My first helicopter model.... (pics)
Posted by Kolja94 on Saturday, June 14, 2003 7:58 PM
Here's a Hasgawa 1/72 SH-60B with Penguin missile (a resin and photo-etch add-on included in the kit). I built it out of the box. It's hard to tell because of the TPS and the low light (oops), but it's in HSL-51 markings. This is my first helicopter effort, all my work up to now being jets. Feel free to leave comments or questions - might take me a while to reply because I'm leaving town for a couple weeks!!

Nice job Kolja94. Was the Apu exhaust part of the kit or was it in one of the aftermarket
sets you used ?

Looks very nice!Smile [:)]

1/72 is very difficult to build AND make it look clean! it helps to start with a GOOD kit!

Straighten up and fly right.....

Excellent work! I also think the low light enhances the imagery somewhat. Great work for a first helicopter! :-)

Just getting back home and catching up on the boards. I wanted to thank everyone for the kind words.

It is 100% out of the box, Fuzzy. Even the resin/photetch missle and "outrigger" (the thingy the missile mounts to) were included in the Hasegawa boxing. A multi-media kit, I guess!

Thanks again, everyone.

Very nice. I've got a Hasegawa Seahawk sitting in a box for the last 6 or so years because I'm afraid to touch it and fluff it up.
