The Italeri Pave Low kit has a number of problems. The tail rotor is backwards. The bottom blade moves towards the ramp in the real H-53. The biggest problem with the kit is the main rotor blades. They are the wrong type. The kit blades are the original aluminum blades used on the early HH and CH-53s. The blades for a Pave Low should be titanium. The blade’s shape is different. The only big difference between a MH-53J and a MH-53M is the cockpit instrument panel. Please don’t confuse a MH-53J/M with a CH-53E or MH-53E. They are totally different helicopters. Any conversion parts for the “E” model helicopters will not work on a “J/M” model helicopters.
Very useful info, thank you very much!
That´s the reason I asked about the Eduard PE kit, I wasn´t sure it would work for the J version.
I think that I´m gonna make the heli "out of the box" because I can´t find any aftermarket pieces for it, so I´ll try to scrath what I could.
I´m already with it and I´ll make a maintenance scene despite the model is not very accurate as you say. Maybe I can remove the blades and lay them over a rack......
Thanks again for the useful info!!
