  1. I have the following books, sitting in a cabinet. If you are interested in any of them please make a reasonable offer.. most books are in great shape, a few of them have wear a tear from multiple readings, use. I may be up for trade or trades, interest is primarily 1/48 helicopters and accessories. I am also interested in 1/72 CH-47, Blackhawks, or CH-53E for upcoming project!! Thank for looking. I hope someone can use some of these books!! Thanks for looking!! Bob
  2. I was asked to share this photo in this thread! MH-6M from Alpha Company, TF1-160th SOAR(A) training @ HAATS in Colorado..
  3. Here is a no ski, Blackhawk landing in the snow! 😁
  4. Are you still looking for the following? If you let me know exactly which pieces I may be able to help..I'm working on a MH-6 & 530, may have the parts you are looking for left over!! LTTF Clear parts from Academy 1/48 500 MD. Looking for the non tinted clear parts, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8 & C9 Bob
  5. Another training day at HAATS! In Colorado!!
  6. I'm sure there is a much better way, although I drilled laterally through thin walled brass tubing. Cut 2 pieces of tubing to width. Incerted styrene rod through drilled hole on one piece cut the other in half, through the previous drilled hole, providing a pin on either side for positioning. It was a pain in the you know what!! I believe It resulted in a very convincing antenna. Thanks for the comment and question!! Bob
  7. A few more photos of my completed VENOM!! Built with folded rotors to save space in the case!! GREAT KIT, I had a ton of fun building this one.. Bob
  8. Honestly I don't melieve I could cast them. Some of the styrene used up top is super thin, not sure I have the capability. PM me we can chat more! Thanks for your comments!
  9. They were Scratch built..they took some time to figure out and build!😁
  10. Floyd, Beautiful tribute!! Here are some quick photos of mine, same markings....almost complete, a few things to finish up.. really enjoyed this kit.. Only a few quick iphone photos, for now!!
  11. This may help!!
  12. I've heard of people using glued on stretched sprue, thin wire, and even hair. I have in the past repaired small sections by taped both sides of where I wanted the raised panel line, filled the gap between the tape with putty, let dry, sanded the top even with the tape. removed the tape, shot primer over it to keep it stable. It produced a decent repair!
  13. I am soooo sorry to hear this news. I find myself without words, thinking of your sweet baby girl, and the hurt your family and yourself must be enduring. She has reminded me how fragile life is, and how fast our loved ones can be taken from us. This little one must have been like the most brilliant and beautiful shooting star a person has ever seen. There will never be another as beautiful, quite as bright, nor will it touch you in the same way. You will always seek seeing another one like it, although you will not, as there was only one as fast, as beautiful, and as bright. One day I hope you and your family are reunited with you beautiful baby girl, when you see her again, I'm sure she will take your breath away. My deepest sympathies to you and your entire family. We may have never met, although the story of you daughter has touched me. I hope I will be reminded of her each time I see a shooting star. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Bob In Colorado
  14. Engines are different. OH-58D Allison 250-C30R OH-58A Allison 250-C18 C30 is more powerful althogh they look very similar! Good luck!!
  15. Hello all, this may be a long shot although in looking for parts from 1/32 EC-145 or UH-72. I must have lost some parts in my last move, it'll save me time if someone has them and not using them... im looking for: Tail mounted VOR antennas, UHF/VHF Antenna above the cabin. Wiper arm and blade for windscreen Tail cap for Lakota upper & lower wire strike devices External hoist and Bear Paws. I really don't feel like building these parts...😉 That or if someone has a 1/32 Revell UH-72 they wish to reasonably offload, please contact me! Easiest may be by email: Thanks all, be safe! Bob
