    1/72 281st UH-1B

    Okay, so while ARC was down, I did some research. Both on the Son Tay Raid (including the declassified AAR or whatever they called the AARs back then) and with the 281st Hueys (in support of project delta and other groups). I have chosen to go with the Huey. They used the UH-1D and the UH-1B to drop guys off. Edit: It appears that the UH-1B slicks have followed this sort of pattern: they started off ISO 5th SFG's Detachment B-52 as 145th Aviation PLT, combining with 6th PLT (gunships) to become 2/171st AV Company. the 171st was replaced by the 281st, who in early 1966 still used UH-1B slicks to drop off dudes, but started using UH-1D's in late 1966. It looks like somewhere in AUG 1966 they started painting 281 on the doors. So this diorama will be set in early 1966 with a UH-1B slick doing a drop off via rappelling. The two main references I have been using have been these two websites: http://www.281stahc.org/page2.html http://www.projectdelta.net/index.html Take care, Austin

    Two more Hawks

    Thanks guys! Ray, I've been working on them for a while, no speed building here... Mason, thanks for drawing them up! Huey_crew_chief, thanks! I used FS 35237 for the grey, fs 34097 for the green and fs 34031 (army helo drab) for the olive drab. Joseph over at Fireball Modelworks printed up those decals for me along with my CO NG decals a while back, and they turned out very well. Moritz, I have some Vietnam era helo dioramas to do first, but I'm entertaining the thought of a "foreign service helo" theme for the following set of dioramas... Take care, Austin

    Soooo I finished these and when I went to post the pictures, the forums went down. Fun stuff. Anywho, here's to being back First up is the Hasegawa kit and some ArmyCast M&M resin as a Colombian Army Hawk. Next up is the Fujimi kit and some mods to make it an MH-60A with Floyd's decals. Take care, Austin

    Inspiration Station

    Aight, so listen (read) up. Here's a spot to share your favorite pics/video/story/etc of the real deal or some models you built in the past. Inspiration is a beautiful thing. Pass it on, yo Anywho, without further ado, I'll start off with three builds that I'm probably entirely too proud of errr, that I've done in the past... Hope that inspires! Take care, Austin

    What's being built?

    I'm open for suggestions. I was thinking of starting off with one of my five or so vietnam themed dioramas off with this GB. I have two ideas that are of SOF related. One is some dudes rappelling out the back of a UH-1B, although from the photo I have I can't tell what markings the helo has... The other is Banana 1! but really, it's from the Son Tay Raid... Anyways, tomorrow I'll post some inspiration, at least you helo guys will dig it... Take care, Austin

    MH-6M Little Bird Conversion

    Here's the two I found. I can't remember where I originally saw them. I believe they were only on AH-6's (not MH-6's) in Somalia... HTH, Austin
