  1. Yup. Here are the UH-60A/L directions too. https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/0/7/8/107078-68-instructions.pdf
  2. Yes, you have all the standard H-60 exterior parts in the kit. The only difference is the mission equipment sprues. The UH-60A/L kit has an "L" sprue w/the interior seats, external ESSS wings, and aux tanks. The MH-60G has a "G" sprue with the Pave Hawk-specific parts. Here is one I did a few years ago. https://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/16/t/141513.aspx
  3. It is more of an issue with USCG not having (nor wanting) any aerial tankers. The aux tanks usually provide enough range from the coast for their operational needs. MH-60J/Ts are not usually stationed on cutters, but from on-shore CGASs.
  4. This may help. It looks to be about 6 inches of in-flight drop to me. Did you notice no pilots in the left hand pic? Interestingly enough, it is from a DARPA test of an unmanned Black Hawk. https://theaviationist.com/2022/02/10/lets-talk-about-the-first-unmanned-flight-for-uh-60-black-hawk-in-optionally-piloted-configuration/
  5. They can refuel Pumas, so I would assume they could do the same with Chinooks.
  6. The link in your post is still active, so you should be able to still order them from Shapeways.
  7. Looking good so far. It should be an interesting layout once complete.
  8. The 1/35 kit is pretty nice. They do a good job with 1/35 helicopters. Review: https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/tru/kit_tru_5101.shtml Built up (not mine). More here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235069593-135-trumpeter-mi-4-in-soviet-arctic-colors/
  9. I soldered one up when I did a scratch/conversion back in '08. It was a PITA, but doable. Here is my take on an MH-60J back then: https://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/16/t/103483.aspx Now I have the KH HH-60H, WW set, and above mentioned printed basket (which is very nice) to build the yellow MH-60T. I'll get to it soon.
  10. This is coming along nicely. Good job on the interior details. Here is more to think about for adding the rescue basket to the interior. https://www.flightlineengineering.com/item_35_rescue_basket_folded.html
  11. Looking great. The cockpit looks awesome.
  12. Looks like you are off to a good start. I would recommend starting your own separate post on the build though. They could get lost in this tread.
  13. There are lots of times you will see Black Hawks and Apaches, etc. flying overhead of Abrams and other ground elements. He is looking for when they would be on the ground together, which is very rare.
