US Army AH-64D Apache Longbow
My US Army AH-64D Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter/Gunship
About this creation






Yeah! I finished it! This is still my AH-64D Apache gunship. Not much has changed since the WIP version was posted, but the landing gear, tailrotor, and sensor package under the nose are all new, and I weeded out some of the red. AIIIIIIGHH! Too much red! I'm pretty happy with it overall. The pictures above have longer rotors, and show the chopper providing Close Air Support for the AHMCAV. Below are some more in-depth pictures of the chopper, with worse rotors. That's pretty much it as far as a description...enjoy!


Side view.



Same as before, but without flash.






Front view. I spent the better part of a year and a half brainstorming before I came up with this, only to find Bryce Rollins uses nearly the same technique. Sad, isn't it?

Same with no flash.







Shoulder view. This is armed with inboard AGM-144 HELLFIRE missiles, outboard HYDRA 70mm rocket pods, and AIM-9 Sidewinders. The Apache can carry Sidewinders, though Jack claims they aren't on wingtip rails, but are on the hardpoints where the HYDRAs are. Feel free to chew me out on this!





Top view...

...and bottom view. Thanks for coming, please review!

Thats a very good Apache. The canopy looks very good even though there is no glass. The shape is very good. I could never build something that big and have it still look good, shame.

Though you still do not have a cockpit window, your other changes completely divert attention away from that. PS. Thanks for the review on my Firebird. If you like large fighters, check out my Lantean Shuttle.

Hi Michael...this looks good, actually I like the red in the color scheme. The only thing is I think you should gets some flexible plastic for the canopy and maybe try too smooth the engines out, other then that this is a great moc-----David

Hey Michael, you kept the shape of the Apache very, very well!!! Thatīs actually really crazy!! But could you create a glass cockpit out of parts such as the ones of the Octan Buggy racer thingies? I always liked those to build helicopter canopies... Would you maybe like to check out my cargo plane? Itīs ficticious, but my orientation was a Russian Antonow of which you can see some points of reference... Keep up the good work & happy building! Steffen

This is Awseome! though i think you should remove the red and blue, then it would be perfect. Thanks, if you have time could you check out my stuff?
