    Yes, I’ll be pleased to see the outcome as well!

    Interesting painting...I’m anxious to see this one done. I know it will turn out great as always but the journey there with the airbrush is a bit intriguing
  3. Here are few more pics here...with good comparisons of the real thing....even the exhaust cans.... http://tieba.baidu.com/photo/p?kw=模型类新闻&flux=1&tid=5626472221&pic_id=d61d724bd11373f0b2cb97e9a80f4bfbfaed04aa&pn=1&fp=2&see_lz=1&red_tag=d2791895751#!/pidd61d724bd11373f0b2cb97e9a80f4bfbfaed04aa/pn1
  4. Yes...the ALCM rotary launcher has two “ bulkhead” type mounting yokes and not a drive like depicted. The lower ALCM on the launcher almost touches the bomb bay doors when closed. The upper portion of they bay is the mid body fuel tanks...

    Another great looking build Ian... The seat looks great! How did you paint the harness?

    Me too...and it was nice to see the harness done right!

    Outstanding! We look forward to the next build!
  8. Wow! Great choice of schemes. I already see two that I’d like to build...inaccuracies and all!

    Seat looks good! Are those decals on the harness stitching?

    I did get the Akin from LH but that is a little hit or miss. I just ordered the MRP from Hobbyworld so I will be giving that a try soon... Sorry to highjack the thread a little Ian . Looking forward to seeing more MiG!

    Looking good. I like the cockpit color. While it's bright, by the time you close up the canopy, it will look great. I've had the damnedest time finding good "modern Russian" paint in the US. It's difficult to get the Akin and the standard fare around here is Tamiya (my point of choice) and Testors. I'm stuck on a 1/32 Su-27 and Mig 29A I'm waiting to find the right paint for. I'm going to try some Mr. Paint but that's a mail order situation...

    Wait...what the... I almost missed this one! Look forward to seeing this one built...was always afraid I’d see one of these in real life .

    Beautiful model. Tells us a little about the build and finish!
  14. I love the size comparison...nice add to the build! It really gives you a sense of how big the Apache is and how much smaller the Hind is in real life! Too me, Hinds always looked big and bulky until I saw one in real life.

    Watching with interest. I like the Edward stuff it looks really crisp, however there's nothing as therapeutic as trying to touch the little cockpit protrusions with a cocktail stick with a dab of paint on it. Especially when I keep hearing the voices in my head arguing about the color. I know this will be a sharp build! They always are!
