Military Scale Modelling

Showcase: 1/35 AH-60L DAP Black Hawk (Academy 2217)

AH-60L DAP Black Hawk (Academy 2217)


I wanted to build the Blackhawk MH-60L DAP because it is such an impressive helicopter to see. I found out that Academy had a 1/35 scale kit, exactly the scale I prefer! To add extra detail to this Blackhawk MH-60L DAP I used the interior PE set from Eduard (#32071). I really liked this extra because it adds a lot of extra detail to the Blackhawk MH-60L DAP interior.

The Build

The kit itself has some problems, there are pretty big gaps between the fuselage and the inner platform. The rest of the kit went along nicely!

Painting and Weathering

The decals where way to thick, so I couldnt apply them nicely (silvering), although I used the strongest decal softener on the market. Because this was my first big helicopter (1/35) I didn’t try to weather it. main reason for this was that the colour is very dark, and I wasnt to familiar with weathering at that moment.


The Ah-60L DAP Black Hawk is one impressive machine! using this kit to build one yourself is a challenge because of the fitting problems of some parts. With patience and skill you can surely achieve some really nice results!
