Hughes OH-6 Cayuse

The Hughes OH-6 Cayuse (nicknamed "Loach", after the requirement acronym LOH—Light Observation Helicopter) is a single-engine light helicopter with a four-bladed main rotor used for personnel transport, escort and attack missions, and observation. Hughes Helicopters also developed the Model 369 as a civilian helicopter, the Hughes Model 500, currently produced by MD Helicopters as the MD 500.

The above is an illustration that I created in my spare time, which was based on a heavily mapped 3D model, which was built from reference images that I shot at an air museum. This time I wanted to illustrate an aircraft that better fit my 1960's illustration style.

Below are some tests shots and wireframe views of the model meshes.
