Helicopter 2 Campaign/Group Build Interest Thread

I’m not sure which kit to build. I have the kiowa oh58d from academy in the stash but I’d like to build a huey gunship or a South Vietnamese uh34 but I’d have to purchase those kits.

need to sleep on this one. :wink:

Ok, so I have the Academy 1/35th ah1z too, so I think I am up for this as well.

Good job on setting up the campaign here!

Thanks, Jim.

welcome aboard mate

Okay, decision made on my build. Maybe… Potentially… Pulled the pin and ordered the SH 60B direct from Kitty Hawk on yesterday. I have .pdf copies of the NATOPS SH 60B and the Blackhawk TM if anyone is building one of those helos and wants them for reference, they are big files however.

For those building one of the Kitty Hawk 1/35 Naval H-60s, there is a minor issue with the Naval rotor head. Check here for a tutorial on how to fix it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/369828906819827/permalink/989974901471888/

A better step for assembling the rotor hub as well. It isn’t clear on the SH-60B/F instructions: https://www.facebook.com/groups/369828906819827/permalink/965740190562026

There are also some issues with the SH-60F and MH-60S initial release instructions.

SH-60F corrections: https://www.facebook.com/groups/369828906819827/permalink/962568640879181

MH-60S corrections: https://www.facebook.com/groups/369828906819827/permalink/965731073896271

The SH-60B instructions seem complete.

Well I sourced this book and it was a little costly, but had to have it.
I’m ready for this to start.

Pete, that looks awesome. You started and worked quickly on it. I love the KH H-60 kits. I may have to get started on an HH-60H conversion soon.

My -60B arrived bright and early on Thursday, complete with cookies for the dogs for not eating the FedEx guy. Woohoo!!! Is it time yet?

@white4doc

Christmas is the launch date, still time to buy those accessories and detail kits

This is my whole haul of AM for this kit, I’m really surprised at the price of everything! It was only $145!
