Reedoak figures would set that off a treat.

They would need to be modified w/some different vest and a little different gear, but would look great.

 

Nemrod makes/made a USAF MH/HH-60G crew (35201) that includes a dor gunner hanging out the window.

from recent pics, it looks like USAF crews use now the same gear as the US Army, even in multicam instead of digital tiger stripes. However, I will certainly do the former version with CWU-27 flight overall. For the gunner, only waiting for the kit to be released...

Great news. How about some PJs too with Ops Core-type helmets?

Was thinking live resin will do those. Maybe I have a deeper look.

Maybe they will seeing as a current kit is hitting the shops? Either way the 1/35 helicopter modeller will get a detailed set of USAF Crew.

 

Norbert, I wish you'd do a RAF crew for the Chinook with MERT Paramedics in 1/35, can't see it happening though.

Those figures would work well for a 2001-2004 OEF/OIF HH-60G. 2011-current deployed crews wear the two piece flight suit, HGU-56/P, and an Eagle CIRACS vest.

Looking at the plastic parts, the Hawk got a lot of strenghtening plates installed over the time. Is there any chance to tell when were which installed ? As my focus is mainly in Gulf war 1991, I guess in that time they had none or a very small portion of them installed (as the airframes were quite new I guess). So if one wants to build 1991-era machine, there will be a lot of surgery to make it correct. Any ideas then ?

Thanks !

If you want to build an ODS-era HH-60G/MH-60G the Academy kit is pretty close. All that is really required is a couple of M130 flare buckets for the forward sponsons and you're there.

Hi, thanks for the response. I guess the new KH kit will be more detailed, but to backdate it to 1990-era will be a pain in the ... Is the Academy correct shape-wise ? So Academy kit + Eduard PE + Cutting Edge detail sets ? Thanks

No, it is not correct, and the HIRSS is totaly wrong. Out of that, many of us build it.

As Norbert says, the Academy kit is not perfect, but with some work, it can come out looking great.  The worst areas that you have to live with (short of major work) are the too blunt nose and the HIRSS that are at the wrong angle.  With some PE and some elbow grease, it can come out looking great.  It definitely looks like a Black Hawk when done and only those who really know about them can tell what is slightly off.  Depending on how the KH one builds up, you may still be able to backdate it though.  I would wait to see what it is like when it comes out.

yes, was thinking the same, maybe based on KH UH-60L, and take eduard UH-60A PE to help for the backdate, if the alpha IP is not inside the box...all difficult to say so long we do not have the kit in hands.

Hopefully eduard makes a big ed set for the KH kit, otherwise we'll have to use the old eduard PE.

Slight delay on the MH-60L, still this year but a few months later.   I noticed some issues and they are addressing them.  They needed to fix that now because they were easily doable.

The Irene decals came in today, so I'm ready for the kit. I'm glad to wait a few months for a more accurate kit though. It'll probably just sit on the shelf in the bedroom closet for a while anyway! Thank's for the update.

Impressive looking kit! Huge improvement over the Academy kit and hopefully the basis for a family of H-60s. 

 

Eta: I know they’ve been announced, but I have trust issues.

Shouldn't the chain gun be canted upwards slightly?

 

Maybe ever so slightly.  Easy to adjust during construction.

No, US Army (and USAF) H-60s do not have folding rotors like USN H-60s do.  They can be folded, but not easily and not automatically like USN H-60s can with a switch from within the cockpit.  For Army H-60s, each blade has to be manually folded by removing a couple bolts and adding a spacer (red pieces below) that secures the blade in the folded position at the blade root.

Specialized, auto-folding USN H-60 rotor head.  Very different than the "fixed" rotor head used on US Army and USAF Hawks.

They do plan on it for all the Navy variants.
