A straight out of the box build of the SH-60B Seahawk of the the US Navy. A nice and easy kit to work that comes with a crew of three and Torpedo's and a sonar. Two color options are provided and I decided to go with the low visibility scheme used in modern US navy choppers.

The difficult part of this build was aligning the windscreen to the front cockpit as it requires some amount of sanding of the front cockpit roofline to get a flush fit. The stock main rotor blades provided are straight and I had to bend them with a hot air gun to give some amount of sag and make them look realistic.

Otherwise, there were no problems faced and the decals were just perfect!
