Hughes 500 Defender T.O.W. 1/48

December 29, 2013 in Aviation

This is academys 1/48 kit of the Hughes 500D with TOW anti-tank missiles.
A very nice kit to build and there is a number of different kits using the same basic moulds.
It has good detail and a good fit.
I built it almost out of the box, I only replaces the antenna in the back with stainless steel wire.

  1. Johan,
    I rally like what you have done here. A great looking model of a great little chopper. I was fortunate enough to get Ride in one of the companies choppers flown by a former Army pilot that flew one in Vietnam. Great ride.

  2. the Original Little Bird! looks good, thanks for sharing!
