    Ah-1z cockpit

    The Mission Grip has all the functionality found on the Cyclic and Collective stick, allowing the pilot or gunner to use the full functionality of the TSS and weapons without having their hands on the controls. Both seats have it but in practice it would generally only be used by the front seat (gunner). (So yes it does do something)

    Operation Gothic Serpent Aircraft references

    What's up with that toolbox?

    F-35 news roundup

    And again, the charts lack a large amount of context. There is a massive disparity between MC (which includes PMC) and FMC. Finding a squadron with more than a 50% FMC rate is INSANE

    Academy 1/35th AH-1Z is absolutely amazing.....

    Really wish there weren't so many other issues with the Academy NTS boxing.

    Academy 1/35th AH-1Z is absolutely amazing.....

    Talking about the commonality between Yankee and Zulu, I can confirm that the "85% commonality" is almost entirely contained in the drive systems (gearboxes, etc), engines, tailboom, and rotor systems.

    Academy 1/35th AH-1Z is absolutely amazing.....

    A little annoyed that the warning decals disappear on the light ghost gray. Also that he's using dark ghost gray for the upper surfaces instead of 35237

    Does Tamiya X-22 gloss go bad?

    I've also got one with a bit of a yellow tinge.

    AH-6C, MH-6 photos from AH6C-SIP-PICS ARE BACK!

    Lot of SOF guys have gone away from the quad-tubes in favor of PVS-31s due to weight and size concerns, as well as some of the issues mentioned above in this thread. As for who it was in the pic I've heard it was one of the SFGs, not SEALs.

    USSOCOM orders new MH-47G's

    New rotors among other things, if I remember correctly.

    Dreaming for.....1/72 resin wants!

    Reissue of the Olimp AH-1W NTS set. AH-1Z and UH-1Y would be good too.

    Italeri MC-130E

    Considering it looks to be a rebox of the standard Italeri C-130 kit you'll run into the same pitfalls as that does, i.e. improperly sized engine nacelles, if my memory serves me correctly. Other than that, I say go for it.

    New tooled 1/35th scale AH-1Z

    This will definitely be one I follow if Oliver's gonna work his magic on it.

    New tooled 1/35th scale AH-1Z

    I work on Zulus, but getting walkarounds of the helmet may be a bit difficult. Details look... Odd, some panel lines seem a lot heavier than they need to be, but I'll still probably pick one of these up. I'm hyped up by the schemes they included.

    V-22 Osprey decal/details research

    One thing that would be interesting is that new SATCOM antenna that CV and some MV-22s have been getting, apparently. Source: https://theaviationist.com/2018/09/20/new-bulge-on-top-of-u-s-marine-corps-and-afsocs-v-22-osprey-tilt-rotor-aircraft-is-a-radome-that-houses-a-satcom-antenna/
