Revised AH-64 Apache's Canon
I was happy with my results working with metal for this AH-64 helicopter so I thought
I could add some metal parts to the kits canon. Remember...it's cut and fit until it fit's.
Hope you like the outcome of my efforts.
When I showed these items at my club's monthly meeting, other modelers started to make parts out of copper, brass and aluminum. Brass is the hardest metal and aluminum is more or less the softer of the 3 metals. However with a bit of experience you can make the same part using all 3 metals. I bought sheet aluminum, brass and copper at our local model shop called "D and J Hobbies." back in the 1990's. Sadly, due to the internet's buying power, "D&J" is no longer in business.
My next segment on this "Chopper-Helo" model will show over 700 replaced rivets, so stay tuned to this website. RJW.
