Are the kits an -A and -D, or a -D and -E?  The Modeling News says the latter.

Also, the two silhouettes appear almost identical, other than the FCS radome, so D/E makes more sense because the FABs seem the same size.

It's about time.  It's amazing that we've gone this long without a good 1/35 Apache.  After decades of service, there's just been the ancient Revell 1/32 kit, and the inaccurate 1/35 Academy kit.  Can't wait to see what Takom can do.

Isn't the Kangnam kit just a copy of the Revell kit? I've built the latter ages ago and the parts division seems VERY similar. 

 

In any case I'm looking forward to the new Takom kits, they've done some of my favourite armour kits so I have high hopes.

Don’t think so.  For one thing it’s 1/35 scale, and from my memory the Kangnam kit (I had the IMEX boxing) was a little less detailed than the Revell kit.  Also, IIRC there was an issue with the height of the gear (the front stood way too high).  I had both kits, and even though I had the Eduard set for the IMEX kit to dress it up, I still thought the old Revell kit was better.
