Italeri Mania, it's WAH-64 and AW-101 time's up


Recommended Posts

OK I think that is the missing pictures restored, I think I have a problem on my Win10 pc, these just inserted nicely on my tablet.

 

Investigation underway

  • 2 weeks later...

Trying out the rotors and replaced starboard bubble

Still milliards of antenna-greeblies going on but also rotor blade painting is on.

 

It is more complicated than the FAA Merlin scheme and will take a while longer.

Much to do...

 

Upper door to remake, just so I can find the original.

Thank you gentles all

 

I am not happy with the white but it is what it is, if I had found another on the web last week I would be redoing from start but this week I hate it less so it stays in play although there is much to do to tidy it proper like.

Looks very good to me Bill, but then I didn’t have any of the frustrations building it!

I know how you feel matey but it’s still a lovely model. :)

Much to do..

And so much done. Bill that looks fantastic. Work has me so bogged down at the moment all these lovely models look so much fun. I must get some quality bench time.

Cheers Johnny, do get  down to it my boy please.

 

Anyone know why?

Strange behaviour I know but...

Oh well there must have been a reason.

Cheers Chris I am hoping to have a nice looking helicopter at the end of  this 'journey'

 

In the pursuit of that end I had my recently ordered yellow 'decal sheet' order in from Big H and have decided to try using it instead of layers of oddball yellow paint on the rotor tips

 

Here we are on top

And here underneath

 

P1010494.jpg

 

I always 'have a 'mare' with painting yellow and the rotor tips are guaranteed to catch the eye and usually look grim if I use paint so this had to be a worthwhile experiment.

 

Did it succeed?

 

YOU are the beholders, whassay?

 

The metal leading edges (of very weird oddball shapes) will be re-touched in later, they aren't staying raggedy.

Yellow tips look good to me Bill along with the rest of your Merlin

 

  Stay safe           Roger

As above, yellow decal tips look spot on, even with heavy magnification. Top job :worthy:

They look cracking to me! 

I've only got and done it.....

Pushed the button on another one 😣

I think my new one will be a Cormorant, or maybe Portuguese.

 

Unsurity rules...
