Hi,

Help, please.

I am looking for photos of the gun carried on the Knighthawk. I am planning to add one in the window but cant find tight shots on the internet only wide shots.  Thanks

The MH-60S uses the same mounts as the US Army H-60's. They can be found from Live Resin. Here is a link to Live Resin. Scroll down to LRE 35169 and LRE 35171. The Live Resin site shows some 3D images of how the M240 mounts to the window. For 35171 the mount that holds the M240 is different though but everything else is the same. For what you need LRE 35169 will work.

Here are the two different mounts. First photo shows the one same as LRE 35169 and second photo shows same window mount as on LRE 35171 but the M240 mount is different.

The gun with the spade grips is an M240D.  It is available from Live-Resin and on Shapeways from a couple different designers.

You can try Sprue Brothers, they may carry it. Check out ,https://models-hobby.com, that's who carries all the Live Resin stuff. It too is a Russian company. I've bought quite a few things from them and nothing funny has happened so far.

I have ordered directly from Yaroslav (owner of Live-Resin and Models-Hobby) many times and have had no issues.  He is great to deal with.  They are also on eBay.

Last pieces of the puzzle.

Now I can finish this build.

Live resin products are beautifully made but so tricky to work with. The resin is so brittle and requires a mini saw to cut the pieces from the pour stubs. Do not use sprue cutter one the parts, they will brea,k. I had to reinforce the parts with small brass rods since i changed the design and folded the gun in a down position. I will prime in grey then use gun metal to paint them.
