Hasegawa's 1/72 SH60B gets some help with a ceiling, Senso rack from styrene, RAST from tubing and a Sonobouy rack from sheet plastic and aluminum tubing. Still need to make the seats and associated parts for the back end.Check the Review page for the HSL51 Warlords kit reviews.

Acadamy's 1/48 AH64D Longbow. By this time I have painted the kit in overall green and overpainted that in "fied applied" Sand. This is very thin in places to allow the decals to show thru, as well as where it would have worn off. I applied Rubber Cement and allowed it to dry to various areas before applying the sand, then removed the RC. That gives the flaked off effect. Here I have applied and begun to remove oil washes.
