The Italeri 1/48 AH-64D Longbow Apache is deferentially not the greatest or most accurate kit on the market but it has a lot of parts and it will make a great 'out the box' build. If you like to super detail it, no problem. There's a lot of aftermarked parts and detail sets in stores, including some photo-etch parts from Eduard Model Accessories ltd and a brand new resin cockpit from Aires Hobby Models. You can easily spend more money on detail sets and upgrade parts, than the model it self costs. The Italeri Longbow is an rather old kit and it really need a new tooling but it is a very inexpensive kit and it will give you great value for the money.
I can only highly recommend this kit to everybody. Both to the newbie, like me that just want a kit with a lot of parts. This is also for the experienced modeler whom wants to super detail the Apache and spend month building the helicopter.
This will hopefully be a quick build as I'm really looking forward to airbrushing and weather this model.
