H-21 And Now for Something Completely Different

OK. I have a 1/72 Italeri H-21. My goal is to build this into a flying Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile.

Obligatory starting pic.

Just thought I'd add a shot of the real "Wienermobile".

With that chopper you're half way there! Should be cool. Too bad Oscar Meyer didn't think of this.

Finally getting some work done on this one. Of course, I can't complain about 10 days at the beach, even if I didn't get much modeling done.

I have the basic structure of the "bun" worked out. Ready to put some putty on it this evening. It took a little fiddling to get the landing gear to work with the "bun".

Nice work on the "bun" I imagine the real life version would look very much like what you have here.

Well, it's done. Not the greatest work. A bit frustrating toward the end as things kept getting screwed up. A combination of some kit problems and some ham-handedness.

Cool build!  :) Certainly captures the look of the original.

<...> and some ham-handedness. <...>

Surely you mean sausage fingers.  ;D
