  4. 1/48 CH-53E

    Does anyone know if the Academy 1/48 MH-53 can be converted to CH-53E? I have a friend and his wife who both recently retired USMC as 53 pilots... wanted to build them a desk model of helo they flew. I'm thinking one half of the helo in each of their aircraft markings😁 Im not familiar with either of these kits.. Any info would be appiciated.. can't believe the prices some are asking for the Academy 1/48 CH-53E😳 I get its discontinued but $800.00 plus.... I don't think so!! Respectfully, Bob
  5. What'd ya see today???

    Saw these guys here last Friday at Eagle County Regional Airport Colorado.
  6. 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
  7. I was asked to share this photo in this thread! MH-6M from Alpha Company, TF1-160th SOAR(A) training @ HAATS in Colorado..

    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
  10. What'd ya see today???

    Another training day at HAATS! In Colorado!!
  11. Recently completed KH 1/48 UH-1Y

    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
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. They were Scratch built..they took some time to figure out and build!😁
  15. 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!!
