Pilatus PC-6 - Australian Army (High Planes 1:72 #72032)


The High Planes 1/72 limited run injection molded kit, provides instructions and decals for three Australian Army aircraft. The only paint scheme that appealed to me was the 3 tone camoflage applied later to all Army PC-6 aircraft. The particular aircraft is A14-684 as it was in 1998.

The scheme shown in the kit for 684 is an earlier 1982 experimental scheme which was not adopted by the army. Reference photos (courtesy of PMMS) show A14-683 in the same scheme sporting the black marking as per my model. I could not confirm that 684 had the sharks mouth applied so it was left off.
