I Picked up a True Heroes Blackhawk from TRU, and while it wasn't bad out of the box, I thought it could be better. So, I decided to make this my first custom project.
I wanted to make this look similar to MH-60K, one of the special operations version of the Blackhawk. I didn't want to invest a great deal of time to this project, so didn't attempt to make this exactly like the MH-60K. I think I got close enough, so I'm pretty happy with the was it turned out.
It's pretty much done, except for a few small detail, like add a few little stickers, and make some fast ropes (the bar on the ceiling of the cargo bay is to connect the fast ropes to).
I first cut the cargo door opening larger. I didn't like the seats in the back, (Joes couldn't really seat in the seats properly), so I cut out the floor in the cargo area, and made a new floor out of styrene. I wanted to add mini-guns, so I fab up some mounts from picture hangers, and brake line. I used mini-guns from Marauder. The last thing I did was add a bar to connect fast ropes to on the ceiling of the cargo bay. I used Rust-Oleum camouflage green paint.
Anyway, here's some pics, let me know what you think.

That's really cool looking! I like the olive color scheme. I see this in TRU each time I go and am so tempted to pick one up-- $25 is a steal for this one! Well done!
