  1. MMZone from Korea, moxingfan & Model Bar from China report about a not yet officially announced 1/35th Boeing AH-64A Apache by Academy - ref.12129 Some reliable sources say it'll be just a rebox from the old Hapdong Tech/Kangnam/IMEX kit (link). Sources: http://mmzone.co.kr/mms_tool/mt_view.php?mms_db_name=mmz_forum&no=370385 http://www.moxingfans.com/new/news/2020/0327/7533.html https://tieba.baidu.com/p/6579272654 https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/stkofi5ecsdmhaahtm1i.html https://www.hlj.com/1-35-scale-ah-64a-apache-south-carolina-ang-acd12129
  2. Having an interest in the AAC, I have started my first ever build (as a more dedicated hobbyist) on the attack helicopter that is currently being replaced by the Echo model.
  3. So I toyed with this GB as I have 3 helos in the stash, including an earlier version of this (only thing different is decals so not sure how/why I have both!) and the Airfix Merlin......I have a lot ready for the Battle of Britain GB and can just see myself over extending - I have only just come back to the hobby, built in the Nordic GB, also managed to finish off my 2 x F-111 builds from the STGB (have updated the threads!), pushed along a couple of stalled 617 Sqn Lanc builds etc... Then I thought - when would I ever build these things - if not in a Helo GB....so why not! Living
  4. Greetings everyone! This is my first post here and I must say that it is an honor to be able to participate and share experiences with the members of this forum! Amount of kits since my 13 years old and today I am 53 ... I am already calloused due to errors and correctness and I will show you the assembly of a scale kit 1/48 AH-64 Apache. The kit was chosen by the Academy because it is reasonably detailed and cheap (of course the Hasegawa kit would be better, but since I will cut the whole kit to try to improve it, you will understand why I did not choose Hasegawa). The man

  8. Hi all and welcome to 2018. Below, and dare I present, the last model I finished in 2017. Here we have Italerie's 1/72 Apache Longbow that was handed to me by a family member a few months go and will be built OOB. The kit was more a flat-pack than a kit; some parts painted with some parts missing. The build went well with the missing parts being fabricated and it was during the build that, AFAIK, this kit was of the prototype...and stayed at what ever variant it is. After a bit of filling and sanding, the primer went on and still everything looked. The helo was painted with Tamiya Olive D
  9. As Prince Harry goes public with the next chapter of his life, what better day to begin a build reflecting his service career. This build is the AH-1 Longbow Apache from Academy, which looks both good fun and comprehensive. and yes, @Procopius and @CedB, it's a flying thing, albeit not much in the way of wings, and yes, it marks a return to the gentleman's scale after recent larger excursions. The model also has another significance, as it was the first online order fulfilled by @Duncan B's BlackMike models. No connection other than as one very satisfied customer.

