With your cute cat in the background, ideally you should've displayed a Tomcat!! Lol!!
The model is okay ( do like the pattern) but I still think HM is far superior,plus the panel lines are like grooves. A big no no for me!!! Thanks for sharing anyway!
And oh, one more thing,...hope your cat keeps enjoying the hobby!!

You're absolutely right mate, the model is a little bit "coarse" and HM's quality is better indeed.
About the cats o' mine check here:

Nice model, really nice paint scheme and the cat, even better. I used to have the 1/48 Armour model of that aircraft. I should have kept it. Looks like your "Tomcat" was going to let the "Aggressor" make the first move. Thanks for the pics.

I was looking 4 the model in scale 1/48 for many years at the end I gave up and commissioned a resin "replica" to a fine modeller here in Italy, and this is the result:

Your resin replica looks fantastic. I haven't been satisfied with the diecast T-38 models out there, so I am currently working on a Sword 1/72 model. Almost ready to paint.

I have always liked the capabilities of the Apache but, in my opinion, nothing looks as sleek and cool as the Marine AH-1. I like the bigger turbine compared with the Army model.
