In previous blog entries, we looked at 1/48th Kiowas from other vendors, including:
As I stated, ESCI also produced a couple of Kiowas: one civilian (Jet Ranger) with float as an option, and the other as a military machine. Unfortunately, I do not have any of these two ESCI kits.
Below are pictures of Italeri’s OH-58A Kiowa (Italeri 2624). Unfortunately, I have built this kit a while back, and can only post pictures of the instructions.
Decals are provided for 3 machines: 2 U.S. Army and one Spanish. Assembly was easy. Details and assembly are better than Heller’s. I also like Fujimi’s kit because you can opt to show the helicopter with or without the tail shaft cover. The level of details between Italeri and Fujimi kits is the same.
