    Hi,

    Impressed by the 1:33 scaled Maly Modelarz model (7-8 /2003) of the AH-64 Apache, I was searching for a good and free paper model.

    I spend alot of time for the search but I found nothing.

    Finaly I decided to make a compromise. I took the model from this site

    http://www.papermodel.jp/english/free_ah64d.html

    and gave it more details by myself.

    Not all of the parts I'd add to the model has the correct scale I guess, but I think it looks not too bad.

    It looks very cool, chakotay. I'd like to build one of those... Well, which one wouldn't I like to build? So many models, so little time...

    Thank you very much :)

    I would like to build the AH-64 again but this time the one from Maly Modelarz, but it's not a free model. I found one which is similar to this one but costs 16 USD + shipping + duty. :eek:

    If you need a cheaper way to go but still a nice AH-64 model, check out Marek's......................... no commercial links!!

    Use the P.M.'s for this kind of info, please.

    @ Rhaven Blaack : Thank you very much :)

    @ Sidewinder : Thanks alot for the link, but I think, I will try to get the one from Maly Modelarz - I really like this one - maybe someone is selling his unused sample somewhere - I will keep my eyes open for it ;-)

    Nice job. I am impressed by how clean and symmetrical the lines are. I bet you could modify this yourself and take it up a notch. :)

    It is really well built...did you have to tweak the original model much or was it just a good design?

    Nice job , I also plan to build this model one day but in 1:100.
    I fyou search in some european papermodel stores (spanish or french) you will find Maly's model for 6,90 euros repectively 8,50 euros. Maybe you spend some money but I think it's worth it because is very detailed model.
