25 lb. Functional Sprayer
Sep 06, 2013
What it lacks in capacity it makes up for in details and passion. It took four years and 400 hours for Nathan Rowings to make a 1:10 scale model of his real-life Apache AS710. Rowings showed off this model at the National Toy Truck ‘N Construction Show in Indianapolis.
He says he used the skills he learned making models for 4-H projects growing up. At first glance you’re impressed that the models completely mimics its inspiration—down to the decals. But then on a closer look, you can see that not only do the lights work, but the boom sprayers water with functional nozzles that provide a fan spray pattern. The 1:10 scale model Apache can be operated using a remote control.
The full story is available on the Apache blog. And here’s a sneak peek at when Rowings was still working on the scale model.
