  1. 1/48 WAH-64 Apache advice

    l have the Hasegawa kit but lucked out and got the IDF version with resin conversion in it cheap! The cockpit is typical Hasegawa and needs sprucing up. You can either go the Eduard route with PE or go the Aires route with resin replacement. No matter what you choose there is not really decent straight out of the box kits if you want better detail. The original Monogram "A" version is not bad . Well detailed for the age but Revell fell short with the "D" add on parts. They would have been better off going for a straight new model on this but hey l am just a builder who likes a challenge Hacker ....mentally challenged too
  2. 1/48 WAH-64 Apache advice

    having built the Revell one it is a bit of a pig to build. It's the old Monogram A with an extra sprue to make the D in either US Army or British Army. The cockpit needs a lot of help and the fit of the new parts is not good. Saying that it did come out ok with some elbow grease. You will need to make or buy the rocket pods used on the british version as they are not provided in the kit. There is an after market set to make the Hasegawa one into a WAH version which would be a better route which would work on the Italeri one as l do not think it comes with those parts. l did a build on here somewhere but whether you have to the apps to see my pictures on photobucket you can see what needs to be done. Hacker......ho ho baw hum bug lol

  9. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/china-orders-north-korean-business-closed-under-u-n-sanctions-n805506 https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-missiles-china-labor/as-sanctions-bite-north-korean-workers-leave-chinese-border-hub-idUSKCN1C70PC There is another twist on this. It maybe an excuse to send thousands of North Korean workers home. Though it maybe true on the pollution part but it does speed up sending people back to North Korea hacker
  10. Beer jokes

    "Yesterday, scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones. To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, couldn't drive, and refused to apologize when wrong. No further testing is planned." Hacker and yes l have drank Spitfire beer

  15. Tamiya releasing new paint range

    Might be that MRP paints are taken the modeling world by storm and they might feel that it is cutting into their market. Lets face it paints have changed a lot and MRP paints are leading the way on that. Lacquers spray better then acrylics and the new formulas make it better then Floquil was in the day. Hacker...my opinion does not count in my house lol
