  1. I recently acquired an Academy 1/35 MH-60G kit (2201). It is missing all of the main rotor parts off the B sprue. Does anyone have an extra B sprue or a complete main rotor system for it. Any of the Academy 1/35 H-60 kits will work as the B sprues are the same in all of them. Let me know what you have and we can work something out.
  2. At least the A-10 UAV was tested by DARPA. https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/defense/2012-02-24/unmanned-10-studied-future-close-air-support Sounds like a logical concept for Persistent CAS.
  3. Nice pic. Another question though. What is the four-blade tail rotor in this pic from the same page?
  4. Full walk-around of one of the preserved ones at the Army Aviation Museum, Ft Rucker, AL. http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/bill_spidle2/uh-1b_60-3553/ In Vietnam:
  5. A CUCV is not a modified HMMWV. It was the interim predecessor to the HMMWV. CUCV (Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicle) was a Dodge (1st batch) pick ups or Chevy (2nd batch) pick ups and Blazers that were used to fill a gap when the M151 jeeps were being phased out and before the HMMWV was available. M880 Dodge pick up CUCV M1008 Chevy pick up CUCV M1009 Chevy Blazer CUCV
  6. CG Bob and I have discussed this before as well. To me, the International Orange looks more correct for the white-based scheme as seen on the MH-60J/T, C-130, etc. That is what I used on my 1/35 MH-60J conversion. Crappy pics, but you get the idea. The Chevy Engine Red looks more like what is seen on MH-65Cs. I have been told they are not the same color and they are painted a color called Tangarine Orange, not the USCG Red as he states.

    Looks great. The FRIES rig fits in perfectly. One note. Kitty Hawk omitted the three small triangular supports on the starboard side of the ceiling. In your pic, there are three tringular roof spars on the oustide part of the left side. These should also be present on the right side.
  8. Whooaa, what happened to all the posts between Sun and today? I guess the site had a glitch. Still looks good and looking forward to the coming "AM sets".
  9. Just saw these new pilots' side shields on a recent HH-60G pic. The armored glass shields are pretty interesting. Similar to the gunshields w/windows on vehicles. Floyd, think yo could make these?
