Coming home from work I was lucky enough to get a copy of the new Helicopter magazine with a die cast 1/72nd scale Blackhawk. At £2.99 I think this was quite a bargain, I will not be getting any more now the 1sr (introductory) issue is over and the price goes up. However for 3 quid I cant complain. It comes pre-painted and assembled so for the money there really is nothing to do in order to get it on the table. I have taken a couple of snaps (as you can see) on my Afghanistan boards because they are the right scale and setting. I feel sure you'll approve.
I I have nothing to share from the painting table today (or work up the garage (AKA my shed) as I have been doing 3 hours overtime at work each day and it really is stopping me get things finished. Still the overtime funds the hobby so who am I to complain. I should say that since taking these snaps one of the rotors has snapped off and one of the m60 machine guns has broken off as well add that to the broken stand I have to conclude that the plastic components are quite brittle. Still they will be easy fixes and for the price I am still happy with this purchase. So happy I have thought about getting a second Blackhawk but have decided against it on balance.
Short and sweet today. I shall post again on Saturday. Until then take care and talk to you soon. All the best Clint
