[FERTIG] AH-64 Apache/Maly Modelarz 1:33

Chopper!!!
I have never built Chopper in my paper modeling life.
I found out this Chopper in my stock and cannot wait to start building though I am just started building an architecture model.

About real chopper there is no need to explain because it is too well known.

Today glued one sheet, on which framers are printed, out of total nine pages of A4 and assembled frames around cockpit.

Hello Yu,

how we can see here, you have begun with a new build immidetly after finishing your last model (Thunderbolt by Halinski). You are a hopeless paperkits-workoholic :D. I wish you good luck with the build of the Apache - I look to your progress in this relation .

best regards

Hello Alfred-san,

In other words, I’m a crazy paperkits modeler :D

Hi Gunni-san,

I’ll try my best to live up to your expectation.


I’ve beveled all edges and back side of folding lines of some parts shown in first picture to have sharp angle though that parts will be hidden behind the pilot seat.
This is for my self-satisfaction as a crazy maniac paper modeler.
This method might seem stupid but I think it is effective for small parts. If you have experienced tearing off surface of folding line it worth trying. May be….

Hi Fred,
You are the kindest person I have ever met since I was born!
I'll never burn out. On the contrary, I'll keep on going even you are fed up with my posting :D


Hi Norm-san
Well yew know, I'll build whut I wunt to build day an' naht 'cuz they are
purty.
An architectural model once in a while, a ship model from time to time, train model at intervals an' aviation model with frequency perhaps 'cuz I'm not only MAD but also MADD (Modelers Attention Deficit Disorder) patient.
You see what I'm saying o'buddy?

To be serious, I'm convinced building different genre of model will surely improve our skill.

Assembled instrument panel of front seat simply following kit instruction. After took photos I found out there are no pedals. Pedals are just depicted below instrument panel. I guess they must be installed closed to control stick. If so, I will make pedals though I'm not meticulous about details.

Since I was impatient to have pedals in the cockpit, cut out part of panel where pedal was depicted and made out pedals.

After pedals were ready for final assembly, first, glued parts pointed by orange color arrow then glued pedals.
Last picture is after added instrument panel of rear seat.

Workmanship of pedal making looks a bit sloppy but the pedal will not be clearly seen after completion of the model. Anyhow better than no pedals

You're a real maniac Yu ;) and I'm already very curious how the Apache will turn out - till now it looks great !!! BTW - do you still have room enough for the meanwhile big collection of your card models ?

Normoto sama,

It is my greatest pleasure that you were pleased with my froggy writing for which I spent long research time reading through an article about drawl. On the second thought, I should have spent that time for model making but seeing ol’buddy’s smile gave me happiness.

Mischa,

yes, I'm very much interested in ground vehicles. BTW, I ordered two tanks instead. I did want to make tracks.

Upper parts of 3 sides walls of my room has already been occupied by airplane models but still middle section is empty so that I can make more. My ship models are mainly 1/400 size and small size torpedo boat etc. I put them in a box.

pawell,

Ground targets for aircraft.... :D

Since the joystick provided in the kit is simple construction. Glue two sheets together as shown in first picture so, I made them. Materials are 1.5mm brass rod, peeled off thin layer of black color printed paper and 1mm thick card board.
Also parts encircled with orange color are not included. Cut out paper properly and made them.
Now, finished skinning around cockpit

Hi Norm,
aye-aye.

Today assembled canopy.
Before proceeding canopy assembly found out orange marked part should be grooved in order to fit end of canopy frame into there.

Glazed OHP film between outer and innter canopy skin. Eventually, it became thick so that it difficult to glue adjacent flames together.
To have better fit, chamfered backside of all edges of flames as you can see in second picture.

After canopy assembly joysticks are visible.

Hi Alfred
Yes, it really looks like short automobile not an aircraft but in a few days it will be full fredged aircraft. Stay tuned.

Arigato goseimas (Thank you very much) Norm-san,

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a weenie :D

Since I want to make orange encircled part in first picture not linear but round one, it resulted in long lasting war against the Paper troop unit.
Especially arrow pointed part doesn’t fit well so I had to slit and peel off part of paper after glued the skins together.
The war opened last night 10PM Japan standard time and ended 2AM the next day.
After cease fire inserted framer because I expected to make it round would be difficult task and didn’t glue framers beforehand.

Gluing tabs for between skins are not provided in this kit. I had to add them making them from scratch paper (4th picture)

Now, it looks like aircraft?

Thank you Peter and David for your notes.

Now, it looks like machine gun with vertical tail on :shot:

I didn't know this chopper's vertical tail is twisted leftwards.
Compared to Halinski kits takes longer time to fit each part but if you make it carefully there will be less problem.

From end of June until now I have been making paper model almost every day and it caused me pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back. Yesterday I had to go to bed early. Today recovered and, of course, modeling again.

Made basement of rotor. Fit is good. Assembled just following kit's instruction

Hi Glue me,

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N summer vacation from yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I am celebrating summer vacation building paper model :prost:

Seriously speaking, having checked passport, from middle of October last year until last week, I was away from home 180 days out of 300 days. During business trip I miss paper modeling so much that I can’t stop making model when I am at home until completely exhausted but there is no problem because I can alleviate the tension in my neck, shoulders and lower back, that are caused by paper modeling, during trips :D

Japanese typical way of having meal lasts in short time. According to my observation, perhaps Japanese is the smallest eater compared to the people in 23 countries, which I visited so far.
I have never ever suffered digestive trouble in Asian countries but in European countries from time to time I had trouble caused by too much eating. Salad, soup, 400-gram beefsteak and big five pieces of chocolate cakes for dessert are too big for me @) Is it European standard? ?(
BTW, I love German breakfast very much. Black bread -especially black bread - cereal with milk and fruits, boiled egg…I can’t forget the taste of it having had in a small hotel in Southern German.
I envy you German people because you can afford to have that nice bread every day :)

Greetings from rice eating far east,

Yu, another great work, congratulations so far.
Looks nice !!!
I´ll have a look at this thread....and still not know, what kind of a model
to choose for my first one....hard decision, very hard decision.
But maybe, before I create tons of paper dump I´ll try one of the trotsky-models to try cutting, glueing and so on.
Back to your model, sorry for the off topic....
It´s a beauty !!!
...that where the days, when KAMI came over me !!! :D

Jonny and Stephan,

I might be able to have two chopper friends :D
I ordered two more choppers by the way.

Today made parts where main landing gear is stowed.
Carefully assembled each section and checked fit then glued assembled parts to fuselage. Fit isn't so good that I spent relatively long time to glue it onto the fuselage.
Red arrow pointed round part is not included in the kit so rounded up scrap paper and inserted brass wire in it.

b) part of AN/ALQ-144 IRCM (IR jammer)
c) modernized Rubik's cube in shape of octagonal prism

Hi Stephan,
Thank you for your comment. In my opinion, by making good use of paper's characteristics we could make a paper model that looks better than plastic model and I want to try hard to achieve it.

Servus Robert-san,
:totlach: Yes it looks like Rubik's cube. Rubik's cube was also very popular in Japan in 80s. I remember I watched television program dealing with the Rubik's cube then.

Hi pawell,
This is the third time you gave me information or correction of my mistake. It's like I have free encyclopedia. The best point of this encyclopedia is that I don't need to take the trouble to look up it. It shows up automatically whenever I make mistake :D
Thank you very much every time =) and nice quiz!!!
