Model Apache Longbow AH-64D – 1/48 Italeri – Finishing Touches
Hello there! Let’s continue the work. I’ve masked those parts off camera. It doesn’t look good. Propellers are bent but towards the upside. I double-checked everything
nothing is upside-down. I heard about the curious method of
reshaping plastic using a hairdryer. let’s give it a try. Well… It doesn’t work. I will reshape it manually Now everything is okay. I had to prepare a lot of small parts. I hope you will forgive me I did it off camera. Painting time!
Black primer. Some NATO Black to add a color variation. And blending with Flat Black. Olive Drab. Parts with a gloss varnish on.
It darkened a lot. Now some decals on rockets. I will use this dark brown paneliner. Cleaning with a cloth moisten in a white spirit. Couple layers of matt varnish. CA glue. Flat Black. Steel pigment for metal parts. Time to remove masks. I cleaned the canopy with an alcohol and
attached doors. I will try to give this part a glowing look. First red inside. Then brass outside. Brass is transparent,
so you can see a little bit of red from some angles. A little more dark steel pigment. One tiny detail is still missing. And that’s it. This model has the most boring painting pattern possible. Everything, even rockets,
is olive drab. I tried to make it a little more varied. But I didn’t achieve much. But anyway,
it looks much better than I expected. If you liked this movie,

older movies. If you want to jump to your favorite part,
just click the link in the movie description. Let me know in the comments section if it’s convenient to you. You might have noticed I always add English and Polish subtitles for my movies. I know many of you speak other languages,
since you live all around the world. Could you consider helping me to translate my movies? It would have been
beneficial for modelers from your country, and for people with hearing problems. You can add a new translation in the YouTube subtitle setup menu. And remember,
you don’t have to do all the work yourself
or at one go. All the help is appreciated. Cheers!
