Chinooks for use with 15mm moderns or Stopping the Red Tide
Recently I converted a couple of roughly 1:100 scale Chinook helicopters to create an airmobile platoon for my USMC that I use for Cold War gone hot or variations of the Fate of a Nation. I couldn't find a cheap and good looking model. This one cost me about $20 each but only because I used the Battlefront rotors and helicopter stand.
Here are the parts your going to need:
2 x Battlefront helicopter rotors ($10)
1 x Helicopter flying stand ($10)
All the bits I used
I started by glueing the wheels into postion, the rotors in and then covering all the holes with clear plastic from the blister package. I the centre middle cut a small hole for the helicopter stand.
Rotors, wheels and holes covered
Next up rotor blades
I know a Chinook has more blades on it's rotors but it looks great and only a handful of people will get that
