MH-60K Blackhawk SOA

12/28/2013  I built this Italeri 1/48 MH-60K BlackHawk SOA helicopter for my son Barry who had just gone through a 9 hour open heart surgery a couple of months before.  The kit is a straight forward build, but the instructions leave a little to be desired.  That said this is a great kit and I would build it again.  I also used the Eduard FE497 MH-60K interior set which is very nice, but you can hardly see any of the instrument panels when it's all closed up.  I also used the Eduard mask set for this and found it to be very useful.  I painted to overall Tamiya olive drab and when decaled it looked very nice.  On to the pictures…
