Looks very nice so far. I would like to build Apache in 1/72, so i am going to follow your next steps.

The top side paint is applied in several layers, with a dabbed-on covering lacquer being applied in between. Tomorrow I want to be able to apply the final coat of paint

Condition pictures of the surface design of an already weathered and stressed paint. I have worked again and again with dabbed-on covering varnish between the layers of paint. The last two pictures are the most unspectacular, but show the final state of my efforts. Unfortunately you can't see the now rather subtle weathering due to the strong clear varnish gloss - but tomorrow you can see the decals on it! 🙂

Eleven pictures finish this gallery, the !Apache! is completed! That was quite an unusual building experience, nothing to compare with, let´s say, a Hasegawa Mustang: this Accurate Miniatures parts are very crisp and in most parts full of fine structures and details, while in other areas they are completely lacking. It´s funny to say, but that is not such an easy as one would assume. There is plenty of room and need for improvements and some parts have to be made entirely from scratch: for example all the kits gun barrels are completely useless- and the landing lights are completely missing and had to be improvised with various spare parts.
But that is not complaint: that is a pretty kit quite worth building!
Thank you for your interest and motivating comments, mates!

Very sharp! I believe this particular A-36 is in a mag I have on early variants. Working on Hobbycraft's 'Torch' Mustang, myself

Thank you Rick! It´s a pity I could not use the US-flag on its tail- an interesting A-36 indeed! Have fun with your "Torch" Mustang!
