    Thanks. It can be barely seen on the pictures but it's in there when look at it with your eyes.
  2. Wonderful! Another great Apache on this forum in last few weeks.
  3. Uff. I was about to glue the H-bar when I found this thread.

    Another question. I was going through the KH instruction and found the third seat between the gunners' seats. I spent a day searching the internet and it doesn't look correct. Based on what I found there should be no seat at all. And for sure not facing fwd but eventually aft. Correct?

    What is the Pave Hawk cabine gray color? Is it FS36231?
  6. Really nice job. I have to give a try mine some time.

    This is the Doyusha 1/144 B-1B (Academy). Basically out of the box. Painted with Hataka and Gunze. First of all I messed this one up heavily . Not sure exactly how but the paint mist entered the cabin (most likely through the nose gear bay holes) and there is some kind of dust on the canopy inner surface. I almost flight tested her from the 5th floor once I pulled the masks off. I tried to clean it by drilling a small hole in the gear bay but it was too small for any cotton swab. Finally I over tinted the canopy to fade the dust a little but it didn’t help much. So at the end of the day I gave up on farther weathering and just finished her as is. I was so frustrated that I even skipped the nav lights. Nevertheless this is not an easy kit by any means. Forward fuselage fit is very bad and I had to use a lot of epoxy putty. Engine cowls are a nightmare. Thanks for watching. Dan
  8. Very nice! One of the best 1/48 Apaches I have seen so far. How was the fit? I heard there are some problems with the nose area which stops me for taking a shot on my two Hasegawa Guardians I have in my stash.
  9. Looks really good. What are the seat belts you used?
  10. Very nice! How was the fit of the bottom? I saw other builds and that seem to be very problematic. I got two Es in my stash with new exhausts but I am not brave enough to start the build.
  11. Moving forwad with the build. There is some putty required on skids' support but the real pain is the engine bay assembly. Need to be very careful to make them aligned and dry fit multiple times and sand to minimize the gaps. Since the rivets are everywhere using the putty and sanding is out of question. The only option is to wipe off the excess with a solvent or thinner.
  12. The BONE is powered by F101-GE-102 not F404.
  13. I also got two from two different sellers and both are fine. No cracks.
