Skunkmodels Workshop have issued a good model of the USCG HH-60J Jayhawk, and Joe Szczygielski, [Mother], created a beautiful build of this beautiful bird for us!

Nice job Joe. The review and build look great. Good job. Now you have to build one in 1/35!

Thanks Gino and you're right about 1/35th. I did start doing the measurement and drawings for it, not only the Coast Guard version but it will work for the Sea Hawks helos as well.

Happy Modeling,
Joe

A Navy Hawk sounds good too. I know the mods in 1/35 are pretty extensive. As you may remember, I did it a few yeras ago.




It was well worth it though.
