    1/35 KH MH-60L "Super 63"

    No, that's the KH MH-60L console. Tim

    The correct H-bar would have the crew chief seats facing outward toward the crew windows. Tim

    Anyone working on a KH 1/35 MH-60L correction set?

    As far as the life raft, yeah pretty much. I'm not a liberty to say anything about a detail set, maybe you can ask Floyd Werner. He might can help you.

    A little bit more work on the console. I added the parking brake handle and the chaff dispenser. Just waiting on some Archer rivets to make a circuit breaker panel and I'll be done. Tim

    160th SOAR Somalia era flight equipment pics

    Beretta 92's. Some aircrews carried mp5's while others carried variants of the M16. Tim

    Operation Gothic Serpent Aircraft references

    She had no nose radar at all and they took the FLIR off so it could be loaded onto the C-5 for transport home. Tim

    Love the hydraulic deck you've detailed up. Heck, I love all the detail you've created! What did you use for all the wiring? Tim

    Heck yeah, go for it. I'm getting tired of working 12 hour shifts rotating between days and nights. Been doing it for 12 1/2 years. Tim

    Oliver, I'm trying, but I have a screwed up work schedule that leaves me little time here and there for modeling. Tim

    Kitty hawk Blackhawk review online.

    Wernerswings has a UH-60 stencil set. If you buy the Irene set, it comes with stencils already. Just don't use any Somalia related decals. Cobra Company had a 160th SOAR markings decal sheet, but they're out of business now. Hopefully you can find them somewhere. HTH Tim

    100% sure. Verified by its crew chief. Must be the pic throwing you off. Tim

    Here's what I'm trying to model. This is a pic of Super 63 taken in Mogadishu. Tim

    1/35 KH MH-60L "Super 63"

    Finally after years of wanting to know information about my friend Joe Pascetti's bird he crewed down in Mogadishu-Super 63, I have been able to befriend many crew chiefs and pilots who were there and was given many pics of OGS and their MH-60L's. So tonight I finally started building it. First I had to correct the instrument panel and center console to represent close to what they looked like on the real MH-60L. The caution/advisory panel is located on the bottom left of the console on the real thing. KH's panel, though very nice, represents a later year panel and has the CA on the instrument panel itself. So I took and cut down and sanded the Academy part and shaved off the detail on the console and glued it in place. Next i shaved off the detail on the KH IP and replaced it with some PE detail parts from Airscale. That's it for now! Tim

    For a GS helo you'll need: 1) scratchbuild survival kits 2) 5 gal water cans 3) about 12 ammo cans (7.62) 4) life raft 5) correct H bar 6) correct instrument panel 7) hoist control stick 8)armor floor panels 9) scratchbuild special cargo hook setup 10) bare lower ESSS mounts with fairings removed I think that's it, but I might be leaving out some things.
