    The detail painting on the consoles looks fantastic !!!!

  • Allan J Withers said 2 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Thanks Louis, done with a silver pencil !!

  • Allan J Withers said 2 months ago:

    I added some wire mesh, twice, only got one bit right first time, too much super glue around the edges of the mesh so I recessed the edges of the openings, painted black inside the tail, tacked the interior to one fuselage side, then glued both sides together, getting there !!

    Your chopper is looking good my friend !!!!! Nice photos of your progress. Thanks for the updates.

  • Allan J Withers said 2 months ago:

    Thanks Louis, the interior didn’t fit as well as I thought, needed some adjustment, the fuselage needs some filling for the canopy to fit, not one of Italeri’s better kits !!

    I’m sure that you will get it all sorted out my friend………… Some kits fight you a little more than others do………. It will turn out great in the end.

    Wire mesh second time around, more adjustment of window frames and touch up of interior paint, getting there !!
