Anthony D'Agostino There are plenty of figures out there, probably better quality too. Live-Resin makes a bunch of pilots and operators to choose from, and their quality is almost unmatched. Take a look at their offerings.

Cheers,

Anthony

Treehugger Uuh, I would be happy to see figures included regardless. :| I think the AH-6 kit I have from Kitty Hawk is without figures (edit: yes, I checked).
7. August at 14:41:33
Anthony D'Agostino You have to be careful with Kitty Hawk, they are still relatively new and don't have their sea legs yet.

Their kits with figures are KH50002 and KH50004. One with board passengers for the MH version, the other with wounded troops on the ground. The middle kit, which you obviously bought is KH50003, and the price is about half the other two, but the same kit inside. Not sure why they charge so much for the figures, I can't see how they are actually worth the price of the kit, but maybe I am wrong, and they are worth the extra cash.

Goodluck with your build anyway, with or without figures, I understand it builds up nicely.

Cheers,

Anthony

Anthony D'Agostino 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!

Anthony D'Agostino
To fix a major boneheaded mistake with the AH-6 Stealth, I just ordered two of these kits. I am going to convert these into a pair of 160th SOAR Little Birds via two CMK resin conversions. For those of you doing a similar conversion, DON'T use the AH-6 Stealth from Academy, the canopy is a horrible gold(ish) color. This kit and any of the other kits from this line will work with the CMK conversion and you will have a proper canopy as well.

My mistake was removing the doors, I accidentally took off too much "door" on the starboard side. Only there was no door to remove! Like I said, boneheaded mistake! These were supposed to be my first models in more than thirty years. Having messed up the one, I then learned that these other normal kits work with the conversion, so I think it was fate. Now I will build out the "stealth" birds as a testing kit only. I have a lot to learn, and since these kits are cheap, it makes a good kit to practice on.

All those doing the same conversion, good luck, hope you have a great build!

13. July 2013 at 10:59:30
Andreas Lundqvist Its to bad that I've got the wrong front window. But it will have to do on this build.
13. July 2013 at 11:01:50
Anthony D'Agostino Just wanted to say nice work, the scratch built seat looks better than the factory one as well. I have two of these kits, but only one weapons upgrade, I am looking to get the other CMK conversion, the one with benches on the outside, so two variations of the subject. I am nowhere near the same skill level as you, this is my first try with resin as well, I haven't built a model in more than thirty years. Figured I would start with something simple, and it doesn't get much simpler than these littke birds.

Question, what did you mean you had the wrong windshield? That caught my eye in a bad way, is the windscreen different on the AH-6J over the MD500? Is there a conversion windscreen that you know of?

Thanks in advance, Anthony "Stalker6Recon" D'Agostino
28. March at 17:59:02
Michael Hickey Amazing workmanship, really well done, congrats.
29. March at 01:40:56
Andreas Lundqvist Thanks guys.
This was a fun build.
Anthony, only thing wrong with the windscreen is the tint. The one I got is tinted and not clear. I don't know if any conversionkits, but other kit versions of this chopper comes with a clear screen.
29. March at 05:07:44
Holger Kranich Cool build! And an interesting approach to build the frame first and then the interior!
29. March at 07:17:00
Anthony D'Agostino Now I understand, I thought that the frame may have been wrong, but the glass color, makes sense, it is ugly. From what I read, they were trying to recreate the gold tint electronic protection that was used on the actual model the kit is meant to build. Do you know if this conversion works with the other kits in the same line? If my kit comes out looking decent, and that is a BIG IF, I might buy two newer kits just for the glass. So far, I have cut the doors out already, which is a bit scary since the frame left over around the pilots, is already thin, after removing the front doors, it razor thin, thought it was going to break during the cutting process. I did notice that you patched the upper fuselage over both rear door openings. Can you explain why you did that? You obviously know what you are doing, so I want to repeat as much of the details that you did, its a high bar to reach, but I have to at least try.

Thanks again for the info and sharing such a nice build with us.

29. March at 08:09:06
Andreas Lundqvist Anthony, I think the resin will fit all version of this kit. I belive there is a police version as well. But cant say for sure. Maby other brands also.
Have a nice time building, I believe it will turn out great.
29. March at 16:47:54
Anthony D'Agostino Thanks, I am moving along, slow and steady..........thise doors were a chore!
30. March at 10:09:04
Anthony D'Agostino Guess what I did? I will keep you out of the horrible suspense I put you in as I am not cruel. Anyway, as you know, I am building two helicopters from this same kit, with aftermarket upgardes to the attack folding board troop carrier version. You know about removing the doors before building of course. Well since these are my first kits in years, I already made a HUGE MISTAKE. First, I removed both port side doors via scoring a thousand times via sewing needle in my x-acto handle with sewing needle attacked. Then I did the starboard side, not problems. Then it came time for the second bird to enter surgery. When I lookd closer to, I realized that the rear door is molded separately. This means that whatever I cut out of the first bird needed to be fixed.

