Here is the last of my Little Bird LDD models: the AH-6. It is built to minifig scale and an adaptation of my earlier MH-6 and OH-6.
About this creation

The AH-6 Little Bird light attack helicopter evolved out of the armed OH-6A Cayuse for the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment's 1st Battalion. The current iteration of the AH-6 is now based on the civilian MD530F and known as the AH-6M.


The AH-6 was designed to support the MH-6 transport as it ferried personnel to and from hot zones.


My model is based on the AH-6M Mission Enhanced Little Bird (MELB) used by the US military’s Special Forces. Boeing is now producing their proprietary version of the AH-6 as well.


The civilian MD530F uses a six-blade main rotor and a four-blade tail rotor. The engine is an Allison 250-C30 turboshaft putting our 425 shp.


The AH-6 can cruise at 155 mph with a top speed of 175 mph.


This model has two 7.62mm M134 miniguns, LAU-68D/A seven tube rocket pods, and two AGM-114 Hellfire anti-tank guided missiles fitted to the two universal mounts.


This model uses desert camouflage, a change from the normal Little Bird black. The design of the "Killer Egg" is almost fifty years old and still going strong!


Here are my AH-6, MH-6, and OH-6. All in black, of course!

Quoting Florida Shoooter Outstanding work! The guns and rockets are nice. Great work with the shaping.
Thanks for the comments! The Little Bird/MD-500 shape is tricky to model correctly at this scale. I'm glad you like my variation.

Quoting killswitch95 [DEMON] all i saw was dual miniguns... win!
Nasty combination, I admit, but two would tend to settle any argument.
