Upgrades for Academy AH-60 DAP (MH-60L DAP)
Posted by Orange on Thursday, June 28, 2018 5:08 PM

I am about to begin buidling the 1/35 scale Academy Ah-60L DAP, properly named MH-60L, and I am trying to find photoetch and resin upgrades.  I found a resin M134D mount specifically for this model from a company called models-hobby.com and it would be an excelent upgrade.  My question is if anyone has ever purchased anything from this company before?  The company is located in Russia and I'm worried the shipping cost would be outragous.  If anyone knows of another place to purchase upgrade accessories I'm all ears.  Thank you.

Yes, I have bought from them.  The company is actually called Live-Resin and their products are great.  Models-hobby.com is their webpage.  Their service is great and the guy who runs it, Yaroslav, is great to work with. 

As to the MH-60L, there were a bunch of resin upgrades for it from a company called Cobra Company.  Unfortunately, they went out of business last year.  Their masters and stock was bought by Lone Star Models:  http://www.lonestarmodels.com/store  Click on Cobra Company and then 1/35 and you will see what he has to offer.  He is slowly releasing the CC sets.  Werner's Wings also has some great items, to include decals:  http://www.wernerswings.com/product.html  Scroll down to 1/35.

For PE, Eduard does a few sets for the standard UH-60A/L, MH-60G, and MH-60S.  All these apply to the MH-60L as well.

Here is a build I did a while ago:  http://www.aeroscale.co.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=45930&page=1

This is great information, thank you very much.  Glad to know that the models-hobby.com is a solid company.  I already purchased the Eduards MH-60G PE sets.  Looking now for the correct Night Stalker decals.  I have never attempted a model to this degree of detail and upgrades.  Looking forward to it.  

Your build of the DAP looks awesome.  Really appreciate the information and hope I can pick your brain as I begin.

Looking now for the correct Night Stalker decals. 

The Werner's Wings 160th SOAR Nightstalkers decals are great and are historically accurate.  I actually helped in the research for many of their sets.  They are perfect for a  160th SOAR MH-60L DAP.
