1/72 Academy Apache

Started on my Academy 1/72 Apache. Quite a nice kit, cockpit consists of raised details (perfect for drybrushing although decals were provided). Comes with both raised and recessed panel lines. Recessed panel lines need to be deepened as they are too shallow. Simple color scheme.

Building this kit OOB, will not pay attention to details. Hence, i just sprayed the whole cockpit flat black, drybrushed silver on the instrument panels. Results look great to me.

Next, i assembled the body, surprisingly good fitting so far. After applying cement, not much need for putty except for some careless areas. Dipped canopy in Future, left to dry and cure for 1 day.
