After perusing the available manual this Apache looks to be a lot better than the Takom one. I tried to build one but that canopy is a total mess to get it in place. I cracked the canopy because of fitting issues (and impatience with the kit) and it's the only kit I have trashed so far. Meng seems to have a much better idea about how to fix a canopy to the airframe. Here's hoping it'll arrive this month!

Any reason for picking 1:35? A diorama with vehicles?

Johan Molendijk
Never made any dioramas. 1:35 seemed like a proper size for helicopters since they will be sharing shelf space with 1:35 tanks. I really like the fact the blades of the Meng (and Takom, granted) can be folded back to save display space.

I humbly pray to the modelling gods that Meng has better instructions than Takom gave us

The Apache Longbow Sprue Pictures Unveiled

We are doing our best to perfect this Apache Longbow Heavy Attack Helicopter model kit, and we will try to present it to you as early as possible. Let's expect more updates of this kit.

meng is awfully quiet about this. Takom have released cads, test build
28 December 2022, 13:33

Lots of CAD, in fact - themodellingnews.com..in-sneak-attack.html

The two kits look essentially identical. Release date for Takom is Jan/Feb - Meng probably the same.

those cads are on their facebook page as well, but they have not updated with regards to this kit

If they are smart and want my money, it should be before Xmas 🙂

The kit is listed a shop in Taiwan for $9999, which is around 310€:

Sounds like a placeholder price?

You'd imagine it would be similar to the Takom kit, if not the same. Seems to be loitering around £80 to £90. Crazy prices these days.

Honestly just feels like a golden age in modeling. Everything is starting to get the love they deserve. Took a couple decades though…

What is going on..? You wait so many years for a new tool AH-64 in a decent scale, then suddenly they're popping up left, right and centre.

I may need one of each.

Takom's kit is from Snowman, who supposedly stole the half completed designs from Meng.

Do you have a source for that?

Whoah!!! The CAD renderings show the Dutch specific AMASE pods on the wingtips! Nice!

According to the renders given by Meng which can be found at Aeroscale, the positions of the Hellfire missiles and M261 rocket pods are reversed.

It is 'technically' possible, but not operationally normal. I assume the loadouts will be interchangeable by pylons. You can put 16 Hellfires, if you really wanted to.
