for different missions and can sometimes change it's operational appearance almost overnight.

The version will be green, and I'm told that some are serving with only a couple of roundels and not even showing squadron badges or serial numbers which will make the task easier I suppose.

I had hoped to do a grey/green version at some time, but this will have to be put on hold until some decals become available.

If any manufacturer is reading this, looks like there could be a market here?

Thanks again, it's really appreciated! :rolleyes:

Thanks Tony!

When might it be available?

It could provoke some more interest from other modelers.

Looks good!

Thanks for your interest, it encourages me to purchase another kit. ;)

Hi Tony,

 

Great first post, I don't have the kit, but it might provoke me into buying one, once I'd got the decal sheet of course.

 

 

At the moment I am not sure, I still need to add a few stencils, correct some colour issues with the codes and add a union flag for the bottom, I am doing these in pshop and someone else is going to convert them and subject to costings produce a sheet, what will be on that in total I do not know, I have an Alps printer or two so I will be able to print this one off for my use, and hope the other sheet is produce, at the moment it is up in the air........ I was also working on a load of other countries schemes and art work too.

 

These were a couple of test prints on the wrong type of decal sheet for the Alps and without white being printed to give me an idea as to if I was going in the right direction.

Myself, I am doing these as I was on the RAF Chinook at the beginning, so I wish to do the version I worked on..... And as one says if you can't get it, do it yourself......... I would also like to do one of all of the interior decals too....
