New Scale Model Build.

I thought that I would kill some time during this social distancing thing to work on another model. Although I haven't finished my train build yet (still have to make the caboose) I thought I would take a break from it to build something different. So here we go again. After 9 hours, I called it a day.

It's been a while. I thought it was about time. As time consuming as these builds are, they truly are relaxing to me.

What is it, it looks like what we use to call a rail job or sling shot, or a dragster.

When it's all said and done Jim, I'm hoping it will be an Apache Helicopter.

After another 6 hours in the shop, I managed to get 4 more pieces made. I made the front landing gear supports and started in on the tail body and tail wing assembly. A few dry fits and the day was gone. Amazing how fast the time slips away from you when you are enjoying yourself.

Spent another 7 hours in the shop today. Managed to get the tail trim and the tail base made and installed. Also installed the tail and the rear wing. Got the cockpit seats and lower base plate made and installed as well as the lower front gun. I didn't want it to be stationary so I made it to rotate and pivot. I started in on the cockpit framework but decided to call it a day after 7 hours. I will do more shaping on the framework next weekend I guess.

Spent the day in the shop with an exercise in patience and careful hand filing and sanding to get the cockpit and the cabin assembled. The only other piece I got made was the main rotor's base plate. Not to worry, I will be working on it again tomorrow.

Spent another 8 1/2 hours on the model again today. Managed to get the front wings done as well as the rocket launcher and the missile racks. I started to work on the missile but felt myself getting tired so I called it a day for the sake of safety. Will continue next weekend.

I was busy filming for the show and working on another project today so I only got 5 hours in on the build. (I know, I know.....what a slacker). Either way, I got the missiles finished and installed and got the front wheels made and installed. That was it. Sure doesn't sound like much when you put it that way.

Spent another 6 hours on the model today. I worked on the rear rotor, the tail trim fin and some trim pieces for the top of the copter. The rear rotor is really what took all the time though. It was a good day.