So, instead and smashing my head thru a wall, I tool this as a reason to buy new kits with the proper clear canopies! I will build these as OOB just for the practice, since my last build was 3+ years ago.

Now I just need to find and order two more Hughes 500D kits online and hope I don't get robbed on shipping. Meanwhile, I am going to Frankenstein the hell out of these kits, doing lots of damage/repair and even scratch build so stuff just for the learning experience.

Thanks for sharing your build,

Anthony stalker6recon D'Agostino

Just a small head-up for the decal options:

Some of the birds were converted many times, so check your pics and time frame !! Hope this helps a bit. Jakub

81-23653 MH-6E to MH-6H
81-23655 EH-6E to MH-6E
81-23636 MH-6E to MH-6H to MH-6J to MH-6M
84-24683 AH-6F to AH-6G to AH-6M - probably not useful with this conversion
88-25356 AH-6J - probably not useful with this conversion
90-25361 MH-6J
95-25371 AH-6J - probably not useful with this conversion

Anthony D'Agostino Ok, now you got me worried. I have not built a model in 30+ years, so to get back into it, I choose this kit with weapons upgrades. I have a second kit, but still need to find this upgrade with running boards, they should make a nice pair. I am hoping to have the two from the same period, maybe even same mission. Can anyone say Irene?

Now that I am getting back into modelling after such a long layoff, I for some reason care a lot about accuracy of the models/numbers, but I am not yet able to tell one version from the other, just by sight.

Can you elaborate on the changes, or tell me what two versions I can build safely as accurate kits. One again is the CMK weapons upgrade kit, the second will be this kit. Need them to be accurate since I plan to display them together.

Thanks in advance, Anthony Stalker6recon D'Agostino
28. March at 18:56:44
Jakub Cikhart Hi, the best will be go over ARC page forums and ask/look there, as there is a specific AH-6 thread. You could find the best info there, or just ask. I am not that big expert on specific version... Thanks !
29. March at 07:55:07
Anthony D'Agostino Thanks, will do that, Anthony

Gertjan Zwart The landing gear being the only interesting part of the conversion, it is a pity the gear is based on the Academy landing gear, which is completely wrong: the skids and the struts are too short. You get a pop-out floats- equipped '500 that sits much too low. Quality of the resin is extremely poor: this kit can better be left alone...

22. October 2012 at 07:30:00
Austin K Just found this. Good job! I was planning on doing this will the same kit, although I had a hard time getting figures for the pilots. What figures did you use there?
1. September 2013 at 03:13:58
Es-haq Khosravi Excellent!
1. September 2013 at 04:22:30
Justin F Thanks guys. Austin, the figures were made up of a mixture of bits. I'm not 100% sure about the pilots but I think they were old Matchbox or more likely Airfix figures with the heads from the Italeri NATO pilots set 1246 (if you look here plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=603, it's the bottom row extreme left guy I think). The gunners heads were from ground crew in that set too. The port gunner's body is from the Caesar Modern US Army set H030. The starboard gunner's torso is from a SAW gunner in the Revell US Infantry set 02520. I'm not sure where his legs came from! If I was to do it again I'd give the gunners proper helmets as well instead of just headsets.

One of my first helicopter kits. I was a fan of Magnum PI's Hughes 500 so I painted the Tamiya OH-6 in a livery that superficially resembled TC's Island Hoppers' 500 from that series and also replaced the OH-6- low skid landing gear with the higher skid gear from the then just released Academy kit. Boy was I an idiot! Nowadays I would gladly donate a kidney for one or two of these Tamiya 1:48 '500's/ OH-6's!

Dave Fassett Here are some photos of my current build which,When finished, will be an AH-6M. The base kits are the 1/48 Academy MH-6 Stealth kit, CMK's AH-6F/J conversion set and engine set. These are all good starting points but there is still going to be a ton of modification and scratch building involved in this build. The photos below are of the progress so far, they are all in the "rough stage" and are in no way finished pieces. The vertical stab still lacks another sanding/priming, rivet detail, tail skid, lower scab plates, and anti-collision light. The skids lack another sanding/priming, rivet detail, reinforcement pads on the bottom of each skid, and tie down points. The rear door openings have been enlarged but still need work.

I have started work on the Ultra 9HD FLIR pod and the new exhaust for the Rolls-Royce 250-C30-R3M engine, which will be exposed. Work on the cockpit and rear area will hopefully be started soon to. This will include all of the current avionics, radios, and associated wiring. This along with the engine bay will take the most work/time and be the most trying. PLEASE let me know if you all have any comments, corrections, or questions.

The 1979 boxing of the Cayuse appears to be a rebox of the 1969 kit, however the civil version has been dropped and the decals are now for 17340 'Miss Clawd IV' of the US Army
