  1. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I actually really don't care. I just find the seesaw between "I build for me and don't care about accuracy" and then changing stuff that's wrong when people call you out on it entertaining as all hell 🤣
  2. The top mounted FLIR is correct for the SH-60B, MH-60R, and HH-60H...not the MH-60S. So "right" is a point of view. But I digress. So let me get this straight...you gave them your design...and now you're pissed they copied it? What did you think was going to happen? That's just naive and hilarious. Good luck with that. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 < smileys for upbeat tone >
  3. BWAHAHAHAHAHA are you serious? The MH-60S has been in service for years in multiple configurations that have been thoroughly documented...several of which shown in the picture will probably be available in different issues of the coming kit. I *highly* doubt Kitty Hawk said "hey, let's copy this random nobody's model build" when there are tons of actual legitimate and accurate references out there...such as...um...the real helicopter? If they truly *copied* your build they would have put the FLIR turret on the wrong side too lol. Just a *wee* bit full of ourselves aren't we 🤣🤣🤣
  4. Syndi shouldn't eat that much chocolate...diabeetus can really take a toll on someone her age combined with her high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity.
  5. The hinges "work just as the real ones do"...ok they open and close. You're nowhere in the neighborhood even close to an actual correct folding rotor head though. As CrazyGlueSniffer posted there's more than just hinge action in the folding. There's movement of the entire hinge mount on each blade as well as rotation. Yellow line is the centerline of the rotor head arm...red is the centerline of the hinge and mount assembly. It moves. Left and right. Blue line is the top of the rotor head arm...green is the top of the hinge and mount assembly. It moves. Up and down. Orange is the centerline of the rotor head arms...purple is the centerline of the hinge and mount assembly. It rotates. Up and down. If you want to do it halfway and leave the kit rotor head as is with new hinges calling it a pretty good looking and accurate folded rotor head...good luck with that. Nice try though.

  7. I agree. Nice to see racing in it's appropriate setting. Unlike some people who go 82 in a 65 then complain about the cop giving them a ticket.
