Review:

In 2001 Hasegawa released this new tooling to build the AH-64D Longbow Apache in scale 1/48.

This is a very nice kit that can be built straight from the box and still be an "eye-catcher".

The detail in the cockpit and the surfaces of the fuselage are state of the art with very nice rivets as well as crisp recessed panel lines.

Armament for the weapons pylons consist of two 19-shot rocket pods and eight Hellfire missiles for which the noses are cast in clear plastic. The nose chaingun consists of miltiple parts and is nicely done.

The decalsheet contains markings and stencils for both the airframe as well as the weapons. The instruction sheet provides only one option, an Apache from an unknown unit with s/n 96-5006. No unit logos or special nose art on this one. Hasegawa however provided some extra serial numbers.

Except for the decal options that are a little disappointing it is well worth the money.

I however suggest to find one of the later reboxings by Hasegawa to have more interesting options.
