Hi All, It's been a while since my post on the hangar thread about my build plans. I actually had planned to bring the kits and several (read: limited) tool with me to work (I work in an off-shore rig). And hence, my progress will be very slow and filled with blurry pictures from my phone. Start with the cockpit I spray the tub with Tamiya XF-69 Nato Black and brushed the panels with Revell Panzergrau, and Revell Mausgrau. And permanent marker pen for the screens. The weathering was done with Tamiya brown panel liner wash, Flory model wash, and dusting with Tamiya weathering pastel. I tried to hold the weathering to a minimum, since the references I found on-line didn't show too much dust and dirt inside the canopy. Surprising, since I imagine Apache would mostly operates from FARPS and fly low. For this build I want to try to mixed my own Helo Drab by mixing Nato Black, Khaki Drab, and JGSDF Olive Drab, with MM Enamel US Helo Drab as the benchmark. Apache got a black yet roomy cockpit, and Hase provide nice pair of Pilot and Copilot/Gunner (CP/G), but they have same face and generic pose. So I took a leap of faith and modify them a bit. That's all for now.. I hope I can finish the figures in the next few days (well, more like a week probably), but first I have to figure how to primer them since I got mine left at home. Any comments are welcome... Cheers, Mario Indonesia
Hello folks this is Tamiya's stug3b built oob. usual tamiya, built was a breeze, working suspension was a real nice touch but of course the vinyl tracks are letting down. anyway the model isn't mine and i was asked not to do any kind of weathering, tho there is still panel fading, drybrushing and pinwashes. enjoy.
Hello all, this will be my entry to the GB. initially i was thinking of doing a 1/72 HB Bombcat but lately this A-37b came as a commission build, i thought it'd be a subject better suited for this GB Began the kit yesterday: After a day this is where i am at, fuselage is closed and mated with the wings: Fit wise OK, there are issues in the usual places like the inlets but nothing extraordinary so far. Cockpit will receive seatbelts, IP and it's coaming, than an oil wash to pop the details a bit more. Aircraft will be South VNam AirForce in the usual SEA camo, after a brief search the loadout is probably going to be: 2x underwing tanks 2x mk82 slicks 1x gunpod 1x rocket pod.
