Hello,

I'm looking for ways to convert an Heller Alouette for Portuguese and Rhodesian gunships.

Photos of Portuguese "Lobo Mau" (Bad Wolf) gunships:

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Hi,

I seem to remember a rather large cannon or gun in the Italeri H-34 Choctaw kit, as it has markings for a French a/c in Algeria.

I'll check my stash in the next couple of days and if it does then you can have it as I'm using the kit for a USMC Vietnam army I'm collecting.

as the gun is a mg151/20 you can chop up a mg151 drilling set still need to make the mount/sit

i purchased some 1/72 20mm Hispano and Colt model 12 cannons from Squadron. They look close enough for me.

Thanks guys and sorry for the belated reply. Bob, don't bother looking for it. P&P isnĀ“t worth it mate.

Cheers
