Hello people! This is my first post here, I will be building the infamous 1/32 Revell UH-1D Gunship with the Dominican republic air force paint scheme and configuration, I'll be building the UH-1H FAD 3032, I want to try to do the best I can to get this kit up to today's standards.
Hi everyone! As painting is impossible in my modeling room currently (30 Celsius in the evenings nowadays), I set aside my Phantom project for a while and restarted an older project - Italeri Super Hornet. Many people wrote reviews about this kit's flaws and inaccuracies so I won't go into the details. We know this is not a Hasegawa offering, period.

Planned things: cockpit and canopy details, gun/radar bay, opened nose cone and extended radar equipment, avionics bays, folded wings wing and dropped flaps. I started this model years

Hi all, Long time since I last posted on ARC - but thought some might be interested in a project of mine that goes back a long way, but has just reached a bit of a tipping point with the fuselage halves together and heading for a full airframe. It's based on the old ID Models vac kit (now available from Tigger Models) - with a lot of scratch-building. Pretty well the only thing from the kit being used without major rebuilding are the fuselage halves. Anyway - getting there I think! Note - wings not fully seated at roots yet as I need to
