  1. I'm considering building an early, Cold War AH-64 using Monogram's old 1/48th scale kit. But this time around I'd rather not try to clean up Monogram's doughy, sink-marked AGM-114 Hellfire missiles. After some quick investigation, I think this Eduard kit can successfully represent early AGM-114s. Although it looks like I might have to use the Monogram rack and rails. Thoughts? Warnings? Advice?
  2. So, it seems I lost the whole thread with the recent database corruption problem the ARC encountered. A time to repost everything then! Yes, where was I. I've enjoyed building the gear bays. Everything went in easily and the multi part construction makes it easy to add details and paint them accurately. The gear bays look quite nice even as OOB but I ended up making them busier by adding several electric, hydraulic and fuel lines. After some careful detail painting now they need a coat of flat spray.
  3. I sense that we're about to get a new crop of M113 kits from Asian manufacturers, which is fantastic news. Meantime, I figured I'd go one last round with Tamiya's ancient kit. I built a lot of these, including a few as a kid. When I didn't have a lot of money, it was good value, as it includes a basic interior and has potential for improvement by a determined modeler. The included '60s-'70s era U.S. infantry aren't bad, and could be used to easily depict other nation's troops as well. This time around, I'm building toward a 36th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Armored Division M113 "s
  4. So, this has obviously been a long project and during the build I've described the kit with many negative words. You can read the WIP thread here http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/234466-172-tupolev-tu-22m3-backfire-by-trumpeter/ , but to make a long story short, the basic outlines on the kit - fuselage, wings, tails - are pretty accurate. I know there is one area that could have benefited from reshaping and that's the area around the engines on the rear fuselage, which on the real aircraft is, well, more bootylicious. 😎 The problems mostly lie in the details
  5. So I thought I'd start my first ever build here on the forums, with as my username suggests a Fitter. I've gone for the M2 Fitter D just because in my option it looks amazing. The kit is supplied on five sprues of decent flash free plastic. Included in the kit are drop tanks, rockets,bombs and a reconnaissance pod (although the M2 rarely carried them). To helm the kits overall look I've ordered myself some resin pilots as the kit doesn't have one . (Also excuse the bad 1:00 AM lighting)
  6. Here's one for our Cold War and artillery veterans: I'd like to build an M109A3 and M548 paired in road march, EUSAREUR, 1980s. When rolling along with the guns, what did M548s typically haul? Ammunition (per the AFV club kit), other gear, or crew? Or a combination these?
