$ 22.99

The model from UH-60 Black Hawk measures abut 9.5 inches in length. It is mostly made of metal. The plastic parts would be the wings, weapons and rotor blades. Both rotors can spin freely. The details are nice; the panels along the fuselage are very well defined and accurate. 

The wheels on the main landing gear can spin freely (so don't let it roll off a table). Both side doors can slide open and close. If you look carefully through the door's window or open the doors, you will see that there are seats and stations inside where the troops/crew would seat.

A display stand is included where the model can be mounted. Printed on the display's base is info about the model, such as scale and official name of the particular model.

The box measures 13.75 inches long by 4.75 inches high by 4 inches deep.

 

The Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk is a four-bladed, twin-engine, medium-lift utility helicoptermanufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft. Sikorsky submitted the S-70 design for the United States Army's Utility Tactical Transport Aircraft System (UTTAS) competition in 1972. The Army designated the prototype as the YUH-60A and selected the Black Hawk as the winner of the program in 1976, after a fly-off competition with the Boeing Vertol YUH-61.

The UH-60A entered service with the U.S. Army in 1979, to replace the Bell UH-1 Iroquoisas the Army's tactical transport helicopter. This was followed by the fielding of electronic warfare and special operations variants of the Black Hawk. Improved UH-60L and UH-60M utility variants have also been developed. Modified versions have also been developed for the U.S. NavyAir Force, and Coast Guard. In addition to U.S. Army use, the UH-60 family has been exported to several nations. Black Hawks have served in combat during conflicts in GrenadaPanamaIraqSomalia, the BalkansAfghanistan, and other areas in theMiddle East.
