Agusta A109's

These are the Agusta 109's (Hkp15A's and Hkp15B's) of the Swedish Armed Forces to be used in conjunction with the Black Hawks at Malmen in the Saab 105 packages:

I've painted 8 examples (5 A's and 3 B's), limited by the parking on the helicopter ramp at Malmen.

They are all ready to be packaged, but before I upload them, I just want to see what's involved with the Belgian A109BA's in a bit more detail. There are some significant differences in the models but If they are manageable, they could be included with the Swedish examples.

Hi John, another really good job with the A-109 :smt023
I've had another look at the Italian examples. I think that if you can remove the gunner, these model are good also for the AW-109s of GdF and Carabinieri. Some differencies in antennas and sensors but I think we can do without the perfect configuration.

Regards, Giorgio

There are 3 models for each of the two types Giorgio. The gunner is in a separate 15A and 15B model and only allocated once to each type because of the additional polygons. The other two models for each type have no gunner, but a choice of an animated left door and the door permanently closed to give some variety when parked.

Always thought they were sleek helos when the USCG used the MH-68 variant years ago. I do love the door gunner. Another brilliant rotary AI model.

Hi John,
New Zealand operates them as well.... I can probably get the same sort of details as I got for the Strikemaster if you are interested?

Another dovely looking model!

Cheers
Sean

I think they are quite manageable Sean - from a quick look, it's the Swedish model with the addition of a winch. I think I can probably manage with what's on the net thanks, but if I get stuck I'll come back.

I am in the middle of making the Belgian "BA" models. They are significantly different to the Swedish models and have involved a lot of re-work in Gmax, but I'm now at the re-mapping stage prior to painting.
