Today I'd like to share a recent finish, and a former champion on the Shelf of Doom. This kit, like the Monogram F-80 I recently completed, was not a difficult build, but it was indeed not without setbacks and "mo-jo killers". [...]
What a fun build this was, the Italeri 1/72 RAH-66 Comanche Only 2 prototypes were ever made and the one was black and the other Helo Drab. I decided to do something a little different and created a What if US marines version. This [...]
