  1. Couldn't agree more Oliver. Thanks for the reminder. Todd
  2. So, looks like maybe the Bravo or Foxtrot versions could be used for a USCG Jayhawk?
  3. I'm a big fan of magnets set into the wheels and on the base. Allows you to remove the aircraft for cleaning, moving or transporting.
  4. I spent all the time redoing the rotor head, so couldn't ignore the poor quality of the kits rotor head cover, so vacuum formed a new one and scratch built the OADS probe, which is not included in the kit. (note, the probe is not glued yet which is why it's not straight). Todd
  5. I think you hands must be humongous! Very nice work.
  6. Finding space to display this beast at this scale won't be an issue. Are you going to keep the rotors folded?
  7. The USCG MH-60J has those open exhausts also...just saying...Kitty Hawk.
  8. Welcome to ARC. Great first post! I'm a Flight Nurse/Paramedic and also enjoy modeling helicopters in colors other than olive drab. Don't take the lack of civilian helicopters personally. The manufacturers need to make money on their products and the civilian aircraft just don't make the cut most of the time.

As for decals, that is a tough one. John (forum name Air Medical) is also a EMS helicopter fan and I thi
  9. Quick update on the rotor head. Very pleased with how it turned out.
  10. Simply amazing. The quality of the build is just as impressive as the finishing. That paint job is very nice!
  11. Like many I suspect the COVID pandemic has given me a little time on the workbench. The interior is done with the exception of the the door mounted gun and .50 cal that can both be put in place at the end of the build. So, I turned my attention to the main rotor, which needs a lot a work. I feel the main rotor is a focal point of helicopter models since it's the first thing you see when you look down on it. Out of the box with work it might be okay, but I just couldn't live with it. Here is the real thing. Here is what the out of the box gives you.
  12. Outstanding in any scale, but 1/72...just wow! Thanks for sharing.
