Boy this is news to me! Anyone know anymore about it? I'd definitely be in for one.

If they can do this right it will be a money maker for them as there hasn't been a good/accurate Seahawk in a long time.

There is no Seahawk at all in 35th scale so far... Looking forward to this, no need to continue my Academy conversion. Great news!

Well Academy missed a good opportunity! I am happy finally somebody is willing to release the Seahawk! However, the 1/35th scale is a total stupidity. Indeed, for Army helos, I "may" understand the diorama idea.

 

However, who's making carrier deck, vehicles or helo crew in 1/35th scale?!? There are Reedoak pilots but nothing to make a deck section and no possibility to combine with planes... Stupid idea!

 

The only reason I could see would be the intention to have some common sprues with a future Blackhawk release. However, to me, this stays a bad idea.

Yes, daft as a brush. As long as nobody does a Sea King in HP2 battery-powered racing scale.

Goes for artistic over accuracy. Looks fantastic - but an ‘artist’s impression’ is not a sound basis for a kit.

Sorry to have to agree, but I think an objective look at almost any KH kit will confirm that the designer really isn't that knowledgeable about aircraft, nor a particularly clever kit design engineer.  There are a few of his kits that are pretty good, but the majority are overly fussy to construct, and they've done some *major* boob jobs due to a lack of very basic research and understanding of how aircraft are constructed and how they work (like curved piano hinges, for example).

I hope the SH-60 will be a shining exception, but the proof will be in the pudding.
