AH-64 Apache, Revell 1/32

Recommended Posts

I've been working a bit both here and there! :)

Parts to the loadout.

The main rotor.

I glued the rear rotor.

Part of the rotor assembly on top of the cockpit.

Which also shows the color I've choosed to use.

 

Fitting the cockpit took some work, and I hope I've done enough, as I glued the cockpit to one fuselage half.

Next I'll be joining the fuselage halves.

 

I've also dipped the glass in future/pledge.

Not easy as an airplane canopy as the windows are large and flat.

Shawn, I assume by looking at your build, that you had problems joining the fuselage due to the cockpit?

Need to check where the problem is and try to sort it.

Ok, could be possible, as the casting is part of the issue.

 

I tried to fit the other half, and it turned out like this, more or less.

So in order to try and correct that, I painted white on suspected parts of the cockpit.

And here's the culprit. :)

I did some sanding like this.

I think it is enough, or at least should lessen the pressure some, meaning enough to get the fuselage together.

Thanks Maru! :)

 

Yes, I think the details is very nice considering the age of the kit.

 

I think I can make the deadline. Once the body is glued properly, I can start puttying and sanding, and then paint.

Good that most parts should have the same color. :)

Gluing the fuselage was no easy task as something still was in the way somewhere, but I decided to proceed anyway.

I took a pic when I've glued the front and held it together with mild violence! :)

I let it rest during the night and most of the day, before I continued with the rest of the body.

I just had to take a pic with the rotor on

Looks pretty nice I think! :)

 

I've also masked all the glass, in- and outside.

Still not entirely done with the body, but will be, and can start puttying soon.

I also have a lot of small parts like weapons and gear to paint. I'm happy it's still progressing! :)
