Blackhawk M240 Door Gun Questions


Recommended Posts

Starting the initial research for converting the KH MH-60S to an Army OIF UH-60L.   I don't believe the KH kit offers the dual M240's and their door mounts, so I was thinking about using the very nice looking Live Resin sets.  https://live-resin.com/h-w/182-lre35169-uh60-black-hawk-window-m240h-mount-for-academy-2192-1-35-uh-60l-black-hawk,-italeri-6430-1-35-uh-60a-l-black-hawk-models.html

Anyone use this set?  Any feedback on it would be appreciated.

 

I've seen pics of M240's fitted with the brass collector underneath but also many pics show this removed.   What would be accurate for a 2007 time period OIF Blackhawk?   Same question applies to any optics or sighting gear.  

 

Thanks in advance,

 

John

That should work. No optics or anything on the weapon since gunners walk the rounds onto the target rather than "aiming" per se. The only accessory would be a PEQ-2 or PEQ-15 on the side of the forward rail assembly.

That is the correct set and is a great set.  The mount and guns look awesome.  Either way is correct for the shell bag.  It is really up t unit SOP.

Thanks for the good info guys.   Where does one buy Live Resin bits?   Sprue Brothers doesn't carry this particular set, only ones I could find were from an E-bay seller out of Hong Kong.   Any other options?

Models-hobby.com is actually in the Russia area. Yaroslav is the main guy and I've never had any issues from him and his website.

Should be good to go!

Ordered direct from them, just received it.   Given that It was coming all the way from Russia, I'm very happy with their service.
