The UH-60M composite blades are available in 1/48 from ScaleWorx. He does not maintain a public facing website but is on FB if that is your kind of thing. He also has cast the upturned exhaust. Contact John at info@scaleworx.com for more details.

In 1/35 your best best is to snatch a set of composite rotors from the Academy MH-60L and modify as needed. 

Best of luck

The Academy MH-60L rotors are not the same as on the M model.  The biggest difference is the down-turned blade tips.  They are also wider, but only about 1mm in 1/35. 

The only option in 1/35 is the now out of production Cobra Company UH-60M conversion set.  It includes a bunch more items than just the blade additions.  I reviewed the set here: https://aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=9861

CC also made a set for the Upturned Exhaust System seen on the latest M models. https://aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=10196

Lone Star Models bought all the Cobra Company masters.  He is slowly offering them at his store:  https://www.lonestarmodels.com/store

He isn't currently offering the UH-60M set or the UES, but may make them if you contact him.

No problem.  I humped plenty of miles with the infantry as a Co and Bn FSO.

Like I said you can modify the blades from the Academy kit. I dont know of any Mike blades for the 60 series in 1/35th outside of those. I have all the CC sets Gino mentioned. They are interior and exterior correction and detail sets. Good luck with Mike at Lone Star Models.

Here are a few images. The last was my sister's unit in Ghazni Province for one of her multiple tours.
