  1. I have already printed the system in 1/48 and 1/72 scale for the Apache. Then I will also do it for the Venezuelan Black Hawks Arpia 4 (which have the data link antenna on the left pylon with a specific adapter). The APKWS system is simply a laser kit which is applied on 2.75 "rockets, costs approximately $ 22,000 and has a range of approximately 8000m. The Spike system that is being tested on the US Apache is in the long range NLOS version. It has a port of approximately 25 km and costs over $ 300,000. This missile is used in a very specific way. It is generally launched from behind a hill or mountain, in order to make itself "invisible". the missile has a fiber optic cable which in this case only serves for the first few kilometers. Then the cable is cut and the missile is guided by the operator thanks to all the links to the antenna data installed on the right wing of the Apache. I am attaching a video that I find interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPK4dPX4lsQ&t=434s
  2. I designed this in 3D and I printed my UH-1Y and AH-1Z. Hope you like it. The antenna on the right in the 3d image is for Apache, Black Hawk etc. The one for UH-1Y and AH-1Z is shorter, as well as having support for the rotor hub.
  3. I installed the Spike system on the wing of the Apache HAS in 1/48. How do you like it? https://flic.kr/s/aHsmM6vQ6p
  4. This is the system used on the Israeli Apache Saraf and is the same system used as the US Army Apache test. This launcher can carry 4 spike missiles of three different types (Spike NLOS Non Line Of Sight, Spike-ER Extended Range and Spike-LR Long Range) I made the Spike NLOS launcher for the 1/48 and 1/72 Apache and ER plus the antenna (will be printed in 3d). At the moment I understand that the US Army is testing only the long-range NLOS Spike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPvchdf3s0w -Simon
  5. I confirm that I am planning to make it even on a 1/35 scale
  6. In this forum I will keep the discussion only on modeling.
