1/35 KH MH-60L "Super 63"

Recommended Posts

Finally after years of wanting to know information about my friend Joe Pascetti's bird he crewed down in Mogadishu-Super 63, I have been able to befriend many crew chiefs and pilots who were there and was given many pics of OGS and their MH-60L's.

Here's 2 pics I was given of the C2 MH-60.

So I finally started building it. My build looks like a child's toy compared to Pete's HH-60G.

First I had to correct the instrument panel and center console to represent close to what they looked like on the real MH-60L. The caution/advisory panel is located on the bottom left of the console on the real thing.

KH's panel, though very nice, represents a later year panel and has the CA on the instrument panel itself. So I took and cut down and sanded the Academy part and shaved off the detail on the console and glued it in place.

Next i shaved off the detail on the KH IP and replaced it with some PE detail parts from Airscale.

Next was the cockpit and cabin floor. 
I started off by painting the floor Light Ghost Gray followed by putting down strips of 1.5 mm Aizu tape.
I then sprayed Tamiya Sky Grey to represent the non-slip striped found on the cabin floor.

I then added Mig North Africa dust pigment to the floor around the crew chief seats.

Started on the Robbie tank that will go inside Super 63 and added some extra detail using micromark rivet decals. You won't see it, but I know it's there. Top is before, and bottom is after.

I also assembled the Live Resin miniguns. Man the detail on these is incredible!

That's all for now

After a month of no painting because of a broken airbrush, a new patriot 105 body came in and now I can paint again. I painted the tank and the fittings and now I'm ready for the straps to be put on tomorrow night.

Should I spray a flat coat on or not?

 

 

Looks good!  I think it might look good under a flat coat with some UV gel/Future for the instruments

In person, the gloss of the decal gives it that "glass" look.
