US Coast Guard HH-60J Jayhawk
A 1:65 scale model of a US Coast Guard HH-60J Jayhawk rescue helicopter.
About this creation
This is a 1:65 scale model of a US Coast Guard HH-60J Jayhawk, the Coast Guard variant of the venerable Sikorsky S-70 family (which includes the well-known UH-60 Black Hawk). The HH-60J (most of which have now been upgraded to the MH-60T configuration) operates from a number of Coast Guard air stations, and it can also land on the 270-foot Famous class and 378-foot Hamilton class cutters. The 210-foot Reliance class cutters, as a result of their MMA upgrade (which removed some of the flight deck to install vertical exhaust stacks) can no longer accomodate the Jayhawk (the smaller MH-65C Dolphin is used on the cutters).

The main picture shows a port/front view of the Jayhawk. Some of the features you can see from this angle are the two large external fuel tanks below the doors, the nose-mounted sensors and the tilted main rotor (it tilts forward 3 degress).

The next picture is a straight-on front view. The winch can be seen on the starboard side, near the intake to the turbine, and you can also see the tilt in the tail rotor.



The next picture is a starboard/front view, which gives you a pretty good look at the forward landing gear. You can also see the smaller, starboard-side fuel tank (it has to be smaller so that there is room for the winch and basket).



Next is a port/rear view that show the fuel tanks pretty well once again, along with the rear wing and the rear landing gear.



The following composited picture shows the Jayhawk rescuing a kayaker in the Bering Sea.



Finally, we have a "family portrait", showing the Jayhawk along with my 1:65 MH-65C Dolphin and 1:65 HC-130 Hercules waiting on the tarmac of the Coast Guard Air Station at Kodiak, Alaska.

These are really fantastic! I can't wait to see the Hamilton completed, you have a nice collection of Coast Guard models so far :D

Quoting sam the first matt, any chance of a 'Coast Guard Air Station at Kodiak, Alaska' 4x4 all terrain unit? like a jeep, of land cruiser, or land rover.
That's something I might consider doing as part of a larger scene, i.e. if I were to do a diorama of the Kodiak air station. At this scale, most vehicles would be just 4 studs wide (a large truck might be 5 studs wide).

Quoting Nick Barrett Excellent work, and impressively realistic and accurate.
Quoting Parrington Levens great sculpting.
Thanks, guys.

Quoting Jack Riveorput Awesome.
Quoting Kurt MOC Nicely done! You got the shape just right: especially tricky at this scale.
Quoting Achintya Prasad Nice work! The angles look great! Of course, the coloring is bang on :-D
Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Nice collection. The family portrait is excellent!
Thanks, everyone. I am hoping to be able to post some WIP pictures for my big Coast Guard project in 2-3 weeks, but I have some tricky problems to solve, so it is going slowly.

Quoting Henrik Jensen Absolutely beautiful rendering. It's amazing that you've hit the shape so well, the scale, taken into account. I think especially the tail section is really successful. The kink in the tail boom and the tail rotor, is it LEGO- Friends lipstick, which forms the tip of the rotor? Excellent work as always.
Thanks. The tail rotor is actually built from a 1x1 brick with 4 studs, 4 Technic connector pins, and 4 "Shaft 3M" parts (which LDD allows to be colored in a two-tone pattern, much like the Friends lipstick part).

Quoting David Roberts Great work on both the shape and including those distinctive USCG stripes. I like the photoshopped picture of the aircraft hovering over the sea too.
Thanks. For a while, I was considering creating that photoshop'ed picture entire out of LEGO elements (i.e. build the rotor-beaten wave pattern out of LEGO bricks), but decided that it would be too much effort for one picture.

Quoting Rolling bricks Looks fantastic! Well done!
Quoting sam the first fantastic work, as always!!
Quoting Thomas of Tortuga For such a small model, you captured the details very well. Great job!
Quoting Dr. Monster Fantastic MOC. The paint job is great. Very cool looking model, all three are super.
Thanks, guys. Stay tuned -- I'll eventually have some WIP pictures for the cutter project (probably in a few weeks).

Quoting Alex Rode I love the work you put into your presentation. The build is fantastic, you certainly have made your own style. Well done!
Thanks. As far as my presentation style goes, I think it is still evolving as I learn new techniques. It's definitely much better than it was a year ago. Hopefully, it will improve some more over the next year.

Quoting Luke V I really like this. Coast guard creations are some of my favorites and this is really good for its size!!! Great job and I have a suggestion for your Coast Guard collection you have. It is a ship, but a smaller one compared to your big Coast Guard vessel. It is a Marine Protector Class Coastal Patrol Boat. Here is a link for more details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_Protector-class_coastal_patrol_boat
Thanks. I hadn't previously looked at the Marine Protector class, but I might consider it in the future. A smaller ship class that I definitely do plan to build at some point is the Sentinel class (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentinel_class_cutter).

Quoting matt rowntRee Freakin' awesome! A five wide Jayhawk with detail and distinction. Love the tilt of the rear rotor and the ladybug. Clever. The angled tips on the main are perfect. Phenomenal work on a tiny scale!
Thanks. As it turns out, 5-wide is just a little too wide at this scale (by about the width of a plate), but going to an integer number of studs for the width simplified a lot of things, and I think the proportions still look pretty good. I nearly pulled my hair out working out some of the details, like the tail, but some of them just came together on my first try, like the forward landing gear. The rotor tilt was something I didn't initially plan on including, but I saw the opportunity to do it after re-working the tail rotor several times (and it has the added bonus of making it easier for the tail rotor to clear the rear wing).

Quoting clayton Marchetti WOW! This is too cool! I love the windshield pieces . Awesome shaping of the fuselage and tail especially where it goes from white to red . I also love the way you achieved the diagonal red stripe. This ship is going to be spectacular .
Thanks. The red Coast Guard stripes were a detail that I definitely wanted to include, but initially I wasn't sure if I could make them diagonal (with the Dolphin, I made the stripe vertical for simplicity). Then, all of a sudden, a light went on in my head and I changed the design of the tail boom, making it stronger and allowing for the diagonal stripes.

Quoting Tom Simon Love it! And with "pieces" like this, the full ship you mentioned before should be scrumptious. The ordering is fine too. Don't want to get burned out and start skimping after a monster hull, but no decorations to go on it.
Thanks. And, yes, I know what you mean about "skimping" at the end of a big build. It's all too easy to get lazy and kick something out the door before it's really ready.
