The Gazelle - A little air support for modern combat

For scenery or as a mission target I bought a model kit of a Gazelle (from Heller) in 1/50 scale. In contrast to the 1/48 models, which are much too voluminous and don't fit 28mm miniatures in my eyes, this very light helicopter in 1/50 fits almost perfectly into the background.
The kit is felt to be from the 80s, so it can't compete with today's manufacturing qualities. For wargaming standards it is still absolutely suitable today. Although only 57 parts, the assembly was relatively time-consuming, because especially the painting in the interior and the cockpit became much more extensive, than thought.
