Seriously, you probably won't like it in that scale. When I got my AH-6 Stealth (the wrong choice for this conversion, ugly gold canopy), I was shocked at how tiny the kit is. Seriously, in 48, it is absolutely tiny! I could not imagine this in 72nd. One of two things would happen. It would either be so small, that there would be no detail at all. Or, it would have way too much detail, looking more and more silly by mad rivets and panel lines that in scale, would be the size of a swimming pool.
I had bought the AH-6 Stealth, thinking that was the only kit these conversions worked with. I screwed up and cut out the rear door on one bird, only to realize that there was no door and I just destroyed the fuselage. My blessing in disquise. I have ordered proper kits with clear canopies to do this conversion. One as the AH-6J,the other an MH-6. These were intended to be my first builds in a very long time. My last build was in the late 80's, so I am basically starting over again. The two kits that are wrong, will be test kits for the new tools and methods I learning online.
If you really want to do a little bird, just go with the new Kitty Hawk kits in 35th. Or if you like a challenge, go with the police helicopter in 48th, then use the CMK conversion. They have A conversion or M, I am doing both.
Should be fun, hope this helps!
