A "real" What-If: AMT's Airwolf!
« on: January 17, 2023, 08:59:40 AM »
Quick question: Whatís black and white and is technologically -inconsistent-with-modern-military-hardware all over? Think about itÖ Nothing? Okay, Iíll give you a hint; itís also retro-as-heck (and involves Ernest Borgnine). No? Well, if youíre stuck, I forgive you. If youíre not, though,  youíve already reached the right answer:

Airwolf!!

This ridiculously overpowered Bell 222 was one of the most popular of the Ď80s TV supervehices, and with Hellfire missiles, machine guns and afterburners, it tore up the screen in the mid-80s! No wonder then that Airwolf was also made available as a model, since kids were still into modelling at that time.

I came across this particular kit recently and thought that the winter was a perfect time to dive into some cool retro Ď80s sci-fi. Check out this decent, although somewhat minimal-effort offering from AMT at the link below, and make sure youíve got your mesh T-Shirt on and synth ready while you do it!
