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.
