Best H-60 variant in 1/48

Recommended Posts

hey guys - what are my options for H-60 variants in 1/48 scale? Preferably a HH/MH variant with fuel probe, FLIR, etc. 

 

Let me know, thanks as always!!

alright, did a little more research... two front runners right now are the Italeri MH-60K or the SH-60B.  Leaning towards the MH-60K but I do like the blade fold option on the SH...

Hi Sean,

I must say I am by no means a specialist on the Black/ Pave/ Ocean/ Sea Hawk helicopters, but I have built both 1:48 Italeri and Minicraft Black Hawks and Pave Hawks. All builds went ok, but the detail on the Italeri imho is better.

I remember the troop seats on the Minicraft kit were completely wrong: four straight down legs on every seat, looked like a '50s kitchen interior. On the other hand: I didn't like the Italeri frontal glazing, which has quite an unusual parts break up.

 Somehow I cannot help thinking that this subject must have been on the formum before, with so many '60 connaisseurs here. Have you tried a forum search?

HTH,:cheers:

thanks for the response! I'm leaning toward an Italeri kit...

 

And yes, I broke the all-forum golden rule of posting before searching... once I posted I did some more research.  Thanks again!

Hopefully the new series of Blackhawk derivative models will be coming soon....
