  1. The NightRaid should have the Terrain Following/Avoidance Radar for the nose, the upswept pylons for the aux tanks, in-flight refueling probe, M60 guns and some smaller RWR-sensors.

     

     

    Ahmmm.... Just checked: I was talking about the "Night Hawk"-kit, which is this: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/italeri-190-mh-60k-night-hawk--128231

    It has all the goodies mentioned above.

     

    With "NightRaid" you meant this kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/italeri-1328-uh-60-black-hawk--137951

     

    So you are right, they are exactly the same. Sorry.

  2. The TR-1A by Special Hobby is one of their earlier short-run-kits and can not be compared with their latest releases. Anyway, it´s still the best TR-1 in town and I was lucky to get one by a fellow modeller.

    The cockpit is in Resin and nicely detailed.

    With some painting skill you can get a decent result!

    I drilled the holes into the fuselage to allow for some reinforcements for the wing-montage.

    The aircraft is quite big with the mounted wings!

    I planted a nice forest of antennas on the belly and one of the wing-pods:

    The pilot also took a seat:

    Woaaah, black as the night!

    Matt black 8 of Revell. After seeing this really nice black I decided to put the decals directly on the aircraft (and without a clear coat). This worked like a charm.

    I put some matt coat (Vallejo) directly on the decals to keep the deep black. Under sunlight of course the effect fades a little bit.

    Since this TR-1A will loiter in my office over my desk I didn´t put on the gear.

    The clear parts are made of blister, and I was quite happy to get this rather complicated thing on my first try.

    A little resin-chip unfortunately showed up AFTER I had closed the canopy.

    Lots of wing span, this can´t be kept at home.

    This aircraft was used as a "Scud-Sniffer" in the 1991 Gulf War.

    Enough antennas for all TV and radio-stations! 😉
