Hi All, Iím building an Australian Black Hawk and am after a set of wings from the Kitty Hawk kit along with the mounting pylons that come with the kit. Iím going to attempt to lengthen the kit ones to become the longer ESSS wings that the Aussies use.

If anyone has a set of parts that they arenít going to use Iíd be very grateful

Thanks

I may have a spare set of the longer ESSS wings and their supports (two hard points per side) from the Academy kit if you are interested. I will check at home tonight. Let me know if you want them and we can work something out.

Thanks for your quick reply and offer Gino but Iím after the KH ones because of the extra detail they have. Iím hoping I can conduct a bit of surgery and end up with the longer ESSS wings and two pylons to attach the academy fuel tanks to.

No problem. Let me know if you don't find the KH ones.

Hopefully with more people working on the KH Black Hawk there might be someone willing to part with their ESSS wings?
