KH HH-60G Pave hawk build

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, long time for me here without posting , so i decided to finish 2019 with this build, it will be a OOB build and i will add 7 figures from Live Resin and the gunners seatbelts from Eduard.

As always i will start with the cockpit and the main cabin, KH did an amazing work on detailing the inside of this bird

Wow.... that's some impressive work so far!  

 

Does Eduard give you enough belts for all the troop seats or just the gunner and CE?

continuing with the build, after closing the fuselage i continued with the top side, engines and transmission housing, engine cowlings will be closed because i am after a helo that is almost ready to launch in a CSAR mission

i started painting the front part of the helo, people always ask me why i paint my model in sections?, i dont have a exact answer, what i know is it works for me, 🙂 , and it helps me to get different shades of the main color on the model so i can break the monotony of a uniform color all around the model, specially in a model this size

Wow!! That is one impressive -60!  Are you using oils to highlight the painting?  It is looking fantastic!

Wow!

 

The figures they put in these kits are outstanding! Just the figures that came with the Little Bird I got were almost worth the price of the kit.

Amazing paintwork.   What are you using for the Gunship Grey and the gloss cost?

i am using gunship gray from MRP paint, i am not using any gloss clear coat, the paint leaves a satin finish good enough for decal placement

Much need for filler or modifications? Looks like a nice build.
