  1. Here is my 1/35 MH-60J build, which is basically the same as a USN MH-60R. It takes a bit of scratch work, but can come out looking awesome. USCG MH-60J: http://www.aeroscale.co.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=2653 Good luck on it.
  2. As stated above, C models were not MedEvacs. Additionally, a Medevac would not have the ammo box in it either, too much weight. A nice looking build, but it would look much better w/out the red crosses and added guns/rockets as a 1 CAV gunship.
  3. It looks like it is supposed to be a UH-1B MedEvac, There was at least one in this configuration.
  4. Where did you find the high gear from? I would like to get a set as well as the gear is one of the biggest issues of the kit.
  5. Very nice so far. It is looking great.
  6. The raised area is supposed to represent the Velcro that is also present. It may be a bit exaggerated, but is not really incorrect. You can see the raised area on the removable piece below in the same position.
  7. Looking great. The Werner's Wings MedEvac interior is highly recommended and comes out awesome.
  8. Looks really nice. Good job on the paint and finish. To me, the base is about 2 times as large as it needs to be though. It dwarfs the helicopter.
  9. Looking pretty good.
  10. I guess the "cut-out" on the back side of the rotor opening is more of a scoop, which makes it hard to see in pics. The support for the HIRSS looks good. Nice job so far.
  11. Why did you cut a notch out of the fuselage where the rotor shaft goes through it, above? I have never seen any UH-60L this way. All the ones I have seen have a complete circle there. I believe the notch is only on the latest UH-60Ms with UES.
  12. I have heard this too, but have never seen one that has any shade of green to it. From everyone I have talked to and any I have seen, it is flat black. It fades quickly to a chalky black/gray color and weathers heavily.
  13. Looking good. One issue with the Tamiya kit (among many) is the top troop hatch being molded 180 degrees around. The curved strap to the lock mechanism is molded on the lower part of the hatch, but should be on the upper part. This is how the hatch is pulled closed and how it locks/unlocks. If you cut the hinges off and turn it around 180 degrees, it will be correct. You can see it in the below pic in the proper position.
  14. Looks good for your fist time using sheet styrene. A few comments on it. First, it is too short. It should come up to the same height as the bulkhead behind the seats. Look at the height in the pic from above. It also looks too deep (front to rear). Remember, you still have to fit the weapons plank in front of it. Lastly, it should not have a "N" registration number on it. "N" numbers are only for civilian aircraft.
