Two Italian Indians..
November 28, 2012 in Aviation
Ok ok, maybe not, how about a couple of 1/72 Italeri AH-64D Longbows… with a touch of modelling applied.
Just finished these two, and they were jolly good fun.
The camo one is my effort to model an Israeli Saraf, and the grey one, is my take on the Sea Apache proposal, in Whiffer RNZAF markings.
The Sea Apache ended up being pretty straight forward, and the Saraf a pain with all the extra bumps and lumps.
Home made deccles, prop blurs, plenty of plasticard, sprue, milliput and lashings of elbow grease were used.
Harpoons were made from a couple of sections of large diameter sprue, the fuel tanks are cut n’ shut from an Airfix Harrier GR3. Aircrew are from various kits.
All the best
