so both helicopters have different rotor heads???

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.

It is a pitty they will not do the option to fold the rotor blades (as I understood Floyd) since it is possible to fold them manually.

I did preorder pave hawk and now I am considering to cancel it and wait for the navy one. I just couldn't imagine that beside all those opened panels and exposed engine they will no do the option to fold blades. 

I just like it more with folded blades so I planed to make it as "ready for transport",  tide up, with fod's etc, or even during inspections.

Maybe I'll stick to the order if it can be done without too much surgery... any ideas how difficult it might be?

Also, any inside info on release date? :)

I never said that you won't be able to fold the blades.  They had the references so maybe.  I don't know that part of it.  I only see the nose avionics panel exposed.  We've, KH and I, have talked about having them closed up and a score line on the inside.  I think that is the current state they are doing.  The avionics door off is so you can see the detail contained inside.  There is no release date as of now.  It looks like it was pushed back into early 2019.  Not sure why.

Oh, ok, than there still is the chance for folded blades. You said that they do plan on it for all the Navy variants, which for me meant not for others 😄 

Hmm, few shops in Europe accept preorders with release date indicated mid October... I guess they will have to revise that

I've found out in the meantime that Croatia is getting two UH-60M , so I'll start to look for options to make an conversion

What is up with that M249 though?  It's not 1996 anymore.

 

Pet peeve: model companies have ignored the PIP polymer stock, the Savit stock, & the new M248/M240L buttstock.

Found some new pics of the interior of the new KH MH-60L. Should be an awesome model!!!

I would post the pics, but I'm at work, so that's a no go. Hopefully Gino will post them later.

Hopefully this means they're getting closer to being done. Fingers crossed, I guess!!!
