Very nice build. But regarding the fast rope, did you find some mention of that from that war? Until the mid to late 80s, rappelling was the way by rope to the ground from military helicopters unable to land due to confined spaces. Or rope ladders.

all doors are open by Gallery kit, only glued , the sliding windows have no rails, so scratch for open
the Engine doors need closing cylinders (from Hasegawa Phantom speed brakes)
the handles on winow frame and on the front are from Sparebox (1/35 tanks)
Gallery hs not delivered antenna , so check the different version on photos..
