Andre,

Kan ek voorstel maak, onthou jou Uh-1B het seker ge operate in the crappiest arena ooit. Reen, stof, jungle humidity, hot LZ's, manne wat bloei ens.

Dink jy moet so bietjie vuil / weathering in jou cockpit inbring, hoef nie baie te wees nie, bietjie skaaf merke, stof, roes, krap merke... ens

Hier is period cockpit foto, gee jou idee wat ek bedoel... anders moet jy bly onder "factory fresh"

Sal jou in week skakel en praat oor die EC.

Groete

Die Gunships het min evac gedoen, so nie te veel bloed en guts. Baie ammo kiste rondgegooi en gesleep. Die cockpit weathering het ek baie subtiel probeer doen en ek is nognie klaar maar hier is 'n paar proef fotos.

Lyk goed! Die heli's het maar in rowwe kondisie gewerk.

As jy sien hoe carrier based dinge lyk, is dir scary dat hulle nog vlieg.
