  1. blackhawk desert storm

    For an Operation Desert Storm (ODS, Gulf War 1, '90-'91) US Army Blackhawk, the first kit you showed (UH-60L) is the most appropriate to use. To make it a MedEvac Black Hawk, your best bet is to get the Warner's Wings UH-60 MedEvac conversion set and Black Hawk decals. You could use all the Cobra Company UH-60 Correction and Cockpit sets. All of the Cobra Company sets can be used on a more modern (Iraq or Afghanistan) Black Hawk. All of the figures you show are more modern for Iraq (since '03) or Afghanistan as well. Their vests and some other features are more modern than Operation Desert Storm.
  2. Confused about UH-1 kits

    KH's is the best in any scale. The Dragon (ex-Panda) UH-1D/H kit is pretty good. It has a few issues though. Here is some info on building/correcting it. Unfortunately, the pics are gone as is Cobra Company now. Lone Star Models bought the CC molds and stock and is now offering some of them. Revell's old 1/32 UH-1D/H is also pretty good, but also has a few issues that need to be fixed. And yes, 1/32 is close enough to 1/35 to work fine together. Lone Star models also has the older 1/32 CC sets as well. MRC/Academy's UH-1C kit is excellent. A top notch kit. For decals and some other resin upgrades, check out Werner's Wings as well: http://www.wernerswings.com/
  3. Minicraft 1/48 UH-60L questions

    I have no clue on the kit parts, but on the actual aircraft, the stab is the same on a UH-60A and a UH-60L. Both use the pointy, one-piece stab, like below.
  4. MH-60 Romeo

    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.
  5. 1/48 "What If" UH-1 "NAM" MEDEVAC

    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.
  6. 1/48 "What If" UH-1 "NAM" MEDEVAC

    It looks like it is supposed to be a UH-1B MedEvac, There was at least one in this configuration.
  7. 1/35th scale OH-58A/C

    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.
  8. Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale UH-1D Online Build

    Very nice so far. It is looking great.
  9. Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale UH-1D Online Build

    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.
  10. Looking great. The Werner's Wings MedEvac interior is highly recommended and comes out awesome.
  11. 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.
  12. Looking pretty good.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 1/48 Hughes 500D

    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.
