Wow, amazing! I love the minigun and the M2! You should make a dio with this and have some Army guys repelling onto the ground (Or Black Hawk DOwn). Anyways, great job!
Exactly, that's what I was thinking: Rangers or Delta coming down from the chopper. And this build was indeed inspired by one of my fav. movies: BlackHawk Down.

Great design, as I have pointed out with other peoples Blackhawks the hardest part to design and actually create (because of the limited curved slopes available) is the windshield/nose area and you have nailed it! Also like the fact that you incorporated the hinged cabin windshield for access and the sliding rear doors. LOVE IT
Thanks. It was quite a challenge for me and indeed one of the main tasks I set for myself: to convey the flow of the UH-60 shape.

There are, however, a few things that I don't like...
Thank you for your input Mad Phy... hmm, I mean Ralph.
I don't think there is a more valuable opinion about modeling helicopters then yours. I'll try to take you advice where I can. The only thing I would argue about is front landing gear. IMHO, I don't see a more suitable solution to recreate this:
Another point in the defense of this approach is that it's important for me to build a model that is suitable not only for display but also for light-to-medium play. So, two points connection helps to absorb the shock should a kid actually drop the chopper.
