Gino, a very beautiful build. The appearance of this 'Hawk is very "busy". Looks really awesome.

Best wishes,

Ian

Gino,
What an incredible build with your added detail, as well as AM parts. I've never been much of a Helo enthusiast, but your build is certainly one of the best of the best.

Great job and review Gino! I have this kit at home and have been adding a few more 1/35 scale helos. Looks like I will be giving Chris at CC another order soon!

I was reading this last week and then lo and behold, someone had it at a show Saturday for $35! Obviously had to grab it. With what I saved I guess I'll be picking up a few detail sets.

Good luck on it. It can become a great model. I highly recommend the Shapeways printed rotor hinges, by our own Matt Leese. The folded rotors (and tail) really save on the space it can take up.
