Crashed BK 117







Here are some images of Revell's 1/32 scale MBB/Kawasaki BK 117 Helicopter crash landed along a river bank.
From Wikipedia" The MBB/Kawasaki BK117 is a twin-engined medium utility–transport helicopter. It was a joint development between Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB) of Germany and Kawasaki of Japan. MBB was later purchased by Daimler-Benz and eventually became a part of Eurocopter. The BK117 is popular for passenger and VIP-transport, seating from seven up to 10 people. It is also used for aerial crane and sling work, law enforcement, and military transport, and is exceptional as an air ambulance and search and rescue platform. Its successor was developed from the BK117 C-1 version. It is produced as the EC 145.

Wow! That's cool.

My friend was working up north when one of these birds went down. I saw the photographs of the crash site. Your diorama is so much like the real thing. What is good is that no one was injured beyond a few bruises.

Hy.
How big are the stones on the ground?. Looks like 2cm. With a scale 1/32 the stones are 64cm in diameter. Where the hell you have that big stones on the ground lying?

Warren Zoell said...

Ever been to the mountains Klaus?
This may come as a complete shock to you Klaus but did you know that there are stones out there that exceed 64cm?
I know , I know it amazed me as well. Who'd a thunk.

Warren Zoell said...

Klaus!! Look at this bizarre picture!
Gee some of those stones must be at least 3 feet in diameter.
May the gods preserve us.
