It came out really nicely. The finish and setting are great. I like the quad-bikes and crewmen as well. Great job overall.

A couple small corrections. First, on the sides of the aircraft near the rear, you have the "L" shaped outline decals on a flat panel. These should be around a window, as you have near the front. They denote a removable escape window for the crew in the event of a crash. Also, on the rotor blade roots you have a yellow band and corresopnding yellow dot on each one. Each of these should be a different color so the crew can tell which blade goes where since they are each balanced and have to be put back on in the same place if/when removed. You can see the different blade color stripes below.
