Boxart for a Pave Hawk is out too. Hopefully both versions will be available soon.

...I can only point out some slight problem on these test shot photos.

1) the engine intake cover is a piece of sheet metal that works very well as an IR shield The front and back of the shield is open to allow air to get into the Aux intakes. This is the only glaring error I can see on this model.



I'm not following here. Are you saying the engine intake covers are too thick? How about a comparison pic to clarify?

Sitting about 60 feet away from a UH/MH-60M, which to the eye of the beholder looks like a H-60L, I can only point out some slight problem on these test shot photos.

1) the engine intake cover is a piece of sheet metal that works very well as an IR shield The front and back of the shield is open to allow air to get into the Aux intakes. This is the only glaring error I can see on this model.

2) The model hatches look correct. Really.

3) the exhausts... Nice...very... but even the L's are switching to the Up-thrust "Toilet Bowel" exhausts. Those EAPS exhausts are REAL Drag inducers.

It is looking awesome so far. I can't wait for this to become available. I will be getting a few.



I don't know.

It seems like a Hasegawa Raptor style kit with very exagerated fuselage detail. I am not aware that the Blackhawk has such prominent hatches in the fuselage?

This does not apeal to me, too unrealistic
