UH100 Black Hawk Stealth
Posted by Tiking on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 2:23 PM

First of all, I must say that the Italeri,
UH-60/MH-60 BLACK HAWK 'night raid' 1/48 scale kit, sucked big time. Maybe it was my bad luck but the fittings has one of the worst fittings I have ever experienced. Not only that, but the instructions was so bad.   Thank goodness, I was not trying to duplicate any particular prototyp model, which would have been a disaster. At the end, things were so misaligned that I just had to improvised, to hide certain areas. It helped, but only to an extend. So forgive me, if certain areas do not look that they have a perfect fitting. But, that was the best I could do. The engines rotate, for take off and flight mode.

Anyways, here is kit-bashed, modified, with a little scratch building involved, which resulted in this 'UH100 Black Hawk Stealth design. Hope you like the results, regardless of the difficulties I have had trying to put this build together.

Another super cool build.  I tilt-jet.  I dig the finish and a bit bummed about the kit issues as I have one in the stash.

Thanks,

John

Maybe I was just unlucky. But I saw a similar model that someone else had built, and saw from the photos that he put up, he had the same issues.

Looks really cool! I can vision this vehicle in the post apocalyptic terminator world! Great job once again. Sorry to hear you had issues, but, from what I see, you overcame them very well.

Thank you. Overcame with improvision made to it. There was no way to completely overcome it.
