AH-64A "Devils Dance"

Recommended Posts

Finished this build up yesterday at a little past 4 in the afternoon. This has taken a little over three years to build. It is comprised of parts from four 1/72 kits (2 Academy, 1 Hasegawa, and 1 HobbyBoss), after market sets from CMK & Eduards, and a total of 1200+ scratch built pieces. None of this would have been possible without the outstanding custom decals from Joseph Osborn, invaluable technical advice and reference material from Jon Bernstein (Cobrahistorian), Tony Morgan (RotorheadTX), and the US Army. So I'll shut up now and post the photos. Please let me know if you all have any suggestions or corrections.

Wow Dave!

Amazing Apache, I loved the great detail you put in the engines and the avionics bays and whew! I guess everywhere! And in my favorite scale.

Beautiful model!

I've never seen such a clean work at this scale!

I would have never tell that it is 1/72 if i have not read it...

It is great !

Wow!...that is outstanding Dave!

I thought it was 48 scale, until I re-read it again, what a superb piece of work.

Awesome stuff!

Cheer's,

Jeff.

Hi Dave, just spotted your reply. I'll try to get the pics scanned and sent in the next few days. This should make for an unusual build! :woot.gif:
