It is a pretty good kit.  It could use some details on the interior and a few corrections. I have built a few (6) of the different Academy H-60 Hawk variants.  They can come out really nice.  

On an accuracy note, the kit is really an MH-60L, the US military does not use the AH (Attack Helicopter) designation with H-60 Hawk variants.

Here are a few examples (most of the pics are gone thanks to PhotoBucket, but they are still at the More Here links and on my PhotoBucket pages): http://smg.photobucket.com/user/HeavyArty/library/
