I'd like to say something more coherent than "Wow. Just wow", but nothing else comes to mind. So I'll just sit here and gawp until I find the words. :laughing:

I'll repeat myself, but details :wow: even the shadows of the «helice?» are so good!

That's cool. It looks just like the Coast Guard helicopters that constantly fly over my house. Great job with the technical details.

Thank you. It was nice drawing a helicopter again. I've only drawn a few but they've always impressed me.

You never cease to amaze with these technical drawings! The details are fantastic! The reflections, the partially open door, the emblem and all the other parts are so incredibly well and realistically rendered. This is a joy to stare at. :clap:

Love the blade shadowing, it goes well with the general colour sheme of the 'copter. Other than the obvious, is always amazes me how you get the letters so clean!
That emblem looks tricky too.
Great work!

Thank you (for the favorite too). Lettering has always been my thing for some reason. I just like to do it. Yes, the emblem took a little time with it being on a rounded surface. It was good practice though.

wow! amazing detail (as always) and the insignia are 100% correct (I'm from Greece :) ). Extremely well done!

Here's the Greek word for Helicopter= Elikoptero (spelled eleekoptero) :) The Greek navy/army regular helicopter pilots are from the most well paid recruits of the Greek military (along with F-16 pilots).

That's one of the reasons I drew it.:) I knew you were from Greece plus I've never drawn anything from your country. About time huh!LOL That insignia is cool. Hard to draw in that perspective but still...it's cool.
Thanks for the Greek lesson. I'll add that to my vocabulary.

Hey thanks. Yes, I'm kind of an aviation freak. Still surprises me that I'm interested after all this time working in and on them though. I guess you could say I'm a wing-nut!LOL
