    does anybody know if there's a card model for this little chopper or any of its variants?

    In my early travels I came across a japanese language site, which had a variety of helicopter models
    OH-6, RSRA(S-72 from Sikorsky), and some other helicopters, the designer, ripped these helicopters from the Microsoft Flight Simulator files.

    But as with a lot of sites, this one has dissappeared, or at least I have not been able to get back to the site.

    So in answer to your question Hans, no, there is no model of the MD-520 or family

    Oh I see... Um, do you have the files sir? I think I can pencil-draw some modification parts from the OH-6 since it was the original model for this chopper...

    Thanks again sir!!!

    Howdy Guys,

    Ok, so I was reading this thread and said to myself, I said "self.......that doesnt look like too hard a model to create in my 3d program" (anim8or 3d free software at http://www.anim8or.com/ ) anyway.......after only about 3 minutes I was able to come up with this preliminary "sketch" of a major portion of the model, from just what I remember the hughes 500/MD 520 looked like.
    So, a model could probably be designed fairly easily by anyone who wants to try it. The free 3d program I mentioned above is compatible with both metasequioa and pepakura (for unfolding purposes).
    Anyway here is three (3) very fast minutes of work on the above program and a rough sketch of the helicopters main parts.

    I hope this inspires someone to have a go at it, I would but again, I have been working 12 and 14 hr days since last august. ( I know, ridiculous aint it? lol ). So I have provided something for ya'll to think about, go out there and design a "little bird".

    have a good day,

    greg aka GW

    Howdy Guys,

    Ok, unable to sleep and not wanting to mow the yard this evening, I decided to play with my anim8or 3d program abit more with the hughes 500/MD 520.
    As you all know, I am by no means a designer, I just "dabble". However, if any of you want to give this model a try, I do save my work so you could start with what I have.
    anyway, here is what I have done, I added the skids and the tail plane.

    Anyway, have a good evening,

    greg aka GW

    Hans,

    I found on the Air Squadron site, an Annex page
    http://kurukurupackn.hp.infoseek.co.jp/annex.htm

    this page has couple of OH-6/Md-500 Series helicopters, maybe these are a bit better.

    I am waiting on the S-70 helicopters to be released myself
