Boeing-Sikorsky MQ-21A Superhawk
« on: June 22, 2018, 07:06:46 PM »
This is a future attack UAV built by Boeing-Sikorsky. Sharp eyed modellers will see it has a very close resemblance to the failed 1996 RAH-66 Comanche helicopter. The name is an homage to the Sikorsky S-67 Blackhawk  ;)

The kit is the 1/72 Italeri RAH-66. Nice kit. I covered up the cockpit with styrene sheet. Added AIM-9 launch rails and AIM-65 Mavericks. Decals are from UAV and AV-8 kits.

It would appear that my "Getoffyourassium"anti-procrastination drug is still working.

Carl,

Now you are scaring me!

That doesn't look like a "what if." It does look like is a nightmare that may show up in Ottawa, looking for Trudeau, if the NAFTA negotiations break down.

What do you know that we don't?

all best

I was so lazy Greg, I used clips to hold the kit.

Did the model have an agreed upon "safe word" to halt further clamping?  :)

Definitely a nice alteration done with that RAH-66 Commanche kit.

So I find the unloved weapons and then build an aircraft around them.   ;)
