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


Recommended Posts

Some work detailing up the tailwheel tonight. I painted it using my custom Night Stalker black. I painted the tire and the electrical cable tamiya rubber black.

I used a chrome molotow 1mm marker for the oleo strut and wow, I love it.

I then hit it with testors dullcote followed up by a highlighting using a white chalk pastel.

I'm a big fan of MM Interior Black for 160th subjects.   It's a a hard to explain sheen about it that does a good job of replicating the paint on the real thing.   Of course,  given the way their helos weather, it's just for a base coat.   Glad I bought a couple of bottles before MM called it a day.

Pete, the Night Stalker black is really just 2 parts MM acrylic Army Helo drab and 1 part MM acrylic interior black. I imagine MRP NATO black and helo drab would work just as well if not better.

I do have the new Live Resin figures for the killer egg- might be a fun project!

Tonight I finished up the upper transition area of the MH-60L. I read where flying leathernecks offered a 1/35 ALQ-144 so I bought it and put it on. The wiring was 2 short pieces of  020 lead wire. I drilled a 1mm hole and pushed the wires thru and glued them underneath. 
I'm pretty happy with the way it looks!

Here's what I'm after:

Those figures are just stupid detailed! I love them.

Gotta get the NVG'S too!

A little more done on the MH-60 tonight. The top doghouse was a tight fit that needed clamps to get it down fully onto the fuselage. It's definitely not as good as Pete's helo, but I like it.

Tim,

I would wait to glue the rotor mast since it appears you still a good amount of work to be done on your kit...so it does break while handling the helo and also easier to paint without it. its looking good.
