desert falcon Posted June 28, 2020 Share Posted June 28, 2020 Morning all, Despite the fact I had previously cancelled my attendance for this GB (due the unfortunate fact I was made redundant a couple of weeks ago and is in the middle of relocating back to Europe), I’ve decided to give it a go if ok with you guys. After ‘sorting things’ all day long, I’m in serious need of some “bench therapy” in the evenings I will likely not be able to finish this build before the deadline, as in a couple of week’s time tools, stash, bench and everything else will have to be packed and shipped by sea to the high north, but at least I’ll give it a try. In case I miss the deadline, I'll just show the final result in the RFI section at a later point. So here is the kit, as can be seen it’s the Hasegawa AH-64 Apache Longbow in scale 1/72. It comes with decals for only one US Army version but with the choice of two different tail numbers. Some more pictures of the sprues and instructions. As per the instructions; “The prototype Longbow was modified from two AH-64A Apache’s, of which this model is an accurate representation”. Given the time constraints on my side it will be OBB not spending to much time on details like shading and weathering, as my main target will be to have it finished before leaving Dubai. Colour wise the instructions are calling for a plain matt black in the cockpit and H52 olive drab for the externals. Olive drab might be a bit to green I think, will likely give it a green-black-grey'ish appearance, will have to see what I can source locally. Wishing you all a safe and productive Sunday ahead Cheers Johnny b 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
