AH-6 Little Bird Wooden Model
Military Mahogany is proud to offer this AH-6 wooden model to our series of beautiful hand crafted models.For years we have heard the cry for this model and we finally did something about it. We are the exclusive dealer with this model, look all you want, this is the only place you will find it. We spent a lot of time, money and effort to get this model correct and I think we came pretty darn close. We added an extra main rotor blade to make this a 6 M/R system, 4 bladed tail/rotor, hydra rocket pods and of course miniguns. Most models claiming to be AH-6 series are based off of the MD-500 civilian version with the long skid arms, not us, we had our specially lowered for accuracy.
The AH-6 Little Bird is a highly modified version of the McDonnell Douglas 530 series commercial helicopter. The light attack aircraft has a single turbine engine and a dual flight control. It is primarily employed in close air support of ground troops, target destruction raids, and armed escort of other aircraft. The AH-6J normally is flown by two pilots.
