HH-60G Pave Hawk, S/N 89-26209, 33rd Rescue Squadron at Kadena Air Base, Japan Kit: Kitty Hawk KH50006 Scale: 1:35 Decals: Werner's Wings Pavehawks Combat Rescue Pt 1 and 2 + few kit decals GAU-18s: Live Resin LRE-35333 Seat belts: Eduard Paints: Mostly Hataka C-series including Gunship Gray plus MRP, Tamiya, Gunze, Life Color, Vallejo, MM An additional MH-60L sprue G has been purchased to get FRIES. Comments: Pictures taken with DSRL in a light tent (5700K LEDs) except few taken outdoors which have slightly blueish background. I will likely do another session outdoors soon because the gunship grey looks better in daylight and it’s easier to fit the whole aircraft in the frame. Overall the kit came together pretty nicely except the fuselage halves. Next time (MH-60L) I will sand the cockpit/cabin walls at the very beginning and dry fit. There are some instruction errors but easy to catch. More pictures on Pbase and Flickr https://pbase.com/danwolo/hh60g_final https://www.flickr.com/photos/97358250@N06/with/49880664952/
I am trying to understand how the fast rope is secured where it is not used or just before it is used. There are multiple pictures on the web with the rope being attached to tank or somewhere to the ceiling but exact attachement is mostly in the shadow and barely visible. I do not mean FRIES. Any help appreciated.
I have a question for the H-60 experts out there. I have noticed there are/were a few different transmission drain hose setups on H-60s. My question is, are they different due to aircraft type (MH-60L vs MH-60G), or over time (one hose is older, or three hoses are older, etc.), or is there some other reason for the variation? The first is on a USAF MH-60G with three drain hoses coming off the transmission drip pan. This pic shows all three going to the aft of the aircraft. I have also seen the two forward ones going forward to each outside C pillar as on this Army UH-60A. The next is a US Army MH-60L that only has one drain hose going aft.
