Helicopter / Autogyro / STOVL GB Chat


Recommended Posts

Often the bridesmaid and never the Bride. We are long overdue a whirlybirds GB. So here's your chance.

I thought by including autogyros and STOVL as well we would encourage as many people as possible participate.

You can put me down for an interested party.  I've got a Seahawk, Cobra, Lynx, and Seaking in the stash for certain off the top of my head.



Though the likelihood of actually having the time to do it is totally up in the air.  :whistle:

At the suggestion of @Hockeyboy76I've included STOVL as well, which give even more scope to building out of the ordinary. 

 

I have a Huma Flettner Fl282 "Kolibri" which I have been wanting to build for a long time.

 

Cheers Pat

Some would say great minds think alike, some would say coincidence, others would just say cobblers!

 Stick me down my good man. 

Im also nominating @nimrod54 & @Hewy

Pat old boy.. fancy seeing you lurking around here trying to solicit interest from mere passers by? 

Now I don't have too many choppers in my stash, however I've been itching to build one of my 1/32 Matchbox Puma's (sans proper decals), so this might just be the impetus to get me going.  @Hockeyboy76 - you know I've got way too much on to even consider this... but it looks to be a good cast assembling, so why the hell not?

 

Cheers and good luck with this GB proposal... Dave

Ahhh... something I can believe in.  Perhaps I'll do something aligned with that age old expression, "a WOC is something that you fwo at a wabbit".  If you're familiar with Fort Wolters during the 60's and 70's, you should get the inference.

Go on then - Wessex me up!

 

Matchbox and Novo in the stash somewhere - unless some kind soul comes up with a 1/32 Scout in the meantime. 🙏

 

ooh - just found an Italeri one as well - triple build perhaps?

Gosh only if this could have come sooner, I could have planned my Hind build for this one, finished the frog monsters and kept Pat happy!!!  As if!!! :wicked:

 

Well here's another chance to annoy make Pat's day! :tease:

 

Someone must have been looking at my stash as I have a few that are actually in the planning stage and was just trying to find and excuse to build one of them.

 

1/48

Kitty Hawk AH-1Z Viper

Italeri HAP Tigre with conversion kit to AHR-1 (to be built for junior as he did work on them in the Army, now on Drones)

 

1/35

Kitty Hawk AH-6J/MH-6J "Littlebird"

Kitty Hawk MH-60L Blackhawk

Academy AH-1Z Viper - coming soon

 

Now if someone did a good Vietnam era Cobra??

I know in the modern world in which we live I shouldn't laugh, but I just spat me beer all over the floor....😀

I woke up in the middle of the night giggling over this.

Put me down as interested. 

 

I have no helis in the stash, but it would not take much persuasion (I.e. none) to add one of the Bristol’s to the stash (Sycamore or Belvedere).
