Picked up a used M113 and decided to convert it to an Aussie version circa 1992. Still a few things to do to it. The Blackhawk is also 1/18 and converted to S-70A specs. Cheers

P.s. If anyone has any wheels off this model in a parts box I'd be very interested.

Great job.
The turret looks great along with the paint jobs.
The BH with the 4 bladed prop who makes that ?
Did you customize the prop hub on a BBI or is that one of the Peace Keepers helos ?

I am pretty sure the standard BBI Blackhawk was 4-bladed.



I think the cheaper one was too, but I never had one of those.

Dang, I miss the good BBI stuff. I love the paint on both of the Aussie vehicles here.

WTF is that?!? I do not remember one with side guns that didn’t require cutting holes in the side of your expensive bird.

BBI did a direct to consumer "specOps blackhawk" which was basically Pickelhaube's but for sell directly.

I think it came out at $199 which was crazytalk to me, so I didn't buy one.. now they're like $600 or something ridiculous. Thankfully the one I got from you is pretty similar.
