  1. You have the chaff and flare buckets backwards, the ones that are angled out on both sides are the newer flare buckets and the chaff is the older one you have facing down. Is there any way you can switch them around still. Looking good so far Yeah I hate to see wheels like that too good fix on yours well done. Like the PE as well
  2. not sure what the upper part is but that doesn't go on the stab but the bottom one does for sure. That is the stab actuator. The ESSS looks really good now that you put that plastic in place it set just right. Looks good
  3. Take the stab actuator and move it up further underneath the fairing as shown here.
  4. the part for the stabilator accuator is in the kit it is A9 it is next to the collectives and the fuel dump pipe
  5. Yes sir those are them, you can use a scrap piece of card to cover that. The ESSS fairing will cover that up so it wont be seen.
  6. If you can remove those step fairings those are the old styl and arent used hardly anymore especially with the DAP's. If you cant sand the ridge down and that should help. The things on the gear legs are wire cutters whcih is part of the wire strike kit on the hawk.
  7. Dont scribe the ovals those are not on the Blackhawk. Academy molded those for the spot for the Weather radar for the MH-60G. you can fill those in.
  8. Here are the pics of the areas I pointed out to you. This is from my hawk this morning Erick
  9. Just some observations of your build to improve some of your work that is looking pretty good. The white square in the pic should be an access panel scribed in and then split down the middle. The square is not accurate but an approx position for the oil cooler access doors. The black line is another panel line that needs to be scribed across for the APU compartment doors, and the red lines on the HIRSS supports show where they should go not turned in. Keep up the good work Erick
  10. I used the Academy IP coaming for my Superhornet build and it fit perfect. Might be something to look at and try it also fits the IP with no mods. Looks good so far keep it up
  11. Looking nice bro thats what I love about this hobby is we can share info between each other
  12. You will have to ask Timmy they are his and I dont want to impose but he should be able to help you out bro
  13. hahaha amen bro i do as well sometimes hahah, I removed the whole wall from what I can see it is just the armor plate behind the seat. Pm timmy here and he should be able to help you out, pm me to and give me your email addy so we can talk offline
  14. Was talking with Timmy the guy who did the scratch 24th D model and he told me there is no bulkhead behind the Obs seat just the armor plate, so thats what I am going with, he sent me a bunch of pics and it is a straight thru shot and it gives you more opprotunities to add wire bundles along the backsides,
  15. Ah I see what you did now makes sense, well I have already cut mine and will refix not that hard will prob just glue to side of walls wont see it anyway, I know that the back wall is not there on the real a/c just the armor plate so I have already removed mine and am going to detail up that back area that is just visible enough behind the seat, thanks for the clarification, Vandy if im not mistaken the FLIR controller is on the right side console I have a pic somewhere in my Bronco folder that shows it when I find it i'll double check on it.
  16. Make sure you are making the correct seats. There are three types of seats in the Blackhawk depending on the model and age of the helo looks good so far
  17. have you looked at the clearance when you added the back extension for the observers IP. Im looking at mine and to me I might have to cut the sides and move them back to get the correct look. My IP is almost up to the throttle quadrant and it shouldn't be. I cant tell with your pics if you have the same issue or not. Thought I would share
  18. If the FLIR is on you would have either a black and white image of what the camera is looking at depending on if it is black or white hot selected.
  19. Is it the pics or do the tank fins look bigger than the kit fins? Are the slanted fins larger in real life than the straight ones?? Looking great Brian
  20. Looking forward to this looks like you have a good build ahead
  21. Hey Brian, make sure you double check the instructions, have already found several errors some which you have pointed out as well. The Upper Ejection handles are not listed in the instructions but are in the kit as well as, the instructions have you place the PE gear handle on the throttle quadrant instead of the front IP. I also agree with you this kit is nothing short of amazing for fit, I haven't had any issues at all I made seat cushions out of Milliput and that helps the seats and drilled out the canopy breakers on the top of the seats as well. Yours is looking awesome bro keep it up j
  22. Awesome work how did you do the front tire
