This show’s some photo’s of my clients 1/48 scale Apache helicopter.
This was my first “TRY” at making parts using a sheet of flat copper. I soldered the parts together.

To Paul; Spiros & Scott:
There is more of this kind of work coming! I lucked out in the mid 1980’s by going to George Lee’s home and watching him “scratch-build;”(S.B.) parts for a totally S.B. model. He and another “SB” modeler by the name of John Alcorn worked together at a nuclear bomb lab near San Jose, CA and were in the same model club that I joined.
They wrote two books together and I got copies of both of them, which taught me just about everything I needed to know to S.B. model parts. So from the early 1990’s it was “cut and fit; cut and fit until it fits.”
My helo’s canon is up next.
My photos and written data is recorded so it will help other modelers build better stuff. I taught model building from 1984-2004 in San Jose, CA and we had about 10-15 guys at the workshop. I also learned from the other modelers.
Thanks for your comments: RJW
