Hughes OH-6A Cayuse . Here is my LDD model of the Hughes OH-6 Cayuse. It is built to minifig scale and is an adaptation of my MH-6 Little Bird. You can find html building instructions for sale (at a modest price) on my Etsy site: www.etsy.com/ca/shop/KurtsMOCs. . The Hughes OH-6 Cayuse Light Observation Helicopter (LOH), also known as the "Loach," was developed from the Hughes 500, and first introduced in 1966. The single-engine helicopter has a four-bladed main rotor and performed well upon its introduction, setting 23 world records for helicopters in 1966. The US Army bought over 1,400 OH-6s to perform personnel transport, attack, escort, observation, and casualty evacuation. The OH-6A had an Allison T63-A-720 turboshaft engine that produced 420 shp. Maximum speed was 175 mph. Many other countries use the OH-6 including Japan, Spain, Denmark, Taiwan, and the Dominican Republic. Not all of the air forces are still using them though. The OH-6 is also used by non-military operators, such as US Customs and Border Protection and various US city police forces. The OH-6 Cayuse was selected by Task Force 160 to fulfill the Special Operations small helicopter role. These versions of the OH-6 became the Little Bird variants. For this model, I chose to make the OH-6A version that would have been used in Vietnam. The tail of the OH-6A is different from my MH-6 Little Bird. A tricky redesign!
