I did my diffuser with black window screen material

I still need to paint it with a better flat paint, I'll probably use some small screws to hold it on

going a little further on the cockpit. I have some rivet detail on the seat structure. Just installed the glare shields over the two instrument panels.

Because of the angle of the front and rear canopy former, the front gunner's panel has to be glued to the inside of the canopy, and comes off with the canopy. side console panels are still white styrene

If I had an Apache or Cobra, after seeing this build, I would just run mine over!!!!!!!

Great job, and fantastic detailing and ideas....
Thanks for sharing.....

yes I am about to start the panel lines and rivets too. I am not so good at weathering, so I dont know how much of that it will have....

I will give it a try though..

jzanutto how are you doing panel lines, are you going to use a small file to scratch them in , how will you do this mate? i am new to all this building so i appreciate any ones ideas. when i do my weathering i am just going to rub charcoal dust along all rivets and hopefully in my panel lines untill i get desired effect. this may be all wrong as this is my first fuse i have built but i am enjoying building this and watching the progress of all the boys doing approach fuses on this forum

that depends on how much detail you are trying to get. If you want a superscale then I've heard of guys using the end of a mechanical pencil to scribe in a panel line.

For fun scale (which is where I'm at) you can just use a fine tip sharpie or a nice fine pencil line. a pencil line next to the raised rivets looks pretty darn good , unless of course you are going to the scale nationals or something like that

I cant do pilots, because the cockpit floor is at the same level as the bottom seat cushion. They would be cut off. So I dont really want that look.

I am going to do some seat cushions, I will do balsa inserts and then cover them with some of my wife's art canvas and then paint it the appropriate color. It should look like cloth still.

sounds like a plan. keep up the great work, and thanx for doing the detailed build thread. i'm debating doing a cobra, or apache. this cobra is very nice. leaning that direction. can't wait to see it fly.fly it like you stole it

well I tell you what, for the price you wont get a helicopter that big. And the amount of detail is really up to you.

the build is pretty easy if you've done any kit building before.....

either the cobra or apache will work. The apache is wider, consider your mechanics, whether you are glow or electric. I have a raptor 50 with an OS 50 hyper in this thing and it is very light for it's size. Mild aerobatics will be a snap. though I dont think I will do much of them

I tried doing some seat cushions from 1/4" balsa base, then stretched some of my wife's painting canvas over them. painted grey. I dunno, it looks a little grainy, I might wait and see how it looks when there are some belts laying across
