Nooo!!!. Does anyone have the decal sheet that went with Kittyhawk's 1/48 UH-1N Huey? Maybe we could figure out a decal swap or somethin. Wanted that kit; can't find it now.... :( 

 

I have the UH-1D huey in the stash. I can state without question that the newer KH kits were amazing. They had some errors in the instructions, but the Viper is one of the finest kits I've ever tackled.

I didn't find them too hard to build; a little fiddly here and there, but about average. I have built two of their 1/35 Hawks; MH-60L and HH-60G. 

Here are mine: MH-60L backdated to MH-60A from Somalia: http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/16/t/186009.aspx?page=1

HH-60G Alaska Air Guard: https://archive.aeroscale.net/review/15165/

Which MH-60 were the directions a mess on? Kitty Hawk had a few misprints, but sent me PDFs of the instructions to fix it. I have them if anyone needs them.

Same. I was going to retry the MH60 until I read this post. They had the instructions all messed up and I ended up "scratch" building a 150$ model. There sure was a lot of detail though. Also a positive, I upped my filler game and tried some new filler products and new sand sticks. Trying to remain positive.

Unfortunatly, Im not a Kitty Hawk kit fan. Ive attempted 2 of them and both ented up in the oval file. They have interesting subjects, but didnt think the quality was very good. If someone picks up the molds, I hope they make improvements.

Unfortunately, it looks that way. Get them while you can.

So the folks behind Kitty Hawk (and Panda) have announced they're going out of business.  Might want to stock up on those 'Hawk variants; there's no telling if anyone else will be picking up those molds or how long it would take for production to ramp up again at a different company.
