Academy 1/48 Sikorsky MH-60G Pave Hawk

with Eduard photo-etched detail sets

55th SOS, 1st SOW, US Air Force, Saudi Arabia 1991

As their UH-60L was nice, I built the Academy MH-60G Pave Hawk. This time I added two Eduard photo-etch detail sets for the interior and exterior of the helicopter. These sets were very nice and provided details for the cockpit as well as antennae, grills, wipers, etc. The finish is Humbrol acrylics that looked about right. The kit decals were used, and they were fine. As with the UH-60L, I messed up the rotors — these are on upside-down. The kit provides a very nice base for further detailing.

Year bought: 1995 (Beatties, Guildford)

Year built: 1996 (Send Marsh, Surrey, UK)
