A38-007
A/C type
Eurocopter Tiger - Armed Reconnaisance Helicopter
Based at
1st Aviation Regiment, Robertson Barracks, Darwin N.T. 2010
Scheme Three Tone black, green and tan
History/Significance
Newest armed recon helicopter for the Australian Army replacing the venerable Kiowa
Kit
1/72nd Scale Italeri with kit and Southern Sky decals
Paint: Gunze. To establish an acceptable green 312 was mixed with chrome silver. The brown was lightened a little also.
Tip: I strongly recommend leaving off the main undercarriage oleos until you have painted and decaled.  Much easier to do and to handle.
