  1. You want some criticism....here's some criticism for ya'.....it looks too damn good! Now take that! :jaw-dropping: Superior workmanship there Jorge. Pete Brown
  2. But of course! I heard the guy who did the original artwork is quite talented!
  3. A few of you may have seen my 1/35 UH-60A MEDEVAC that I finished last year. (It actually won a 1st Place at an IPMS show/contest..Woo-Who!) http://s362974870.onlinehome.us/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=228847&st=0&p=2182985&hl=medevac&fromsearch=1entry2182985 I kind of like the look of military MEDEVAC helicopters. So, I haven't had a lot of time to hobbytize lately, but I have been working on this project here and there. The kit is the Academy 1/48 UH-60A with the assistance of (Floyd) Werner's Wings 1/48 MEDEVAC Interior and UH-60 Blackhawk Decal Sets. I haven't been too concerned about ultimate accuracy or super-detailing the cabin fuselage insides (they look a little rough I know), or the cockpit since a lot of the view will be obstructed. The fire extinguishers are made from sprue. I threw some bags in the cabin from Black Dog Resin Kits, and made a water cooler. (Gets hot out in the desert!) Detailed the crew chief seats with some Eduard PE seat belts, and the rear folded seats belts with masking tape. I made a couple extra stretchers for the carousal, which was pinned top and bottom, so it rotates. One of our forum associates here, Ed Page, was kind enough to supply me with a couple pilot figures (thanks again Ed). Had to do a little plastic surgery to make their legs reach the pedals. The doors will be closed, so you won't be seeing too much of these guys. I used a few of Eduard's MH-60G pre-painted PE items in the cockpit area. A little wiring was done behind the IP, again not super-detailed because it won't be very visible. I'm about ready to close it up, so I'll post more pics when I get s'more done. The Werner's Wings set is awesome! Hats off to Joe and Floyd! Pete Brown
  4. WOW...I didn't know bringing up this question would be so controversial! All very interesting though! I am learning a whole lot here! They'll be very impressed with my "amassed knowledge" the next time I do work at the base! (ha-ha) Pete
  5. Sounds good to me! Thanks Spongebob! Jennings, only you could come up with an answer like that! :)
  6. I was working in Klamath Falls (Oregon) today. Several OANG F-15's were flying around, about 10 or so. When they circling around, doing their individual approaches to land, I could here a (best I can describe) loud chirping sound, like a bird chirping. It came from each jet as he made the turn to the approach. They were probably at 300-400 feet above me. (I was on top of a Big 5 Sporting Goods building) Does anyone know what that sound would be? Thanks, Pete Brown

  8. This is an ever so slightly modified 1/35 kit from Warriors I did several years ago. A couple of these were made for some specific people, and a few others for some fire stations, which they display in their lobbies. I do not consider myself to be a figure painter by any stretch of the imagination. But this is where I thought I would post my small tribute of remembrance. Pete
  9. It's looking real sharp there Phil!
  10. E-mail sent Thank you Sir! If anyone else has some more, I will relieve you of them. Pete
  11. I definitely agree that the Cobra Company detail set is a must to make a really nice Jayhawk. The Skunkmodels Jayhawk kit is essentially the same as the Italeri HH-60H Rescuehawk, but it does have (some) very useful "J" items included. Skunkmodels has a nice PE rescue basket, and some clear styrene pilot doors (if you want the doors closed...if you want them open use the Cobra Company doors) How much detail do you want and how much $ do you want to spend? If you really want to trick it out: This what I used on mine. - Italeri HH-60H Rescue Hawk (but you'll need and an SH-60 engine cover thingy..so as I mentioned, use the Skunkmodels HH-60J kit) - Cobra Company detail set - Cobra Company F.L.I.R. (if the one you're doing has one) - Cobra Company SH-60 PE set - Eduard interior and exterior SH-60 PE sets - Fireball Modelworks decal set - Model Alliance decal set: US Coast Guard Choppers Pt.II - M-240 machine gun from Black Dog Resins (if you're doing a MH-60J) Don't forget to relocate the Port side APU exhaust as Italeri has it in the wrong place. And, install the antenna wire on the Starboard fuselage. Here are some crappy photos of mine. I'm gonna re-shoot it with better lighting effects someday. http://s362974870.onlinehome.us/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=249441&st=0&p=2370879&hl=hh-60j&fromsearch=1entry2370879 There are a lot of good photo references out there too. Here's one of the better ones. http://kerns.smugmug.com/gallery/2320945_9EkfD#121386601 Good luck on your project, Pete
  12. Yep, I think those are the same ones in the Huey kit. Can you email me, and discuss the details? petebrown@clearwire.net Thanks, Pete
  13. Do you guys know if anyone makes 1/48 engine intake particulate filters like the ones on this MH-60S? I know CC has 1/35. Thanks, Pete
