recommendation for ah-64 apache longbow anyone ?

am looking for a good ah-64 apache longbow model, in the 1:24 or 1:32
if anybody can recommend some models, along withwebsites where i can get
more info on em, i'd be grateful.
also, how much would it cost to get set up with the necessary equipment
to do airbrushing and detail painting. i'm not looking for real fancy
stuff, but, dont want to end up paying about $50-200 for something i use
like 2 or 3 times a year.

Some Hobby Lobbys have a 1:35 Longbow for 1/2 off with internet coupon this week.

Well, the only truly accurate AH-64D Longbow is the 1/48 scale Hasegawa kit. For large scale kits, your only Apache choices are the 1/32 Revell kit or the 1/35 IMEX/ARII/Academy kits (all same kit - different box).
The Revell kit is an early AH-64A.
IMEX/ARII/Academy make both 1/35 scale AH-64A and AH-64D Longbow kits, however their "Longbow" kit is inaccurate in many areas. The kit has the "A" cockpit, lacks the air data booms on the engines, lacks the laser warning sensors and various other antennas and sensors, and has the prototype-style enlarged avionics bays, which have a different rear end from the ones fitted to production machines. In short, their "D" kit is only an "A" with a radome on top of the rotor and (incorrect) enlarged avionics bays. Eduard makes a PE interior set, which corrects the cockpit to "D" standards, but you are still on your own fixing all the external errors.
