Congratulations on MOTD! I made my own based on just the pictures of this back in 2011. As a former Apache mechanic I did add my own touches to make it just a tad more accurate, but this is still wonderful and I will upload my soon.
I really like your Apache! One of the coolest military MOCs I have seen in a long time. I want to make one for my brother's birthday by building it on Lego Digital Designer, then order parts off of Bricklink . I tried to build one on my own, but I didn't do so great.
I would like to know if you could email me some pictures of the separate sections, or, if you can, instructions. It would be greatly appreciated!
Great Job! Brilliant canopy idea. The tail rotor's good too. My one complaint is the bow. It's not bad, but it could use some work. But you did good, a true 5/5.:-) Keep working!-- -- --Michael -- P.S. Phillip, there is too a 30mm machine gun under the gunner. Look on Wikipedia if you don't believe me.(His is a little hard to see though.) And Who, (from Where) like my brother said, it is NOT the Longbow, but the Boeing AH-64D Apache Longbow. Longbow refers to the radar on the rotor mast.
This is probably the best Apache that has a cockpit with clear plastic in it.Caimslaw Caimek got the shape perfectly,but no glass,(actualy, no Lego Apaches have glass,only plastic,but so what.)I built a fairly good one,but it dosen't have cockpit glass either.,so it depends if you'd prefer glass or good shape.
Oh by the way Who,from where,they are AH-64D Apache Longbows. the "D" means it's the fourth version. The "longbow,"refers to the radar on the top of the rotor.All AH-64D's are Apache Longbows.
The "Stern rotor" is calles a Tail Rotor, and i have seen another Apache on MOCpages that has a more detailed cockpit. But, this is a very nice MOC, worthy of MOC of the day. Congrats! oh, Chris C, The Air Force Don't Need No Choppers.
Niko, this Apache is very impressive. I like the use of the technic pieces for the tail rotors, that was an ingenious idea. I also like the smoothness of the entire model. My only beef with it is that front part of the cockpit, preferably under the window, is a tad bit too parallel to the ground, and should be slanted upward, and that there isnt a a machine gun under the cockpit. Other than those slight knix, this is a great model, probably one of the best. You should check out my black hawk sometime.
