Taken by the ECM this standard cargo chopper has been outfitted with a nose mounted turret LMG and 4 Pilum one shot missiles.
It has a revised lift system that compensates for the extra armour fitted.

Capable of delivering 12 men and their advanced kit into the thick of the fight.


Here is the DRM King Roc

DEATH FROM ABOVE


This was quite a simple but fiddly conversion which needed quite a bit of drilling and pinning to ensure the blades don't fall off the central spinny thing and then the nose cannon and side wings.

Unlike my other ECM vehicles this has no signs of wear and tear and is pretty much new.
The only real wear is on the landing pads where the hazard stripes have worn off and the yellow warning stripes on the exhausts are a bit faded.

In time I am sure it will get dirty and battered though.


Below is what the original model looks like:

Here is a scale shot you so you can see how big the 6mm crafty is:

Very nice, i like the new rotor blades, better than the disc thing the model is supplied with.

Cheers.
You actually get the disc thing and a single pair of rotor blades.
I used two sets of blades and chopped two off and stuck them on another, hence the drilling and pinning needed.

Works for me !!! thumbs up

Does look much better with the quad rotors (spinny things like the one provided are best made in plastic and taped to kids comics). Good work!

Louie N20 Dec 2011 7:53 a.m. PST

A great looking model.

Looks awesome as always – and the alternate rotors are much better.

Nice one – blades look a heap better than the ring.

No yellow flash on the end to highlight them?

Mooseworks820 Dec 2011 2:37 p.m. PST

That would be awesome in 15mm!

Nandalf20 Dec 2011 3:07 p.m. PST

Wow awesome work man!

There must be some resource somewhere for 6mm rotor blades???

I needs me some for the GZG Vtols [they just look too sleek without them, far too fish-like].

I did consider that but some Googling showed very few with such markings.
I suspect, but am quite possibly very wrong here that such markings are to make them more obvious to people near the chopper.
If so these are so far from the ground on account of the chopper being a biggy that such markings would be of little use.

"There must be some resource somewhere for 6mm rotor blades???"

GHQ sell spare brass etched ones for their helicopters and I think CNC sell them as well. Very nice but not cheap.
