  1. Copy that! No top cover. No hanging ropes. Don't sorry! Thanks! Now i see wy some PIGs has short barrels. I have one short barreled m60 from Daragon's Vietnam Seals set, and thought is some kinda mistake, but now i see it's correct. Thanks again! I'm still in progress. Learming 3Ds Max software. Trying to create correct and (most important - printable in 1/35 scale) M60 3D model. More than 6 weeks passed, but i'm still in the same place. It's hard to create proper model, because i need to balance between realism and printability. If i make it like the real one - small relief details will not be visible. So i need to make more structural hypertrophy on this model. And in 3d view it will looks strange and ugly, but after 3d printing is should looks embosed and pretty, in theory :))) Theory is a key-word :))) If i got you corrent - i should NOT peel off front sight on my Miss Mini? Really inspirating pic! Thanks! But i planning to make left gunner with M60 mounted on Sagami. There is no other way to pose my gunner because i have already paint him. With pleasure my friend! But i stiil didn't make nothing interesting in my build. In real i did, but it some separate pieces and it will tell nothing. I'm stucked with my custom m60, this idea completely filled my mind so i can't do nothing and can't think abount other parts of my build. It is a "Dark side" of my nature - obsession. Here is my custom decal sheet. Also will be available use for everyone totally FREE. I'll share vector CDR file after it remake. Because there is a lot of mistakes (black outline around oval yellow Bandit's door signs). And thank you AGAIN for let me know aboaun that black outlines! The result of watched thousands of photos. Hope it worth that hundreds of hours i spent on this work. Maybe i'am wrong, but think here is full stencil data for that birdy. I looked at every inch in the photographs. But he could have missed something, of course. Click to enlarge Where is that phrase from? :))))
  2. Thanks my friend! I guess gunners use that crates without top wooden covers? Did they used the same crates for grenades and for m60 ammo belts?
  3. Copy that! Where is that picture from? US or some combat point? And about Huey restoration, it was my dream too. Ofcourse my dream less real than yours till i'm living in Russia? here is not too much Hueys 🙂 But maybe, some day, who knows... I dream at least to see Huey in reality. Till that i'll try to do my best with my 1/35 Huey restoration. I remember a day when i was 7 years old maybe, and i saw some assembled 1/72 Huey gunship kit at local model store. I was asking my parents to buy it, but they don't. And now 28 years have passed since then, and I did not give up trying to make such a Huey by myself, and make it 1000 times cooler than was in that store. I'm still remember that small Soviet store, with 5-10 models was in it, and that little green Huey... Broken childhood dreams become big, long adult projects. I am happy that my parents did not buy me that Huey. Otherwise, this project would never have happened :))) And i wish you from all my heart you make your dream reality. Marriage, kids, jobs, pets, friends is a good things, but we should make something special, something for our passion in our lives, until our lives are over.
  4. Hi Snake! Thanks again and again and again! Sorry for my late respod. Was stucked with my 3d printer. Chineses cheated me with resin, now open disput with them. And i still don't know your name!
  5. Thanks Oliver, Wish i own it... I have Werner's Wings DVD (bought it 7 years ago) and 3 more gigabytes of other photos and PDF's, but is still not anough for my greedy soul.
  6. I totally agree with you! Dragon is the best of these M60s. I have one from Vietnam Seals set, but it has too short barrel and there is only one m60 in that set. But I was looking towards Bravo6 M60. This one As for me it looks great. But i wrote Vladimir (Bravo6 manufacturer) and he said: "Not in stock, sorry!" Returning to the question "whether to buy Chinese copies or not" ... So my last hope now is 3d print it.
  7. Thanks for that photos! I have all of them exept the last one.
  8. Thanks again, Snake (wish I knew your name)! It's very handy! I have a couple of low resolution photos of Sagami, but yours one is my lifesaver. Almost all issues have been resolved. But i still have a couple. If you can post another pictures of that Sagami mount in different angles it will be great! And no need to isolate them, don't spent your time. How was that spare barrels under the seat looks like, like on this photo? And a personal question - Have you served at Vietnam War?
  9. And about brown shading. I guess it suitable only for light colors, like your grey. For my olive drab huey need black shading, how do you think?
  10. Looking great, Oliver! The most crucial moment has come. Do not rush!
  11. Thanks my friend! You always come to my aid like an angel from heaven! I really appreciate it and want to thank you. And all of you guys who helps me with this build and just follow it. It means more to me than you can imagine. Gino, now i look at this photo and understand that I have the wrong m134 feed trays for my Miss Mini. And it's a pretty shitty thing... Ammo feed trays glued, bench glued, door gunner glued... Damn... I should remake it all. And i can't find any closeup photos of that wooden ammo box to recreate it. I planning to scratch build it with wooden sheets but don'tknow neither dimensions no shape. Sometimes I think that the Vietnam War is less marked in history than the World War II, and it is not fair...
  12. Thanks Gino! I saw this kit. I want to do something non-standard, like an open shutter lid. And only 3D printing in this case will help me. If not, I will buy the sets, Dragon, Bravo6, Tank, E.T. Model, they all have m60 models.
  13. Hi Brandon, There is a lot of free model on the web. Just google it. I took several free 3d models of m60 as a basis. And then remade them in 3ds max. Added an open cover of the shutter frame and all the mechanisms inside, and some small details such as rivets and screws. Ammo belts, cartridges, and spent shells i modeled by myself. In real there is nothing hard in 3d modeling. It just seems like only the choosen ones can do it. But is not. I want to share with you one very good guy's youtube channel where he teaches 3d modeling in 3ds max. As for me, this is the best and understandable videos i've seen. He easily creates stunning sophisticated models in 20 minutes. And when you see this, you realize that you can do the same thing. He is english speeking, and even me russian guy understand everything he says and do. There is hundreds of videos on his channel. Please don't think i want to advertise his channel. And forgive me Oliver for a lot of my spamming posts, but i just want to share with all of you some intresting and useful information that can be useful in our hobby. His channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSLLdTBwLMfTKWS56tOiQpw And playlist for beginners https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxt9ZAGPLIpeB8TcHrpzxvEI4Ve3SfZBC
  14. Thanks my friend! I will. But I guess I can't do without the help of Snake36bravo. I want to put historical realism in my birdy, but there is no any info about it on the web. But i don't want to ask him for every question.
  15. Now I get what is c-rat 😉 I saw it on some pictures. But not sure, was that c-rat on my Miss Mini or not.
