Verlinden makes a bunch of 1/32 USN Deck Tractors that could be used.

The most appropriate would be either the modern Fire Tractor or Tow Tractor for moving aircraft.

Thanks. ur right it would be perfect but i am afraid the scale difference would be really noticeable.

U dont have one at home by any chance to compare scale with ur CoastGuard Jayhawk?

I don't have one at home, but have use 1/32 civilian cars and helos with 1/35 armor and figures without problem.

Some examples:

A 1/32 scale crew cab pickup I converted with 1/35 gear. This was long before the Meng crew cab was available.

1/32 car model with 1/35 tank and figures.

Also, not mine, but a 1/32 diecast car with a 1/35 figure for comparison.

The scale difference to the eye is not really noticeable. This is especially true with an item such as a deck tractor which is small and most people don't have a reference to compare them too. I will most likely be using one with mine.

Do you work on hawks?

How about posting those lift pics.

Tim

No Tim I work on movie sets and we use a lot of various lifts. Someone had posted a photo of a lift while I was working on my Huey by the tail of a CH53.

Heres the difference between scale from

1/48 to 1/35 to 1/32.

Since the tractor will be by the tail i believe the difference is slightly noticeable...i will proceed anyway with both scale.

Heavyarty...im on the fence about this one..

I'm not following your comparison. What are the scales of the tugs and jeep in the pic?

Gino,

I believe it is 1/48 at the top, then 1/35 jeep and finally 1/32 tug. For what it's worth, Oliver, I agree with Gino. No very noticeable difference between the 1/32 and 1/35 stuff to me.

well I got my MH-60S in the mail today from Korea , the decals are excellent , you and make one of three different birds HCS-9, HCS-21, HCS-28. The kit itself is same ole' Academy H-60 with and extra tree. So the unused parts will come in handy on the other H-60 kits lacking enough chaff and flare buckets. overall I am very pleased , going to buy a second one

Good deal. I just ordered one as well. Can you take some detailed pics of the new sprue and post them here? Any details on the interior of the new doors?
