Last night, I watched Jack Ryan new series on Amazon Prime.

I saw a Coast Guard chopper, I'll add photos I took with Win10's capture tool.

Now I'd like to know the model and if someone makes one in 1/32 or 1/35

Thank you in advance

I assume this would be a good place to start:

But i'm sure there are more knowledgeable forum members who have an idea if there are any special modifications or after-market items needed to make it correct

HH-60 Jayhawk, the Navy version is an SH-60 Seahawk. It's probably a good starting place but you'd need to source/scratch all of the rescue gear.

Paul is correct that it is a USCG MH or HH-60J Jay Hawk. MH is the newer designation. Unfortunately, there is no 1/32 or 1/35 model of one. There is also no 1/32 or 1/35 model of a Navy Sea Hawk to base it on. I scratch/converted one from a UH-60A a while ago. Lots of work.

MH-60J conversion

There are 1/48 and 1/72 Jay Hawks though.

Just to confuse matters a bit....

for the 75th anniversary of the Coast Guard using Helicopters, they painted an MH-60J, in the 1950's orange scheme.

Google Coast Guard H-60 in "images".
Enjoy,

It is/was actually yellow.


Quoted Text

Six MH-60 JAYHAWK helicopters have been repainted to resemble their Coast Guard livery from the 1950s to the 1970s in yellow.

That's cool but not as visible, is it?

I don't know. It looks pretty visible against the blue sky.



Many countries use yellow SAR/Rescue helicopters.
