SHOWCASE

Project name: AIRFAST S-58T Turbine powered helicopter Duration of work: 1 week Scale : 1/72 Scale Conversion Italarei kit Other detail: This is my original conversion of the 1/72 Scale H-34 Choctaw to become the AIRFAST S-58T Turbine powered helicopter. This is a simple conversion . I simply moulded a new “turbine” nose cone. I started with making a Balsa wood mold cut to shape of the Turbine nose intakes and exhaust. Then i heat stretched using the Tamiya Plaplate plastic over the wooden mold. The Decals were self printed. I used Tamiya spray for the livery markings PT. Airfast Indonesia is an air carrier from Indonesia. Back in the 1980’s, they have a strong base at Seletar airbase, Singapore. I remember seeing this helicopter at Seletar.
