The AH-64 attack helicopter might be thought of as brutishly attractive
by some, but it does not sport a big variety of colours and markings.
Dutch Decals' latest releases addresses this shortcoming with three
sets of decals for the Apache in Royal Netherlands Air Force service. The
decal sets provide the same markings in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scales. The
timing is especially good in 1/48 scale with the recent release of
Hasegawa's excellent AH-64D Apache Longbow.
Markings are supplied for 31 machines - one AH-64A leased from the US
Army prior to the introduction of the Apache Longbow to Dutch service, and
30 serials to depict any of the RNethAF AH-64Ds. With creative use of kit
stencil decals it should be possible to build two Dutch machines from this
The Dutch text and low-viz markings will make a noticeable variation
from the standard US Army finish. The Dutch low viz roundels are presented
in four shades of green instead of the regular red, white and blue. Three
alternatives are supplied for these small roundels - one-piece (which are
very slightly out of register on my 1/48 scale sheet), two-piece with a
separate black border and five pieces with each section of the roundel
supplied as a separate decal.
Stencils and slime lights are also provided, although placement of the
upper-surface slime lights is not called out on the instruction sheet.
The 1/72 scale set includes bonus markings for the SP-13A to supplement
Dutch Decals' sheet number 72025.
This new release is a good way to add some variety to your AH-64.
