  1. The nose shouldn't be too hard to either scratchbuild or 3d print. The FLIR should be easy to 3d print. Tim
  2. I thought the SH-60F, but apparently the HH-60H is a better starting place for the Jayhawk. Tim
  3. Be careful what you wish for cause you might just get what you're asking for very shortly!!! Wink, Wink!!! Tim
  4. Navy hawks----YAWN!!! Bring on the MH-60M! Tim
  5. Slowly I'm chugging along! So tonight I decided to build up and paint the exhausts for the MH-60L. I first painted the rear half Vallejo Model Air 77713 and the front half Vallejo Model Air 77703. For the burnt area in the middle, I used Tamiya Weathering Set D "Burnt Red". I've never used the sets before and man do I love them for weathering. Tim
  6. I understand why you did it, but now when the wife uses my phone next time, I'll guess I'm gonna have to explain why there's a half naked lady on my modeling page. I'm a preacher, so you'll have to just understand!!! Tim
  7. No, just that it wasn't Somalia. They had big shipping containers in around the front of the hangar to protect them from mortar attacks. No containers in that pic. Tim
  8. I was told by a OGS pilot that the pic wasn't of Somalia. Tim
  9. Just wondering if this airframe was 1 of 2 that was flying around in Mogadishu??? Food for thought Tim
  10. Good article on the Block 3 LB. https://www.google.com/amp/s/defence-blog.com/news/boeing-upgrades-special-operations-unique-helicopter.html/amp Tim
  11. Go to secretprojects.co.uk Click on new posts Click on forum subject about bin laden chopper Go to last page about midway down There's a big discussion about the new MH-47G toy in the pic. Might be and it might not be true, but a good read nonetheless Tim
  12. Huh, never seen a boomless/hoistless MH-47 before! Tim
  13. Great start on her Gino. How was the fuselage fit? Did you glue the sidewalls to the fuselage sides again? Tim
  14. No, that's definitely not it. We'll probably never see the real thing. The 160th did say, that the zero dark thirty helicopters were a pretty good representation of the real thing. So the film's birds are somewhat close at least. Tim
  15. Patience young skywalker!!! Tim
  16. I've been working with Reskit about some stuff and more is planned. At least the reskit pieces have the bridge and flight control rods. And what do the rods connect to??? Hmmm, we'll see!!! Tim Tim
  17. Ok. Trying to figure out the best way to paint it without using straight black. I've had some guys say 50/50 NATO black and Helo drab. Tim
  18. Thanks Jorge. What color are you using to paint your MH-60L? Tim
  19. About what pressure? How do you clean the airbrush afterwards? Tim
  20. What's the secret for spraying MRP paints? Tim
  21. Fozzy, you've done lost your mind!!! Absolutely mind-blowingly good detail that I could NEVER even try! (I don't like yogurt either!!!) Tim
  22. Now the Testors MM line is being discontinued, there goes the Helo drab that's been my go to paint for Army helos. Has anyone used the new AK interactive helo drab? If so, is it any good and post pics if you've got them showing the new paint on the helo. Tim
  23. Come across this pic a few days ago of the NOTAR test helo of the 160th. I can't make out the serial # on the cowling. Tim
