Apache longbow

Postby comic123 » Thu Apr 07, 2016 10:15 am

Has anyone seen any info for new Deagostini partworks for Apache longbow :P advert on their youtube channel but nothing on net. Is it a test?? :think:
1/24 scale and now the norm of £8.99 per issue and 100 to complete.

This would certainly tick of one of my wishlist items!

But damn. Delorean, R2D2, Mustang, Tomcat, Eiffel Tower...and now an Apache! How do I decide!

On Modelspace it is saying it is indeed a test run.

I've had the 4 test issues and put them together tonight. It is a really nice looking kit and highly detailed. This will definitely be on my list! Heres some goodies to drool over...

This is the only disapointing bit as it lackes finesse and quality:

Thank you very much for that Chadders, much better photos than I managed to take.

I was excited to get these 4 issues but I sadly have to admit that I was really disappointed in the quality of some parts of the build. Like you, the one piece Gun was less than I would expect at this price. Mine was bent.

If it’s released I would like the gun to have a straight barrel, perhaps with several parts with a hole at the sharp end instead of a blob.

Also, the windows had clip tabs that you can still see once the panes are in place. Perhaps a revamp with a better fit would help. It looks worse that a £20 diecast of the shelf.

As a child of AAC, sharing a life with choppers, I feel sad to say that to me this isn’t worth the vast sum for the kit
.
Oh well

Alan

Yet another one to be available for UK in 2018 according to the Modelspace forum. They're going to be busy !
