  1. Just saw your blood bag. Yeah, definitely make it alot darker. That floor armor looks way cool all weathered. How did you make it, paint it and weather it??? Tim
  2. Just simply mind-blowing. Looks like looking down the real thing! Can't wait for you start the instrument panel and center console. Tim
  3. A little bit more work on the cockpit. I gave the instrument panel and center console a good dusting of North Africa dust to make it look like a dusty helo flying in Somalia. Tim
  4. The crash axe was 3d printed in resin and will be part of a detail upgrade kit from a aftermarket company coming out soon. It's not part of the actual kit though. With your talent, you can make one and it will look outstanding. I'll PM you a crash axe pic. Tim
  5. Yes, I would put a label on it for a little more "wow " to it. Also maybe make 1 blood bag. Tim
  6. Guess I'm not using imageshack. Everytime I try to upload a pic, there's an error message. Tim
  7. I'm bias as I was part of the R&D team with Floyd Werner and others and we think we nailed it pretty good. The only fit issue I keep hearing about is that when you close up the fuselage, it's a tight fit so modelers have been carefully sanding the outside of all the cabin walls that come in contact with the fuselage half on both sides until the fuselage is alot more easy to go together. A certain helicopter aftermarket company is in the process of making some goodies for the MH-60L, so stay tuned!!!! Just sayin Tim Tim
  8. The fit to me is just fine, but maybe a little on tight side for some parts. Not Tamiya fit, but pretty good. Tim
  9. I'll check imageshack out. Thanks Kev. By the way, can you remove those comments going back and forth about my 3 times opening an old topic? Thanks Tim
  10. This is way better resolution than PB. Welp, looks like I may have to quit PB. One thing: With PB, I have a 2500 pic limit. What's the pic limit for Flickr? Tim
  11. So here's the cockpit close to done after weathering the floor. I still need to weather the IP and console some. Tim
  12. Now before all of you lambast me and tar & feather me, I decided to go back to PB a few months back and pay $4.99 a month for 2500 pics limit. That's good for me since I don't get to model a whole lot. I've noticed recently while uploading my pics from PB to a WIP thread, that my pics that were in great focus before are posted with a big difference in focus. Not sure why. I wouldn't mind giving Flickr another try if my pics would be better focused and they would stop having issues and bugs ( the reason I changed). Try to keep it civil, ok? Tim
  13. Totally cool Pete. Those look so real!!! Tim
  14. A little bit of work on the copilot seat tonight. I scratchbuilt the seat release handles and the inertia reel cables from lead wire and stretched sprue. Still gotta put the seat belts on next. Tim
  15. Wow, I gotta get me some of that wire. That looks dead on!!! Tim
  16. Yeah, next MH-60L I build, I want to use those resin knobs! Tim
  17. Anthony, actually the instrument decals are made by Airscale. They are totally beautiful for accurate cockpits. Tim
  18. I don't have any kind of oil paints. Any Vallejo suggestions instead? Tim
  19. Anthony, I never thought about sand in and on the panels. May have to try it. Tim
  20. Oliver, what color would be best to use for drybrushing? Tim
  21. I think I'll shoot it with flat then simulate the gauge glass with Krystal Kleer. Tim
  22. In person, the gloss of the decal gives it that "glass" look. Tim
  23. I'm calling the instrument panel done. Should I spray a flat coat on or not? Tim
