I used an Academy 1/35 scale UH-60L blackhawk as a base for this L.A. County S-70A Firehawk. As an ex fireman I like to build rescue and fire aparatus. I extended the landing struts and scratchbuilt the watertank. The interior was made up of some parts out of my sparesbox, the seatbelts are made from lead foil with photoetched buckles. The foldable seats in the roof were made of wire and leadfoil. I gave the engine some plumbing with a few odd pieces of wire. I mainly used Humbrol for the interior and Tamiya gloss paints for the exterior. The decals were printed on my laser printer. The only reference I had was a few photos I got of the net.
