Hi,

Progress has been made.

Since last update, I have gloss coated model and applied most of the decals, they performed very well, however they are not representing real air frame. If  you want to build real thing - buy aftermarket decals.

Landing gear has been installed as well; wings with weapons finished (but not glued)

Few things left to do, with mayor one being reattaching nose antenna.

If anyone has any advise how to do it, please let me know...


Cheers!!!

Hi

Here is another quick update, to summarize whats have been done since last update.

- All decals applied and after unsuccessful attempt in panel washing flat coated,

- Handles have been added along the way, some of them several times (three remaining - one on the canopy and two on engine intakes)

- Red antennae in front of canopy and two on the rear fuselage added,

- Canopy unmasked,

- Front antenna painted in cream tone and with help of spare decals two black stripes applied.

Here is photo showing remaining parts (minus rotors).

Not much left to do really - glue everything together and call it done...  

Cheers!!!

Wings, canon & handles attached.

Gluing setup for front antenna is shown on photo - gunze bottle opener + plastic card shimmed with toothpick in order to hopefully get it right  (sorry for the LED blue effect).

Remaining parts are engine exhausts and rotors...

Quick update

Antenna is finally there, unfortunately it is not horizontal - if I accidentally knock it over I know how to fix it...

Engine exhausts have been drybrushed with aluminium and glued

One overall view

I have managed to lost one of the handles which I installed on the intakes during handling of the model. 

SAR mission is ongoing :rage:

Cheers!!!

Cheers!!!
