    Black Ops Model Little Bird Pilots Review

    RGR, that is what I thought you meant. Just clarifying. Thanks.

    Black Ops Model Little Bird Pilots Review

    Which figures; Black Ops or Reedoak?

    Black Ops Model Little Bird Pilots Review

    All of the Reedoak figures come in 1/35, 1/48, 172, and 1/144. They are 3D printed and can be sized to suit.

    Black Ops Model Little Bird Pilots Review

    You would have to remove the molded on seats for them to go in a Hawk. Not sure if they would fit in the seats in the proper position though. Reedoak has a few different seated Hawk pilots that are really nice.
  5. I have written a review of the new Black Ops Models modern Little Bird pilots for their AH/MH-6M conversions. They are really nice figures and can be seen here.
  6. Yes, the USN (and USCG) version has the provisions to power fold included in the rotor head. They also have different shaped rotor blades with the blade root angled to accommodate folding. The Army and USAF version have a fixed rotor head.
  7. No, US Army (and USAF) H-60s do not have folding rotors like USN H-60s do. They can be folded, but not easily and not automatically like USN H-60s can with a switch from within the cockpit. For Army H-60s, each blade has to be manually folded by removing a couple bolts and adding a spacer (red pieces below) that secures the blade in the folded position at the blade root. US Army Black Hawks USAF HH-60G Pave Hawk Specialized, auto-folding USN H-60 rotor head. Very different than the "fixed" rotor head used on US Army and USAF Hawks.
  8. Maybe ever so slightly. Easy to adjust during construction.

    1/35 scale "Holy Grail" of Jeep Collectors

    Apparently so. I didn't pay anything near what it is listed at though. I think I found it on eBay for $25. It also includes resin wheel hubs and brake cyclinders. They have a bunch of other wooden military accessory kits as well. GC Laser Products Jeep Crate

    1/35 scale "Holy Grail" of Jeep Collectors

    Very nice. I like the presentation. I did similar with a laser-cut wood kit a few years ago.

    abrams A1M2 APS trophy

    Which version of Abrams are you talking about? There is no such thing as an A1M2. The Trophy APS is being tested on the M1A2 SEP v2 tank, but has not yet been fielded.

    Academy MH 60 S Helicopter 1/35 scale/

    I don't think two posts w/4 pictures is "flooding the board". I see it as demonstrating my point, but to each their own.
  14. Latest test build pics posted. It is looking better and better.

    Academy MH 60 S Helicopter 1/35 scale/

    Why is it that no one can say anything other than "Wow, I am amazed at how great this looks"? I never said it looks bad or wasn't good, nor did I demand anything be changed. I was just commenting on someone else's question as to the accuracy of the color used. I have said in the past that he is doing a great job, just not my cup of tea on the side of accuracy. It is a shame that this site is getting as bad as the rediculous political climate where no one can say anything without getting yelled down because it is not what everyone else in the group thinks. Quite sad that dissenting comments can't be given.
