Skinners – Skinook Heavy Transport Chopper










The Skinook is a very basic some would say crude twin rotary wing aircraft used extensively by the Skinners to transport both troops and equipment around the battlefield. It is lightly armed but extremely rugged and is usually escorted by dedicated gunships capable of engaging both air and ground targets in its defence. The passengers sit in the open sided main cabin and have been known to add their own small arms fire to the aircrafts defence. A rear drop down ramp allows for easy loading of cargo and light vehicles like bikes.

Armament is usually twin heavy machine guns mounted in the nose and a door mounted light machine gun to port and starboard, but other armaments have been observed.

This set contains:

1 x fuselage

2 x rotors

1 x rear ramp

1 x passenger cabin roof

1 x cargo hook (can be used to hide the flight stand recess)

1 x chin HMG mount

4 x landing skids

2 x Gobblers door gunners

1 x Skinners passenger group and 2 x Gobblers door gunners

Note: The rotors have been cast with supporting sprue sections between the rotor fins themselves to aid casting, these need to be carefully snipped away.

Resin cast multi-part kit with metal cast passengers and door gunners

Approximate model dimensions: Length 80mms not including MG’s, Hull width 20mms

Nah this is the best one in the range



If you can do it in a phantom you can do it in anything...... how the real world proved that anything can fly if you strap a big enough engine to it.

These skinner aircraft are just so cool....

However the current plan is to get the novan ground crew and make a little diorama for my aircraft.

Don't worry you can do both, it's not like your paying GW prices.
