Last night, I watched for the second time in 2016, the excellent (IMHO) movie "Act of Valor". I'd like to get informations about this chopper please, I'll include 3 screenshot/captured photos playing with the pause button.



Thank's in advance

I did a search and I can see that the biggest Chinook CH-47 is the A model in 1/35 (Trumpeter TSM-5104)

Is there a G model that I somehow missed?

TIA

===========================

Forget I asked, in CDN$ the Trumpeter model cost 209$ and it's not including shipping.

Trumpeter also makes a modern CH-47D in 1/35 (05105), which is what you would need to make a MH-47G. Werner's Wings had a limited edition MH-47G conversion kit for it. I'm not sure if it is still available though. They are currently listed as "Sold Out".

Here is Floyd's step-by-step conversion build of one.

Revell makes one in 1/72-- a fairly you nice kit that I built a few years ago as a commission for the son of a member of the 160th SOAR.

The Chinooks in this film look like an MH-47D. Italeri makes a 1/72 scale model of this. i had one of these, it's kind of cheap.
