One of our members, vyma100 has been hard at work over the few months since Christmas creating a great model helicopter of the Annihilator from Grand Theft Auto IV.
It is an ‘Academy’ 1/35th scale UH-60L Blackhawk model kit. Minus the guns and troop seats. It has been assembled in the UH-60A with ESSS pylons (for the fuel tanks).
Purchased for Christmas last year and completed last month. It has been painted in the GTA IV Annihilator livery, with the inclusion of a 1/35th scale pilot assembled from 25 individual pieces to suit the seating position.
Paint colour is a gun metal gray metallic base with insignia yellow for the stripe.
The external co-pilot window has been manipulated to simulate being shot up, with bullet holes and blood splatter. As is the rear cargo area with a limb still clutching a carbine assault rifle and blood spray all over the door.
As everyone who plays multiplayer knows, if you jump in a helicopter, you're fair game.
Total cost $80AUD for model, $45AUD for paints and tools.
Time: Around 10hrs over the Christmas – New years period and around 30mins a night every second night until completion last month.
