SOAR Nightstalkers AH-6J Little Bird

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I started Dragon's 1:35 AH-6J for the Helicopter 2 GB last June but subsequently never finished it. After two stints on the shelf of doom and nearly 18 months later the current KUTA GB inspired me to get it done. This was far from a user friendly build at times. Trying to squeeze everything into the fuselage was the biggest challenge with lots of dry fitting, sanding, dry fitting, sanding etc. Extras wise I used parts from Eduard's PE for OH-6, RB Models brass minigun barrels, Mike Grant cockpit dial decals and Werner's Wings - Night Stalkers Pt.1 decals. A massive thank you also goes to Damocles for providing the Cobra Company FLIR turret and AndyL for the multi function cockpit displays from a 1:32 F-18.

Wow, that weathering is absolutely fantastic! I've been toying with the idea of putting an MH-6 together for a while, but I know for sure it'd turn out not even half as good as what you've done!

Amazing build!

Daryl.

Hi Wolwe82.

Funny you should mention that. The paint was a custom mix of Vallejo acrylics Black, Light Grey and a touch of White. The oil work was Mig Abteilung Snow White, German Grey Highlight, Faded Grey, Industrial Earth and Shadow Brown. I was following Jamie Haggo's blog that I picked up from your Mosquito build in the Less than a Tenner group build. :thumbsup2:
