US Air Support: Sikorsky UH-60L Black Hawk

UK based gamers may have seen the launch of one of those interminable part-works magazines, this time Helicopter Magazine. The magazine comes with a 1/72nd scale pre-painted die-cast model each issue (which appear to be Amercom produced Altaya models), the first issue coming with a very useful UH-60L Black Hawk for the introductory price of just £2.99 (normal magazine/model price is £7.99), A quick trip to the local newsagent has seen my US Expeditionary Force in Whirarwistan reinforced with three Black Hawks for under a tenner ready to play with...


The whole series seems to be around twenty-eight models strong (four of which - including a Mi-24 Hind - are part of the subscription deal) and I am giving serious consideration to taking out a subscription as there are a lot of useful looking models in the collection (issue three comes with a Boeing MH47E Chinook!).

    1. Shipping to the States is expensive from the UK, might be worth checking out this guy in Ireland, his prives are pretty good, especially if ordering more than one of anything... http://stores.ebay.ie/MilitaryModels/Helicopters-/_i.html?_fsub=2853713011&_sid=228885371&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322
