    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    Apparently Hypersonic IS coming out with a 1/48 SR-71. Well that does it.

    Agreed.... that Trumpeter -4 left a lot to be desired
  3. We live in wonderful modeling times. Personally I can't get enough of what is available - but here is my top 5 list of kits I'd like to see: Model Airplane Maker What about you?

    1/48 Hasegawa AH-64D AZ National Guard

    Huh! See? You learn something new every day! Thanks again Dutch. Tonight I sanded the putty spots and inserted some strip into some gaps. Tomorrow i’ll Probably end up installing the canopy and the 100 little bits. Then It might actually be ready for prime and paint
  5. I like the idea. I’d love to do a lunar lander. My concern is there is no accurate model of it.

    1/48 Hasegawa AH-64D AZ National Guard

    Yes - so far I am going with the Black green darkened 9:1 with flat black. Any more black and it just becomes a new Nato black! I am still not sure whether to go "museum finish" or weather it a little.

    1/48 Hasegawa AH-64D AZ National Guard

    I am bouncing all over with this build - the instructions are a bit of a mess and the fact I am also trying to do the eduard PE in a logical sequence does not help! That said - I am still making a lot of progress. As you can see, the fit on the "nose" of the Apache is atrocious and I really REALLY tried to get this to align properly. It is all very fixable but it doesn't look great right now. The rivets on the bottom of the fuselage were mostly kept intact during the mating of the halves but I lost a lot down the centre. The good thing is that there are a lot of add on details that cover up more than half of these spots. I do not know a good way to replace raised rivets so I might just engrave some and call it a day.

    Where are you going modelwise in 2019?

    Nice!! My plan is to finish the 1/48 Apache (I am "almost" at the priming stage), then do that Fujimi Babs. Follow that with the WnW Albatros. I'm sure to be able to finish a couple more but those are the "for sures" for 2019.

    A6M-3 Hamp questions

    Thanks for this info! But one thing I’d like to know is the difference between Mitsubishi and Nakajima green for the cockpit.

    Pleasure!! It was fun and the lower number of prizes/participants meant the page updating was reasonable! Haha.. Now to figure out what to write in an "end of year" blog post.
