UH100 Black Hawk – Upgrade Design
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 partly, VTOL,stealth design with a twist. Hope you like the results, regardless of the difficulties I have had trying to put this build together. This was just a fun build with no regards to the physical and technical flight dynamics of this beast. 🙂
