Mexico - Dia de la Marnia - June 1 2007 

 

Hi again, I'm back again with this Helo in 1/72 scale.  From Koppro that is a very good kit.

The great thing is that the rotor blades come already curved.  The kit decals give the Search and Rescue sqd. of the German Air Force, but I put decals from Zotz Decals (North American air forces) and finished with Armada de Mexico emblems.  June 1st is the Dia de la Marnia.
In the 90`s the Armada de Mexico had most of it's aircracft in these colors, and mainly are used in rescue missions or to help in natural disasters.

Hope you all enjoy this model

Greetings from Monterrey N.L. Mexico
