Shortly after I posted about the Knight Bus appearing on the Coming Soon page, Metal Earth sent out their monthly newsletter with a sneak peek at an upcoming model, the Black Hawk helicopter. And I completely forgot to post anything about it. But then I check things today, and they’ve added an F-14 Tomcat to the coming soon page, which reminded me that I forgot to share about the Black Hawk. So… a little late, but here we are!
As you can see, we still have only the sneak peek photo of the Black Hawk, but we’ve got the full 5-photo array that is common to the Coming Soon listings. And I’d like to point out that the 5 photos show it with both the wings out and wings back configuration. If you zoom in for a close look, you can see that the wings appear to have a pivot hole in the front, with a square “pin” passing through it. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that the wing position is dynamic, as opposed to a choice of how to build it. Very cool! I also like the translucent bluish haze paint job on the model. Very classy.
I would update my checklist with these models, but I’m having some maintenance problems with my checklists which I need to work on fixing. Hopefully that will be resolved soon and I can update the checklists with the results of the last couple of months of new models.
