Italeri 1/48 scale conversion
Italeri's 1/48 scale ACH-47A Armed Chinook
is available online from
Here is my 1/48 Boeing
This is a conversion of
the 1/48 scale ACH-47A from Italeri.
I looking for something
different from the green stuff and while searching photos on Internet I
found a beautiful image of a white and orange Chinook. Love at first
The conversion is not
close and reopen
the oblos on the sides (two on the right side and one on the other),
change the rear
gear legs (I used two from the front gear of the Italeri's Phantom)
and match to that the wheels from Monogram's Phantom (four!),
challenging, sourcing the decals!
I found most in my spare
box and the remain from the model sheet.
Inside there is a Jeep
from Revell's CH53. It is not most obvious, but it is there!
The painting is not
difficult either - three layers of white and two of orange.
Comparing the model with
the ACH-47A is an interesting contrast of colors.
