Default 450 size OH-6 Defender(MD530) with short skids?

I like the MD500 series bodies for the 450 size helis, but they all have the tall skids and I want to create OH-6 version with rocket pods and the shorter skids for my Belt-CP. No one has one including Heliartist.

I believe the civilian and military bodies are the same?... I guess I can fab up some scale "lower" skids to get that look of the OH-6 I suppose. Maybe cut down the skids yo uget with the heliartist 450 MD500E kit?... I'l get the white version and do the paint myself.

The rocket pods are another problem..hmmmm.


I'm not going for super scale, but want my little 450 to be very convincing at about 10 foot away in the air. All the "key" features I want to stand out..dark windows to hide electronics..ect ect..

Here is my Trex 500 with a Heliartist fuselage. I custom airbrushed it and made my own weapons system. I have a complete build on HELIFREAK with a video.
