If it's a true AH-6 it should have a 4 blade head...

Before coming out with comments like this, it's always best to do your research!

Only 600N has 6-main blade and Notar

T-tail is 5-bladed; and optional quad tail rotor .... 4-bladed head with V-tail. The AH-6 is 4 .bladed. Coptercptn must have one in his museum. You should do more research on your first and only post.

Would you like to borrow my fingers as it takes more then one hand to count!
P.s.. What has the number of posts got to do with how many blades a helicopter has??!

Copertcptn and SydneyW...........It is common knowledge if you know the history of the Littlebird that the latest AH-6 has a six blade rotor-head. The AH-6 started off as the OH-6 Cayuse with a four blade rotor head and two blade tail. The helicopter has evolved into the M spec or 'MELB' which is now vastly different to the original configuration used in Vietnam. MELB stands for 'Mission enhanced little bird'. The M spec was especially designed for the 160th SOAR for special operations. Togehter with the increased lift and decreased noise from the six blade head, the engine has been uprated together with many modification to the airframe over a standard MD500. There are only 51 airframes in existence of the AH-6M. Gentleman..........If you have any doubts or wish to increase your knowledge about the little bird please contact the bellow link of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment at Fort Campbell Kentucky.

Hello, pilots are from eBay, yes it's a OF Helitechnic head. Most likely the best heads you can get, but very expensive.

Here is my new model - a CH-149 Cormorant, the canadian version of the AgustaWestland AW 101 Merlin. It flies with a mCPX.
