  1. I know it is a static display model, and we have had this discussion before. I just don't understand how you can put so much great scratch work into it and not portray it accurately. To each their own though.
  2. It looks ok, but the way you have built it, the tail would not fold. The dark rectangles and squares at the ends of the cable and to the right and left of the central hinge on the control cables are open spaces. This allows those pieces to retract into them so the two bulkheads can come together without any obstructions.
  3. These do look awesome. Are you hinting at something????? Pleeeaaase Academy!
  4. It depends on the boxing. The original boxes sent out to distributors did not have them. The later ones included them once the omission was pointed out. If you get one w/out them, contact Sofia Lynm at KH to get replacements sent to you. Sofia: sophialynm@gmail.com
  5. That is the control panel for the external hoist. The twisted cable goes to a hand-held joystick that the operator can hold to control the hoist while hanging/kneeling out the door for a better view.
  6. USMC and USN use the HGU-84/P helmets. Reedoak has them on walking/standing helo pilots, a couple seated crewmen, and as separate helmets, both w/and without visor covers. Reedoak
  7. Look here: http://aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=216895&page=1 All the info you could want on Op Gothic Serpent Black Hawks.
  8. Looks like it is starting out well. I'll keep an eye on this one.
  9. No, only Super 63, the Command and Control (C&C) aircraft, did so they would have a longer loiter time. For more Op Gothic Serpent-specific info, check out this thread: http://aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=216895&page=1
  10. 1/48 Kitty Hawk. Box says D, but it can also be built as an H. Pic on boxtop is an H as well. Review: https://modelingmadness.com/scott/viet/previews/kittyhawk/kh80154.htm A few here have built is as well. It has a couple issues, but nothing that is a show stopper.
  11. The Academy UH-60A/L kit is an A model out of the box (L has wider fairings under pilots' doors). It will get you close, but the new Kitty Hawk MH-60L kit is much more detailed and complete, minus a couple A/L model specific parts.
  12. Yes, but it would take some parts not included in the kit. The biggest is the standard, pointy stabilator. The CBP helo is a UH-60L as opposed to an MH-60L which uses the square, folding stabilator. Werner's Wings has the platypus nose FLIR mount. You would have to source the nightsun from somewhere. I believe one comes in some of the Revell 1/32 German helo kits. You would also need to backdate the IP from an MH model with multi-function displays to an L model with all gauges.

  13. You're right, it does. I hadn't seen that. They should be easy to turn 90 degrees by filling the holes and drilling new ones. Usually, there is an "H" bar there that the gunners' seats attach to, as in the Academy kit (part D5, step 3). Hmm, Kitty Hawk doesn't have this. With the seats attached below. You can see the "H" bar in this pic. Even with the seats turned rearward, there should be bars on the ceiling to attach them to. These look to be another detail to add.
