  1. The A321 is such an esthetic airliner to look at and you have certainly done it justice with your dedicated work and choice of livery
  2. Thanks for the tip on the paint Tim, your Apache is looking really good! As I can't get Hataka or Testors Helo Drab around here, I had to settle with Vallejo, Tamiya, Mr Hobby or AMMO MIG paints, which are all available from the two hobby stores we have here in Dubai. So my first attempt will be the Vallejo black green, hoping it will turn out ok. It doesn't have to be a perfect color match anyway, as long as it is not to far off how an Apache could look in real life. The canopy on the Hasegawa kit really deserves an upgrade, as it is really dull. So no reason to spend to much on the cockpit interior, which I just painted all black. Will be interesting to compare the Hataka Army Helo Drab with the Vallejo Dark Green. To be continued ...
  3. Take your time Filler, it's a joy watching your work!
  4. This is a sweet looking Wessex John - there is something sympathetic over it
  5. Primer on! Have to say that the Vallejo Mecha black primer went on very well without the slightest of issues. Will allow it to dry for 24 hours, before hopefully applying the first layer of Vallejo 71.018 black green tomorrow evening. The canopy comes as two parts, with the provisioning of showing the model with the rear cockpit access on the right side as either open or closed. Fitting it in the closed position gave me some issues, as the fit was rather bad. Tried to fill the gaps with some filler and white glue. Not a pretty sight, so expect to see only pictures of the left side in the gallery Thanks for watching!
  6. Absolute WOW !! The top picture looks like a painting to me, I'm sure Tamiya could use this for the box art
