Super interesting conversion... I remember seeing it come to life here on Armorama. It is great hearing the cast is good and the pieces fit to the donor kit well. Thanks for the review Gino!

I'm also interested in availability and the price of the set.

The converted MH has a 6 blade rotor, the Dragon kits have 4 or 5 blades (depending on variant). Does that mean two donor kits are required or does the conversion include the extra blades?

The conversion is intended for the Dragon AH-6J Little Bird kit. It comes with an extra (6th) rotor blade on the sprues. It is the only kit with the 6th blade included.
