great build and I love the very subtle weathering. Just one question, although it's nothing to do with the build, does the cabin door always remain in the open position as I noticed it had a piece cut out to fit over the ??FLIR or what ever that thing is?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Rich for the comments

The main cabin door has a collapsible section that allows the open door to straddle the pylon. When the door is closed the collapsible section returns to its proper position and fills the hole. At least that's how I understand it.

Hey Pappy

I get my MV Lenses from Sprue Bros in the US - great service and good range in stock. I've never had a lot of luck finding anyone in Oz that keeps a good range. I have got some from Casula Hobbies in Sydney before.

I used

LS17 3.3mm for the L/R nose Searchlights

L116 2.9mm for the nose centre landing light

LS25 2.0mm for the light amidships near the cargo hook and RAST

I didn't use any for the beacons on this one - they are painted.

Glad you liked it - this one took more patience than I usually have. :blink:

Thanks to all the others for their kind words as well. :taunt:

Wow! that is a nice looking Seahawk. Paint and weather is very good. Makes me want to build one myself. :coolio:

Im jealous, very nicely done, but I would like to know how you did the cabin window, and have a blank panel on the other side.

Your helo looks like the MH-60R.

Thanks Stanton, but I'm not quite sure of your question? All the clear parts are from the kit, although some like the front windows are modified. If you mean how did I remove the Sonabuoy lanch panel then I cut it out with a scriber and filled in the hole with plastic card.

I don't think I have answered your question ?? can you be more specific.

I clearly missed this when you first posted it, but that has to be one of the nicest helicopter models I've ever seen. The paint and details alone make it stand out but as an overall build it's just exceptional.

Well thanks David. :D

I got a lot of satisfaction out of this build, but I won't be doing another one of those anytime soon :) .

Thanks again David and others for the positive comments.
