What did you use for the rear landing gear?

Thanks again. And thank you for the comparison pic. I started reworking the cockpit doors.

I'm not sure. I searched through about 50 wheels in a parts box before I found the right size.

Well that's pretty cool, though the strut looks a tad short though...

Not much. Just putty and sand, more putty and sand.

It's taking a while but getting there. This side is almost finished then clean up the other side. Now I'm starting to get nervous about where to get decals printed.

I hope that you were able to finish up this Project. I had some questions for you as well.

I just got a Project MH-60T Jayhawk conversion, that is not all that different from this one. It came to me painted but, not with any decals. I found Callie Graphics https://callie-graphics.com/ and she is doing my markings from photographs and a fuselage length measurements for about $25.00.

An aquaintance of mine was in the Coast Guard here on Cape Cod at the Air Station. He was a crew member. He had started on a conversion of a BBI 1/18 UH-60 to a MH-60T. He got it cut up, did the deletions and conversion part done, reassembled and painted. It needs a bit of work, which I have started on. I tracked down the guy that started this project and he told me that he remembers me and is very happy that I bought it from a mutual friend, with the intent of finishing it up. He also told me that he has pretty much everything that is needed other than the markings.

I will share photos, just as soon as I can get some taken )I am disabled). I also need to find a site that I can host them on other than photobucket. I hope to have this done real soon.

I LOVE what you have done with this Blackhawk to a Seahawk conversion. If possible could you show how you did the exhaust backdate?
Thanks in advance!
