Kitty Hawk has announced it will be releasing soon a SH-60F Ocean Hawk in 1/35 scale.

Read the Full News Story

They have also released decal drawings of their forthcoming 1/35 SH-60B Sea Hawk ASW as well.

If you have comments or questions please post them here.

Thanks!

Very nice. This will look great and open up all sorts of possibilities and versions based on this one (HH-60H, MH-60R, USCG MH-60J, etc..).

The included decal options pics are not correct though. They are for another forthcoming 1/35 SH-60B kit, not the SH-60F.

Now they just need to get their long-awaited 1/35 MH-60L and HH-60G onto the street, quickly followed by these two Navy Hawks.

This brings back memories.... Eight years of working on them with over 2 years of that at sea. I will have to pick up one of these. There are some very pretty SH-60F's out there. Check out the HS-11 "Dragonslayers" (near to my heart) for thier color bird. It is a shame the site shows the "B" model color birds.

Nice. I really like the dragon face on the stabilator.

Lots of great looking options. Glad they are including a Top Gun bird, didn't look good for Fightertown upscaling thier decal sheet.
