Congratulations on a new home! Things must be going well for you.


Not at all , we had to get a loan but we were lucky to make a fast decision and get a flat with special price :)

I know it's a model for "Land" section but this is only a presentation, not a beginning of WIP.I've traden my M1117 for Merkava IV and I have another stupid idea :)
I have an idea to make a production version of  this:


...out of this:

Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Well, I'll be waiting for it to appear in the "Land" section! 8)

Some time ago I've decided to make models of all helicopters from the "Crow" program. Here is AH-64 Apache.
Set is Academy, scale 1/48. I'll never buy Academykit again. An extremely vague instruction, tragic decals, form marks everywhere. Fit is not better. I'd be better buying a Italeri set. Polish markings, of course. Painting is Mr. Hobby and Tamiya. Weathering was dome using AK and Tamiya fluids.

Whatever challenges you faced with this kit certainly aren't evident in the finished model, Artoor.

It looks every bit the winner and your weathering is very well done. I especially like your rendering of that gray scheme!

Great stuff!

I like it too and you've managed to hide the imperfections of this kit very well!
Great job  :)
