Bell 212 Twin Huey - Air Greenland

Recommended Posts

I'm happy to see this group build actually taking off!  So here's my contribution...

 

Surprise its also a subject I have wanted to do for a very long time... One of Air Greenlands choppers, a Bell 212 Twin Huey.

Why is it special to me? I Haven't been to Greenland - yet but many years ago I actually flew a couple of times with this chopper when it was still used by Maersk to ferry crews to oil rigs in the North Sea...

 

This is what it looked like at that time...

This is the kit I will be using...

I have no idea as of what is needed to convert it into a civilian helicopter. I haven't done any research into it.

 

So if you have any knowledge, you are welcome to share it with me...

 

To me, Greenland is a very special place with a spectacular nature and since it used to be part of the Kingdom, we are sharing a lot of history with it here in Denmark...

This should be a spell-binding trip Kent, glad to see you joining in the GB fun.

 

I'm agog to see what you come up with, especially if the model eventually sits on a snowy diorama base.

 

Great stuff,

 

Cheers.

I'm already feeling the pressure here and I haven't even started, Huh?

 

I will try not to disappoint all of your expectations... 

 

Ok, so I stumbled across this clip on youtube, you can get the atmosphere of Greenland and the kerosene of the Bell workhorse... enjoy!!!

Thanks for the interest, all is well, I have decided to give the FPU Mosquito a big 'push' to see some progress on the build. Then I will return to the 'whirlybird*
