"Lots of options, but..."
halfriday
Full disclosure: I was a UH-60 crew chief, so I am really familiar with the aircraft generally and am therefore probably unfairly picky. Still, this is a Jekyll-and-Hyde kit. On the plus side, there are a bazillion options if you are familiar with the aircraft you want to build; lots of MH-, AH-, HH-, and UH-60 variants can be fashioned reasonably well from this kit (depending on era you are modeling, as panels have changed over the service life of the Blackhawk). Until Kittyhawk came out with their $100-plus kit, this was the best Hawk in the best scale, and it's still probably the right choice for modelers of my pay grade. But fit is problematic and the decals are much more yellow than the OD markings on the 160th aircraft I happened to encounter during my enlistment. Some specific fit issues: make sure to sand down the top of the cargo hook box so the cabin floor can sit flat, and the windshield/greenhouse piece needs a lot of work. The floor and ceiling of the cabin are badly oversimplified, and the main landing gear struts are clearly visible in the cabin, so you might want some sheet styrene to cover them. Overall, I would recommend this kit to a modeler with a good understanding of the particular airframe they want to represent and the skills and patience to deal with the fit issues. The price gap between this and the much-lauded KH kit would cover a LOT of aftermarket; Werner's Wings has some nice options.

"AH-60L Blackhawk -Best Helicopter Model Ever"
JRB (Burleson, Texas)
I have put together many model helicopters in the recent past. My father was an Army Rotary Wing Pilot, hence my love for helicopters. This Blackhawk has got to be the best Helicopter Model I have done to date (since the 1/48th C-47 Chinook). It was the most challenging, most time consuming, and the most detailed model yet it was the most satisfying. It did require a large selection of paints. It is beautifully cast and the instructions are better than most. There are a few spots in the instructions that are opposite, but if you look at the real photos provided, you can figure it out. I would recommend this kit only to the best modelers. It is not for the novice. I loved it. I will probably build it again in the future. It is well worth the price for the finished unit.

 
"Excellent Kit"
jeremy.s.michels1
This is an excellent kit from Academy. The kit is also very big too as it is 1/35th scale. There is unfortunately no crew figures that come with the kit but ones can be bought separately. There are also aftermarket parts to help set this kit apart. There are different options while building the kit that the builder can choose. The instructions were easy to follow and the pieces are fit as they were supposed to.
