I think she looks grand ER! Of course I'm quite the fan of "hawks." What kind of weathering you planning? Since it's a Seahawk she probably has some salt damage to the body.

Re: Hobby Boss 1/72 SH-60 SeaHawks

Kinda like those old F-14s and such. A little fading in some spots and slight darkening in others. You could just use a slightly lightened version of the base color, thin it down heavily and give some random spots in the middle of some panels a shot through the AB. Then give her a good wash down and wipe off. Should give a good representation of a Sea bird. Repeat the wash as needed in areas to increase the effect.

Thanks for the advise, Myke... i'll try some modulation on the top parts and bit of Oil and Grease wash on the rotors. :)

Yep, Looking super sharp Eastrock! Still a bit "factory fresh" but I know you will take care of that with a little weathering. Beautiful work on this ER!!

Looks good Eastrock, great work. A little weathering and a little flat coat, then off to the display shelf. :)
