MH-60 Romeo

6 posts in this topic

My nephew just graduated from the Naval Academy and the resulting flight school and just got his assignment as an aviator in the MH-60R.  I know that Academy has a MH-60S, but does anyone have

a 60R kit or conversion parts for one?

 

Thanks

I believe Olimp has a conversion for the 1/72 hobby boss kit

What size model are you wanting to build? You mentioned the Academy MH-60S, so i assume you're talking about the 1/35th scale.

I don't know of a MH-60R conversion kit, but a modeler here named HeavyArty did a Coast Guard MH-60 awhile back and they are similar so he can probably help you.

Thanks Tim,

 

Yeah, I was looking towards a 1/35 scale bird.

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.

Good luck on it.
