  1. Here's my offering chaps. I mentioned it in the chat thread a while back. This oddity below: a field applied mottled desert sand camo on a p-38. the only one i've been able to find online and maybe the only photo of this aircraft in existence? so theres gonna be some artistic license on this which will be fun. Something shake and bake simple that's in the stash I need for the build: a quality tamiya 1/48 p-38 F/G should fit the bill nicely. Theres (whats the collective term for aftermarket? 🤔) a 'trickyrichery' of aftermarket parts to play with including a set of rivets which i've not tried before (gulp). theres plenty of reviews online so i wont subject you to all the sprues but it looks lovely, except the lack of rivets.
  2. Hi, That's my latest build. Israeli Apache, AH-64D Saraf. Kit made by Academy, bought cheaply for 8 quid if I remember, it was ok at first glance. Then I bought a Aires cockpit set and a set of decals by Armycast. On top, I wanted to paint it with Hataka IAF paint set for modern rotors. Oh, and of course Eduard masks for canopy. Ok, where do I start.. Oh yeah, I had to adjust a cockpit to fit Academy kit (originally designed for Hasegawa), a lot of mess, but quite easy. Cockpit itself is absolutely BRILLIANT! Well detailed and well designed. Then I moved to the kit.. First disaster. Bad fit, even worse instructions, flash on most parts, etc. I was on a brink of depression. But at some point decided that it's not gonna be a masterpiece (never meant to be:P) so I'll just do whatever is necessary to just finish the model. I wasn't easy, trust me. Finally got to the stage of painting. Another disappointment - Hataka paints. I bought them because I've read some reviews that they're hassle free, easy to use and working well. I was struggling to even finish the first coats. Couldn't find the right ratio, airbrush constantly clogging etc. I've managed to spray base sand colour and gave up. Finished with some mixture of Tamiya paints. Very disappointing as set wasn't cheap. At least decals were brilliant as the cockpit. Anyways, managed to get to the end of the build and the result you can see below. I know, that there are parts missing, I know there is vast amount of errors referring to israeli version of the aircraft, but I simply couldn't care less after a disaster that this kit was. Please be kind.. Thank you for your attention! Bart
