Coming to the end of a rotary build I enjoyed most/some/all of the way (you choose the accurate option) of the Airfix Bristol Belvedere I decided my next build would be Out Of The Box and easy and coupled with a more detailable build. I like having two models on the boil at once and having had a difficulty with my last build's second model which need time to resolve decided on these For you consideration a stash reducing exercise My wife bought me an Apache model in a small shop in Caernarfon as a gift "No go on I can see you like it!" as I was trying to see if it was any good So I have the Apache purporting to be a Royal Army AH-64D Longbow This one And I have just about all the internal detail info I need for OOB here It certainly does put me in the cockpit with several pictures of the front and rear i.ps and graphic tales of desperate times to dip into again. A start has been made But I have immediately hit a snag, whatever is in the box is NOT what Italeri put on the outside There are some decent colour pictures of British Army and Dutch Apaches to compare with look Rather large discrepancies on the rear end of the sponsons A drawing might be clearer This shows some of the differences, the thicker line is the desired shape sponson The curvy cross hatched line show what we got Have to go away and consider whether OOB will swing it for me now Ciao
