    Looks nice Perer ( are you posing as RAF or USAF ( I think we used them in desert storm ?? )
    With all your other builds this will surely turn out a treat

    Regards

    the Army Air Corp use a license built but improved version of the 'D' model......got the long bow radar and Rolls Royce engines.

    just finished Ed Maceys second book, seems our Apaches are better than the yanks version......good read if you can get either of the books by the way

    That's a well detailed cockpit for a 1/72 scale. Nice job.
