KX-72 Kestrel

KX-72 Kestrel

The Kestrel is a light assault helicopter armed with 4 machine guns and 2 air to air missiles. Most of the things I build are futuristic spacecraft. The Kestrel is an exception and uses only current technology. I built it during July of 98 and it was the only model I feel I actually got right the first time…

…So here I am, a year later, and I’ve decided I’ve never quite been happy with the landing gear setup. So, I redesigned it. The new landing gear is retractable and the Kestrel looks much better with the gear up. I also lengthened the rotor blades by two studs, modified the engines, and fixed a few structural problems (replacing multiple smaller pieces with single larger ones, reinforcing weak points, etc).
