Motorized Apache Helicopter

Sunday night I ended up in hospital with sever food poisoning. After being off work for 5 days straight now I can say it was almost worth it. Embarassed Razz

Bloody fantastic build once again, Rook! Very faithful to the source material, although the front could be a little more sloped. I love how it's motorized, and the vid in your flickr gallery is awesome. Once again, you made a model that is as playable as it is artistic, which is a rarity among the Lego community. Thumbs up
9.5/10

Well now I gotta think how to beat this... Thinking.... Thinking... Ah shoot this is SWEET! Motorized makes it just wow! May I suggest changing the printed windscreens for plain ones? The white kinda off-balances the camo.

Wow, that is <i>really</i> nice. I'm finding that front bit a little too square though, and the nose of the Apache is meant to be slimmer, I believe.

Yeah I had to go slightly wider than desired to make it motorized.

I love the Apache anyway, and having it motorized just makes it that much better. All of your entries almost make me glad that I cannot enter. You have nailed the details perfectly.

You hardly ever see Rook build outside of the SW Universe, but when he does you know it will be fantastic!

Why can't you enter? Everyone should enter in their category.

Sever food poisoning? Where'd you eat Shocked ? The fact that it's motorized makes it that much better. <3!

I do not have any collectible minifigs for the phase II, having never had any interest in the figs unless they were piloting one of my vehicles.

Some one on EB asked for a video of this and of course to can't embed Flickr videos so here it is on YouTube.
