Battle For Skira: USMC Star Force 21 WIP

Italei's Twin Huey is what I used for the main parts.
The cockpit. Crew is still missing.
This side will get a door gunner with 7.62mm minigun. The other side a .50cal MG.
"Star Force 21" is the call-sign of the helicopter picking up and transporting Team Razor in the PC game ARMA 2. The helicopter is a UH-1Y Venom. Since there is no such kit available, I will scratchbuild one using parts from various other helicopters and Italeri's UH-1N Twin Huey.
Star Force 21 is going to get the complete overhaulin' to include crew, door gunners, sidemounts with Hydra rocket pods, 7.62mm minigun and a .50cal heavy MG. To finish it off, the whole model is going to be mounted on a flyer base from GW. That should give it a pretty stable mount for most game purposes.
