HH-60G Pavehawk Kitty Hawk 1/35


Recommended Posts

Those guns are pretty darned impressive Pete. 
I’m rather glad you mentioned the fit for the Academy kit. As I also have a pair of Live resin guns to put on my kit. I’d have probably just torn my hair out wondering why they didn’t match up, and chucked them against a wall.

Glad I could help!

going forward, I’ll use all of the live Resin parts except the external magazine boxes- those simply won’t work with the Kitty Hawk kit. I also modified the Live Resin mounts to fit the kit- I sliced off the horizontal cylinder portion of the kit mount that connects to the sponson, and grafted it onto the Live Resin mount.

I’ll try to take a photo and show you-

Hey all-

...been wiggling the gun and gunner..test fitting how this important part of the scene will shake out-

I’ve got little blobs of Blue tack here and there while I maneuver the elements into something realistic-

 

Im not there yet- you can see the challenge will be to get the gunners left hand holding the grip on the frame, and the cradle flush to the vertical mount...ugh. I’ll figure it out after a few more bad words..

Pig, the Helo is superb. But it's the figures that take this to the next level. I can't imagine the pain it was/is to get that gunner to where he's holding on to TWO different locations, and it's looking spot on. Most of us struggle to get the danged landing gear straight and all touching, let alone a gunner leaning out of the window...  Brilliant work and tanks for taking the time to document it all.
