    Hello, I’ve been waiting so long for a 1/35 Apache Longbow, and now there are two. I have been looking at the pictures of what is to come and both Meng and Takom have good-looking kits of the aircraft. So which one to choose? Well, I was an Apache crew chief for many years and I would choose the Takom kit. Meng has made some big errors with their entry. First is the catwalk doors. There are five total, the entry panel that folds over on its back. Next are four separate doors leading up the catwalk that are divided in the center and are piano-hinged near the engine nacelles leading up to the work platform just in front of the ALQ144 which isn’t even needed on Longbow. Next is each nose gearbox cowling is three separate parts. and lastly, the crew handles are screwed directly to the canopy frame, not on tubes. Spoiler alert !!

      As a modeler, thank you for this valuable and detailed information. These are precisely the details I was looking for. We are compelled to identify what the companies that produce these kits offer. At the end of the job, there is an incredible difference between the kit we buy and the finished kit. Added, and removed, resin parts, photo-etched. There is no end. In my opinion, the ideas of the modelers should be consulted more in such projects. A modeler like you who has touched Apache Longbow has a lot to say, these should be taken into account.

    The Takom Longbow is pretty accurately represented. Things that are missing. The aft avionics bay fans should have blockers in front of them. Next. The forward E fabs with all the avionics boxes don’t have any cable bundles running through the LRU’s. Last, there are no cables connecting the engines to the three cannon plug on the firewalls.
    Issues that can be fixed by an experienced modeler.
    I will absolutely purchase one, and model it after my aircraft. And contract to build many more for pilots and members of my former unit 1/285th ARB Desert Hawks
