Trying to build a US UH-60A from Desert Storm I'm unable to find any comparison (or even a single review) of various 1/72 Black Hawk kits avilable on the market. What are your opinions? Have you ever compared the UH-60A by Hasegawa, Fujimi, Revell, Hobbycraft, Italeri/Tamiya and HobbyBoss? Is really the 1970s vintage Hasegawa still the best 1/72 option on the market? Cheers Michael

Hello everyone, i found a photos on Google that there are Uh-60 in Camouflage scheme and its used in Operation Desert Storm, 1991 and only 1 photo of this heli. So i thought that i will go for it. This kit is from Academy and very straight foward build. I'm also have this build video in my channel, you guys can check it out. Link is in my signature. For the color, well this is the hardest part, I'm using Mr.color C39 for the main color and mix some whitte to create highlight. It's nots as close as the photos so i add some red to the C39 , highly diluted the mixture and tint the whole model. HEre is the finished model.

Hello everybody I have been away from modelling for some time now and I’ve been a silent reader on britmodeller.com during the last three years – thanks everybody for the inspiration ;-) As a rotorhead I built every major helicopter in my time – except a Blackhawk, what a shambles. Now I am so softened up by all the splendid builds around here, have a bit time on my hands and decided to catch up on this wonderful and ubiquitous bird. I decided to do it as a Hoverama : a hovering Blackhawk with a slingload underneath, suspended in a display cabinet. I took loads of inspiration from all over the web. This is just one of the examples of rather intense videos of the whole process : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTEdjADUbJc . The whole thing is planned to be a pleasure build. So no rivet-counting, no realistic paint-scheme, no consistent decals – just a lot of artistic freedom! I am planning on putting the Hoverama in my living room and simply enjoying it for its beauty once it is finished ;-) Therefore I decided to go for a scheme with hi-vis/day-glow panels. Ever since I saw German WWII planes, I was fascinated with the contrast of camouflage and hi-vis patches. So for me the only way to go for me is a flat OD with a glistening bright orange – something like http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dust-off_MEDEVAC_navigates_the_high_seas.jpg but without the red cross. A scheme that might even exist for a bird used in training the art of sling-loading by pilots and ground personnel – and an eye catcher for sure ! And so I went shopping : Academy 1/35 UH-60L Blackhawk (this one has actually a working cargo hook) Eduard BigEd set for the bird CMK Helicopter Crew (if it is flying there has to be crew inside) an Italeri 1/35 HMMWV to dangle below the bird Here is one picture of the lot Beyond the actual build, I want to do the following on the Blackhawk in order to represent the situation in the Hoverama as closely possible extend the oleo struts on the LG as if it is unloaded deflect the horizontal stabiliser, which keeps the fuselage level during hover add mud to a sector of the wheels, as if the Blackhawk landed on soft ground A further complication arises from the fact, that I have no modelling specific tools and I do not plan to invest in much, because this could be my last model for the next ten years :-) (but who knows :-D ). So instead of doing wonderfull things, I will just use the hairy-stick method with Revel Aquas. The only concession to a good finish will be a rattle-can of OD. For now I am going to put this thread into hibernation, because I want to go back into the swing of things with the HMMWV. In fact, for someone who hasn’t touched a model in the last 10 years, the prospect of tackling such a large model including photo-etched parts is rather frightening. So I am going to use the sling load as a training ground to shape up before attacking the bird. And here is the link to the WIP of the HMMWV, which will be the first step in the creation of this Hoverama : http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234971988-the-hoverama-hmmwv/ Hope you enjoy following this built as much as I will building it !
