HobbyBoss UH-60N conversion to VH-60N Whitehawk
Posted by PipePlayer on Sunday, June 17, 2018 9:11 AM

Hey guys,

I want to convert the 1/72 HobbyBoss UH-60N Blackhawk into a VH-60N Whitehawk of HMX-1.  I know Hawkeye produced a resin conversion set for the VH-60N that is no longer available, so I need some suggestions on how to proceed.  The engine exhaust shrouds (they’re a bit beyond my scratchbuild abilities at this point), and the starboard cabin doors are my main concerns.  

Does anyone happen to have one of the Hawkeye resin sets they would be willing to part with?  What other resin conversions could I use?  Any other suggestions would be most welcome.

I don't know about anything in 1/72, but there is/was the MRC/Academy/MiniCraft 1/48 VH-60N.

Also, there is no such aircraft as a UH-60N.  I think you mean the Hobby Boss UH-60A Black Hawk.  The VH-60N is based on the later MH-60L w/HIRSS (Hover Infra-Red Supression System) exhaust covers.  It would be much better to start with a MH-60L since there are other minor (larger step sponsons, weather radar, missile counter-measures system, etc...) and some major (square, folding rear stabilator) differences as well.

I did indeed mean the UH-60A...thanks for catching that!  Also wasn’t aware of the MRC 48th scale kit.  I’ll see if I can find one one of those.  Thanks for your input!!
