Given the badly written instructions in some places (e.g. one of the clear parts can not be installed in step 1 otherwise you will have a problem in step 5) and some of the pieces have a terrible fit with canopy fit being less than desirable (seems to be shorter than it should be), I will be holding back purchase of this kit until I try the Meng model version (I can wait for that one as I still have other model kits to complete).
Ah man... I don't mind the instructions being bad. More than used to it. But disappointed to hear the fit isn't good. Have you seen this on a video or review somewhere I can take a look myself?
I was under the impression that Meng's was the same kit essentially? Using the same designs? The CADs are all but identical.
I am building the AH-64E version (kit no 2602) also from Takom which I suppose the instructions are more of less identical with the obvious difference being the steps required to build the engine exhaust. The clear part I am referring to is Q20 which if one does not look further into the instructions will find that that part is required to attach it to part Q29 and in turn the cable needs to run through the locating holes on part Q20.
For the canopy, the fit on part Q7 to Q29 to is not a problem but if one tries to fit parts Q21 and Q8 to part Q29 to simulate a closed canopy will find that both parts do not exactly fit and that part Q8 is slightly shorter as it leaves a bit of gap at the bottom.
The locating pin to fit part D14 is too big and part F1 seems a little too long if one wants the M230 chain cannon to be level.
Well I just received my Takom kit. I won't be building it for a while so can't comment on fit, but the kit looks beautiful.
However, the instructions... I really wouldn't want to be a newcomer to the hobby and trying this. Never mind the colour call outs everyone is focusing on - the layout is absolutely atrocious and over-complicated. I can barely make head nor tail of what is going on. The section of building the rotor head and attaching the blades? Mind-boggling. No idea which part is talking about the folding, or which about the non-folding. Same issue with canopy and avionics open/closed options - why not put a big '?' with the word 'OPTIONAL'? The diagrams also aren't great - there's so little visual depth to them, it's hard to tell what you're looking at sometimes. I wish more manufacturers would follow Airfix in doing 3D colourised images.
That's my only warning to any newcomers or people with bad eyesight, frankly.
To be fair, the MQ-8B Fire Scout from Takom is more understandable even if two of the very tiny PE parts do mandate the use of a magnifying glass to put them if you want to save your eyesight.
Does it come with the terrorist and his lover or are those purchased separately?
I don’t think I could handle this! 😂
Oh finally!! There's such a gap in the market for this. I kind of expected one of the companies to do something when the DCS sim Apache was released - lots of modellers on there too.
Feel like I've been asking for this my whole life and now it's finally here!

An AH-64D in 1/35 scale? This is going to be more interesting than interesting.
