UH100 Black Hawk Stealth
« on: August 31, 2020, 02:52:58 am »
First of all, I must say that the Italeri,
UH-60/MH-60 BLACK HAWK 'night raid' 1/48 scale kit, sucked big time. Maybe it was my bad luck but the fittings has one of the worst fittings I have ever experienced. Not only that, but the instructions was so bad.   Thank goodness, I was not trying to duplicate any particular prototyp model, which would have been a disaster. At the end, things were so misaligned that I just had to improvised, to hide certain areas. It helped, but only to an extend. So forgive me, if certain areas do not look that they have a perfect fitting. But, that was the best I could do. The engines rotate, for take off and flight mode.

Anyways, here is kit-bashed, modified, with a little scratch building involved, which resulted in this 'UH100 Black Hawk Stealth design. Hope you like the results, regardless of the difficulties I have had trying to put this build together.

If you had difficulties or fit issues you've hidden them too well for me to see! :bow: :bow:

I'm afraid I find Italeri can be a bit hit and miss when it comes to fit, even their more recent tooling's. Which is a shame as their transfer sheets tend to be brilliant.

Totally agree, looks tremendous.

My favorite detail is the inverted V tail, perfect not to be burnt by the jet engines (in horizontal cruise) <_<

Very cool.

In between jobs and homes.  New job starts soon, then search for new home, space for hobby room and display cases is non-negotiable.
