    Academy MH 60 S Helicopter 1/35 scale/

    Yes it is the M240. Here is another image. https://www.alamy.com/stock-image-us-navy-naval-air-crewman-daniel-mills-assigned-to-helicopter-anti-162958103.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=FA0A74D2-7819-475D-BF61-47AC0B31F801&p=547080&n=0&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26pn%3d1%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d2%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26npgs%3d0%26qt%3dnaval%20air%20crewman%26qt_raw%3dnaval%20air%20crewman%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tbar%3d1%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26groupid%3d%26pseudoid%3d%26a%3d%26cdid%3d%26cdsrt%3d%26name%3d%26qn%3d%26apalib%3d%26apalic%3d%26lightbox%3d%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26xstx%3d0%26simid%3d%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d1%26nu%3d%26t%3d%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3d%26cap%3d1%26cbstore%3d1%26vd%3d0%26lb%3d%26fi%3d2%26edrf%3d%26ispremium%3d1%26flip%3d0%26pl%3d

    The MH-60S uses the same mounts as the US Army H-60's. They can be found from Live Resin. Here is a link to Live Resin. Scroll down to LRE 35169 and LRE 35171. The Live Resin site shows some 3D images of how the M240 mounts to the window. For 35171 the mount that holds the M240 is different though but everything else is the same. For what you need LRE 35169 will work. http://live-resin.com/h-w.html Here are the two different mounts. First photo shows the one same as LRE 35169 and second photo shows same window mount as on LRE 35171 but the M240 mount is different.
  3. Looking to trade for some Dragon/Zvezda 1/35 BMP-2D/E parts. Looking for the side skirts, side body armor and the curved armor plate on the back of the turret along with the associated attachment parts. I already have the Zvezda BMP-2 kit, I just need the extra armor parts to upgrade to the 2D version if anyone has them to spare. Thanks for looking. Also looking for Skif 1/35 MT-LB parts. Looking for the 2 rear doors and 4 upper hull hatch covers. My FS/FT list can be found here http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/283315-fs-135-148-kits-books-and-more/&
  4. Your Su-33 UBK is coming along great. China is making a 2 seat J-15 as the J-15S so hoping Hobby Boss makes one in 1/48. I am not as brave as you when it comes to kit bashing at your level. The forward swept wing Su-33 looks cool. That would be even cooler as a 2 seat version. The Hasegawa kit you saw was probably the Macross YF-19. I think you should keep the vertical stabs in the original position but angle them outwards more. Did you ever finish the 1/48 F-CK-1C forward swept wing what if?

  6. Prefer to keep it CONUS as I have no Paypal. If trading we each pay our own shipping. Contact, ttwng32 at aol dot com My FS/FT items can be found here Looking to trade for TWO complete sets of Tamiya 1/32 M61A1 Vulcan cannons and magazine/drums from the F-4E if no one used them and have them as spares.

    This photo shows the top color darker. Look at the difference in color between the two arrows. You can follow the darker line to the front of the housing where it meets the top cabin windows. The nose is also painted in FS35237 as seen in this photo of an MH-60R. You can see the ALQ/ESM is a lighter color than the nose. This SH-60B also shows the different top color. Note that the ALQ/ESM is a lighter color than the nose. An MH-60S showing the darker color on the top housing and nose. The darker FS35237 on the nose ends at the avionics bay panel line and the lighter FS36320 is just under it. You can also see the much lighter FS36495 on the bottom of the MH-60S in the background. You can see the FS35237 on this HH-60H. Another MH-60R showing the darker FS35237. And another MH-60S.

    There are definitely three colors. Here is a bottom view showing FS36495. Here are a couple views of the top showing FS35237. You can see the demarcation line from FS35237 to FS36320.
  9. I don't own any Aires products for the Monogram or Academy F-14's so I can't comment on that. I thought I read though that Aires usually reboxes their items. If they initially made the burner cans for Hasegawa, they will rebox them and just print Academy or Hobby Boss on the package. I know they did that with cockpit sets. If Aires made the burner cans specifically for the Academy kit they should fit the Monogram with no problems. Aires also makes a really nice cockpit set for the Academy F-14A. I don't know if it is just a rebox though from the Hasegawa set.