  12. Hughes AH-64D Apache Block II 1:72 Academy The AH-64 Apache was developed from the US Army's Advanced Attack Helicopter programme in the early 1970s. This stemmed from The US Army need to fill its anti armour role, following the cancellation of the AH-65 Cheyenne programme. This was designed to find the replacement for the AH-1 Cobra. Hughes Helicopters developed their Model 77 which became the YAH-64. The YAH-64 first flew in 1977. It features a nose mounted sensor suite containing targeting sensors and night vision equipment. A 30mm chain gun was carried under the forward fuselage a
  13. Hello everyone, I'm still learning how to improve my skills so this is just a regular model I managed to put together in a few days while applying some techniques and avoiding others (such as brush painting a matte coat at the end). This was my fifth Hasegawa and the first one to come with some details as you can see on the photo below, for example the canopy fit. However, Hasegawa is still much better than Italeri. And also, I will have to fit in the canopy before painting from now on to make any corrections necessary. I am also disappointed that the rocket launchers c
  14. Hey! Didn't really know where to post this topic :/ I'm currently making an AH-64D Apache Longbow (Revell's kit) in 1:48 scale. I'm gonna be bored over the summer, so I was probably gonna have a crack at making an Middle Eastern diorama focused around the Apache. It will be just before a mission, so there will be people loading ordnance, maybe a quick bit of maintenance and nothing much else really. I was looking at Hussein El Kaissy's 1/32 one on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJjPWS18rTQ . It looks really nice. So, my question is; Where can I get these diorama accessories in 1/48? -
  15. All pics in the thread from Gary Stedman unless noted otherwise. Ferry tanks fitted to one of the first AH's delivered to Wattisham, summer 2005. ferry tanks never actually used by the AAC, only flown by Westlands during trials. ZJ173 on display at Colchester military festival in June, 2007. Aircraft is in UK training fit only - no Helicopter Intergrated Defensive Avonics System (HIDAS) fitted. ZJ209 in Wattisham hangar, May 2008 showing panels removed for 300 hour checks. Quad Hellfire rails and UK spec CRV-7 19 tube rocket pod on ZJ166 at Wattisham, May 200
  16. AH-64D Block II - For Academy Kit 1:72 Eduard This set is one colour fret and one brass fret for the new Academy Kit. The colour set contains full seat belts for cockpits. In addition there are parts for both instrument panels, the rear cockpit bulkhead, the seat sides, the instrument coamings, side consoles, tail rotor pedals, the interior cockpit sides, fuel fillers, windscreen wipers, and cable cutters. The brass fret contains mostly parts for the exhausts, as well as rotor head, various mesh intakes, rocket pod ends, missile rail ends; and rear parts for the missiles. Recom
  17. Hi, does anybody know of any kits that contain a U.S. 230 gal drop tank. Modern era (afghan). Scale is 1/72. It is for an apache build I'm compiling. So far I have the tamiya rebox (Italeri) Apache, airwaves etch, attack squadron resin hellfire missiles. The source book is Osprey combat aircraft 57, AH-64 Apache units of ops enduring freedom and Iraqi freedom. Cheers! P.s. Is there an alternate source for the M261 rocket launchers? (Just out of interest)
  18. Just purchased this from local model shop, will it make a good representation of Apache operated by AAC, or will I need to add/delete any fixture fittings. Derek
  19. Hello all, I've decided to build somewhat of a tribute to recognise the drawdown of 13 years of Op Herrick by building some of the equipment that was used in the conflict. Multiple builds in multiple scales, not all will be aircraft though! This is what I've decided on so far: 1/144 C-17 1/72 C-130J 1/48 WAH-64D 1/48 Harrier GR-9 1/35 Jackal 2 I'll add all the builds to this thread instead of starting several. First up will be the C-17. Comments and suggestions welcome. Dave
  20. I've gotten hold of the 1/48 Hasegawa AH-64D Longbow. I bought it after studying the sprulayout and found it to be identical with Hasegawa's WAH-64D kit. I have the Aviation Worshop decals where there are decals for the british WAH-64D. What more do I need - surely it can't be this easy, can it? Cheers Hans J

  22. Time has been tight recently between moving house, new job, new baby and a multitude of 'important' things to be done. I thought a 1/144 build would be the ideal thing as a low part count and small surface area might allow some visible progress in the moments I have. I bought the kit for no reason a few months ago, I think I just fancied a helicopter in the stash incase the urge took me! 3 sprues and decals. Plan is to have it in flight on a thin piece of clear acrylic rod and a small base, possibly with a tiny SCUD launcher as the box art if I can find a Micro-Machines one for a reasonabl
  23. Evening, folks! Just thought I'd share my latest build with you all. Here is my depiction of AW Apache AH Mk.1 ZJ224, 656 Sqn, 4 Regt. AAC. She is depicted as she was on 15. Jan 2007 during what is perhaps her most famous escapade, during her involvement on Op. Glacier II, near Garmsir, Helmand Province. I'm sure most of us here are well aware of the now-famous Jugroom Fort rescue, so I'll spare the details The base kit is Hasegawa's fantastic 1/48 AH-64D. This was my first, but I can guarantee it won't be my last! The conversion to AH.1 spec was done by scrounging the HIDAS fit from

  25. Hi, It has been a while since I've posted. I've now finished my AAC WAH-64 Longbow Apache AH Mk.1. It has been a slow build, but I managed to finish it. It's from Operation Herrick ca. 2006. I've scratched som UK specifik antennae, and a scoop?? on the right side of the nose. I've also remade the grips and the guards in front of the landing gear. I did some wire superdetailling on the Longbow unit and on the gun. For the HIDAS gear, rockets and the decals, I've used Isracasts conversion set. Cockpit is Aires resin cast. I managed to find a '4' in my spare decal box, and the serial is ZJ2
