Hello everyone, this is my 1/48th scale Hasegawa AH-64E Apache Guardian. The E model is the latest variant of the most deadliest combat helicopter, the Apache. I built the model OOB, as it already came with some small PE fret and decals. Everything went straightforward and I really enjoyed building it.

The model was painted with Testors Model Master acrylic paints.

The main exterior color is U.S. Army Helo Drab (CARC Aircraft Green FS34031), For the interior the main color is Aircraft Interior Black(FS37031). Weathering and paint fading was done mixing the main color with shades of gray, OD and greens. Sand effect was made using Tamiya Weathering Set A and sand wash using AK Interactive Yellow Sand Deposit to create the sand residues visible in aircraft operating in Afghanistan.

Thank you very much!
