Awesome.  I can't wait to see these come to fruition.  An updated H-60 is great.

...question can this be turn or build as one of the Battle of Mogadishu" Black Hawks?

 

Yes, with a little work and swapping out guns and a few other parts.

Not a UH-60 expert, wondering if there are any issues with the current 35th scale kits?  Only thing I remember reading about was that they had something wrong with the exhaust geometry.   Aside from that, I thought they were pretty well regarded.

As a former UH-60A Crew Chief, the Academy 1/35 scale kits suck in regards to detail, fit, and accuracy. In 1/48th, the Minicraft kit also sucks for the same reasons.  I haven't tried the 1/48 Italeri UH-60, but the Italeri SH-60 was not that bad.  If you are not as intimately familiar with the H-60s, then its  just some fit issues to overcome but they can come out looking pretty cool.  You just have to work at it a bit...

 

Just my humble opinion.

Ditto! I like Ramon was an ex crew chief and let's start, shall we. Exhausts are totally shaped wrong, APU exhaust opening is in the wrong place, no pitot tube mounting "bumps", the fuselage contours near the tailboom section are way off, nose is misshapen, no cockpit floor chin bubble structures, pilot's seats don't set down in the stroke wells, H-bar is wrong, no camber to the tail pylon camber fin, rotorhead is pitiful, no rotating scissor assemblies, instrument panel interfering with the windshield, whole cockpit lacks proper detailing, gaps everywhere around the cabin, no broom closets on the crew cabin walls. 

And that's just off the top of my head!

To that end then, I'll probably use the Academy one as a practice build/ None OEF detail, and then hopefully the Kittyhawk release provides for a better build so I can add the detail I want.

I'm assuming this is about the Academy kit.  Part of the issue is that the aircraft is squished along the water line which throws things off.

Yes, I'm talking about the Academy kit.

Oh my oh my!!! This is pure awesomeness. I cant wait to see how it turns out. Love the idea that we will have another hawk in the big scale. I wish the can release also the army versions and why not the navy ones too. 

Thank you Kitty Hawk for listening. Now please you may follow with an Apache in 1/35, and obviously the 1/35 Huey!! 

Keep em coming! 

 

Rod.

I think last week I saw a Facebook post from Kittyhawk asking about underside picture references for Sh-60Bs and MH-60Rs...

Please consider doing the USN H-60's in 1/48.

 

Here is a USN MH-60S medevac with the EIBF and C/F dispensers. USN photo.

These were found online but forgot where so unable to give proper credit.

MH-60R found on the USN web page.

The MH-60R had two different C/F dispensers. This is the early type.

Here is the later C/F dispenser which is the same as on the MH-60S.

Here are the different types of C/F dispensers on the MH-60R. Both are from the Olimp 1/48 MH-60R and MH-60S resin sets.

The early type is on the right. The one on the left is more commonly seen now and also on the MH-60S.
