  1. Finally finished... Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4, ZK 343 "BX", 29 Squadron, RAF Coningsby, 2014. Not the best Kit with some fit issues on the overengineered Intake Area. Really happy to be done with it at last :rolleyes:/>
  2. Just finished my 1/48 Academy-Hasegawa-Scratch-Kitbash of the MD500 Defender "Lahatut" A really enjoyable build - I love those litte tiny killers :woot.gif:/>

  7. Amazing I really love the paintjob!
  8. Thank you for aour kind replys. I'm very happy that you like the kit and how it comes out. @Exhausted You're right with the tailhook... I simply forgot it :-(
  9. The (virtual) Original The Boeing-Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche finally saw its comissioning after 21 years of development and the first helicopters saw duty in the US Army in 2004. In 2006 the United States Marine Corps decided to use this helicopter as a replacement for the aging AH-1 Cobras. So in 2009 the first USMC Comanches were delivered, replacing the Cobra as a light attack helicopter. The kit The Kit is the old Italeri Kit in 1/48 scale and unfortunately it is very rare and hard to get. A very simple Kit, especially the cockpit, it's in need of a lot of work to do. So the 'pit was build with a lot of scratch, e.g. a complete new console for the Gunner, revised seats and the back board in the cockpit. New sidewalls in the cockpit had also to be done, because in the kit there's nothing between the cockpit and the hull of the helicopter. Outside an Avionicbay was build, some wires were laid into the bays. On the rear two fins were made, these were there on the original Prototype 2 due to stability issues. The Radar radome was also completely made from scratch. The Hellfire's under the wings were taken from a Hasegawa AH-64 because the kit parts are wrong in shape and lack of detail. I painted the kit in Gunze FS36375 and FS 35237 for the typical USMC Scheme. The Decals were taken from the kit, from an Italeri AH-1W kit and out of the junk box. In conclusion I really enjoyed this build, although there was a lot of work to do. But if I'll get another one of these, I will definately put my hands on it again. I hope you like this one and I'm looking forward for your critique. And sorry for my bad english... it's been a while since I wrote or spoke in english.
