1/72 Hobby Boss UH-60A

by Austin Kennedy



Hello ARC.  This is my first article.  I finished this model in January, and to be frank, it isn't the best 1/72nd UH-60 out there.  I would stick to Italeri, but this was, nevertheless, a very fun build.  It is inaccurate with the nose shape and the canopy length/scribing is off.  As you may notice, I repainted the canopy, among other parts.

I painted the model with a mix of MM acrylics and I weathered with Oil Paints, which was a first for me.  I think it turned out well.  There were no M-60's included in the kit, so I assembled the M-60D's from Hasegawa (front), Italeri (back and handles), DML (ammo bag/box), and styrene (mount).

Happy modeling & take care,
