  1. i removed the blades for the pictures so both hawks can be close to each other, and so i can save space in the display cabinet
  2. so i finally finished this two birds, i modified the main blades so they can be removed for storage , and in order to take this pictures one next to each other. Now i am waitin the release of the Seahawk to add another one to the family
  3. Nice new project Chck, i never get bored with you work and photos of the step by step, always keep following your works, i hope this Special hobby kit will be better than the ones i tried to build, never finished one because of terrible fitting issues, looks like this one is better than the other ones, will keep looking on the progress of this one Jorge
  4. Thanks Kev, its being a long time without doing something bigger than 1/48, but i am a big fan of the black hawk helicopter family, so you will see much more of it, as i am planning to buy all the Kitty Hawk releases of this chopper Jorge
  5. thanks Chuck, but nothing compares to your work as well as you photographic log of your work Jorge
  6. nothing much to say, i am still on the process of paint, worked on the tail boom left side, kind of like the finish so far, the nose is with the base coat, no weathering yet, and i added the sub parts so i can get a general look of what is done so far
  7. Pete, yes the black is a nightmare to work with, for the first time i am using oils to do the tonal variations on the black is the only way i found to get i nice looking black finish
  8. I have been playing with some parts of the MH-60L that can be painted away from the model to get the touch of the black before i proceed with the fuselage, and also preparing the fuselage for the final coat of color
  9. it is not gray, in the pictures looks like gray but in person it is like a light greenish and brown color for the faces of the instruments i used decals form Airscale decals
  10. Now starts, the nightmare, working with the color black, it is not easy to get a nice look, and even worse is to photograph it, but to me it looks ok, i did some test on the tail, and at the second attempt i think a got it right
  11. fuselage is close, and i replaced the tail rotor transmission ventilation grill, and added texture to the walkways on top of the engines
  12. Hello everyone, i am starting this post with some parts of the build already done, this will be a OOB build, i will add just a few wires here and there, here is how the interior looks before the fuselage was close
  13. I never did a build post on these, right now i am working on a new DAP with the Kitty Hawk model, i used NATO black as the base color, and from there i lightened or darkened the base color
  14. The rotor drops comes molded in the blades already, nice detail from KH
  15. I know Tim i already pre ordered one, and yesterday bought the L to do it as the 160th DAP, i need to update the one already have done 6 years ago from the Academy kit Jorge
  16. Troy, thanks for your words, love the black hawk family in all the color we have seen them, but for me, the only army hawk i will do will be the black 160th DAP or SOAR those are a mean machines, next on the list of "to do" at the moment will be the knighthawk and the seahawk, when someone release a conversion kit for the new SOAR then it will be in my "to do" list, don't get me wrong but i don't find the helo drab hawks very atractive Tim , i will not be doing a dio with this helo, i am not a Dio guy
  17. thanks guys, it is a simple work, just out of the box, added some cables on the outside, i know it is not a nut job like the other one being done in the forum
  18. i need to clean the greasy finger print on the windshield, that is the problem of closeup pictures
  19. Here it is, finally i finished this kit, so far the best HH-60G kit in the market, figures are from Live Resin
  20. Hi Matt, i used Twobobs decal for this kit Jorge
  21. Thanks Jake, yes you are right, on the next one i am correcting all the mistakes, but this one will have to live with the mistakes
  22. So here is the second representative of the collection , USAF F-16 in splinter camo, next in line on the table will be Alaska splinter Jorge Oppenheimer
