  1. The difference is relatively small, sort of. 1/32 is 9.143% larger than 1/35. You can use the two scales together as long as constant-sized items such as weapons, canteens, ammo pouches, etc. are all the same scale. I have used 1/35 pilots, soldiers, and gear with 1/32 helicopters in the past. They look fine together. If you go the other way though, 1/32 figures with 1/35 helicopters or vehicles, it doesn't work as well since the figures are too big, almost 10% larger. A couple examples. 1/35 Dragon pilots and Bravo 6 MP with 1/32 Revell Cobra. 1/
  2. Interesting. Where did you hear that? Any drawings or CAD images yet? I would prefer 1/35 though.
  3. I have never seen ski fitted to a USCG Jay Hawk, not even in Alaska. I don't think they use them.
  4. Academy/MRC does/did a UH-1C, which is a very different model. The only 1/35 UH-1B was done a while ago by Korean company SAR/Seminar. It was a so-so kit. I welcome a new UH-1B, and eventually the other types. We have waited this long, what is a little longer? Kitty Hawk is pumping out their H-60 versions pretty quickly. I'm sure they will do the same once the Hueys start coming out.
  5. The rear transmission and rotor shaft.
  6. Looks like it is coming along nicely. Good job.
  7. Usually, the early red seats would be both rear and front. The seat fabric all changed at the same time and would have been matched when new birds were sent to country. I would think it would be more common to see some w/red pilot's seats and replaced/repaired rear seats w/green though.
  8. They don't have a website. You can contact Sofia in Customer Service via email: sophialynm@gmail.com
  9. Two more Kitty Hawk naval H-60s should be available by the end of the year. MH-60R "SeaHawk" HH-60H "Rescue Hawk"
  10. I paint optics black first, then a couple coats of a clear color (green, red, blue, etc.) depending on the color of the actual optic. Then give it two or three coats of a clear gloss for depth. This method looks right to me.
  11. Some had names, some didn't. It depended on the unit. Again, the best bet is to find a picture of one you like.
  12. I have some spares from the Academy Blackhawk kits listed above. Send me a PM and we can work something out.
  13. You would be looking to build a UH-60L for that time period. I would look for some pics, find one you like, and model it.
  14. Yes, it will fit all the Academy H-60s since they all use the same fuselage, just different bits and bobs added to make the different versions.
  15. It is a conversion set designed to convert the Academy 1/35 H-60s into an Israeli UH-60A/L. It includes resin and PE in the set, plus decals for it.
  16. Not saying there were no H-21 gunships, but none of the 5 decal options shown are gunships. The kit may contain gunship parts as well, but again, no gunship versions are shown.
  17. It looks nice. It isn't really a 'gunship" though. It is a standard troop carrier with a door gun. Gunships have fixed, forward firing guns to strafe a target with, like UH-1B/C Gunships.
  18. I find the KH blades droop just enough under their own weight. They look right to me straight from the box.
  19. No need to lighten up. I am not offended nor upset. Your initial post is exactly what I expect from you.
  20. With all the great work he did, that is what you focus on...really???
  21. Here is Pete Becerra's excellent build of Kitty Hawk's 1/35 SH-60B at Aeroscale: https://forums.kitmaker.net/t/kitty-hawk-sh-60b-build/1762 A teaser.
  22. Items are for sale or trade. Prices are very negotiable. Make me a reasonable offer and I’ll probably take it. If you buy it, you pay postage. If we trade, we each pay our own postage. Will ship worldwide. I am motivated to move these items. Make me a reasonable offer and I will probably take it. Sale/Trade List. Academy: 1/35 RQ-7B UAV $25 Black Ops Models: 1/35 AH-6M Rotor conversion (6 blade set) for H-6A/J $5 Cobra Company: 1/35 XM-23 Doorgun set for UH-1 (CC35017) $15 Dragon: 1/35 AH-6J Little Bird with B
