A question from an aviation modeller who isn't familiar with armour: are these figures and their equipment contemporary with operations in Somalia (Blackhawk Down) or do they represent a more recent era ?

These are recent era figures. Equipment, weapons, uniforms were different for Somalia.

The Live-Resin pilots are wearing newer HGU-56 helmets, newer Airsafe vests, and two-piece NOMEX flight suits. From a crewman on the mission: "Pilots for Op Gothic Serpent (Somalia 1993) all wore desert sand colored flying suits (one-piece) with a pistol usually on the thigh and their survival vest (unsure what type - most likely Ranger Body Armor or Chicken-Plate body armor) and SPH-4 helmets, personal weapons were MP-5 or M-16 usually." More info on the aircraft and crew for Op Gothic Serpent can be found here at the Aeroscale Rotary Wing Forum.

Not sure what this would cost, but it's almost worth buying for the "diorama in a box" aspect. One stop shopping for the whole thing.

This is a good idea and I would be thrilled if Live Resin decided to go that route. However, knowing the company's intention to go as modern as possible I don't think we'll see "Black Hawk Down" era figures from Live Resin. Mario PS Excuse my ignorance, but are those Kitty Hawk's Little Birds suitable for Somalia campaign?
JUN 01, 2020 - 07:38 PM
Yes, their AH-6J/MH-6J kit (KH50003) was the type used in Somalia in '93. The included decals are for aircraft from Op Gothic Serpent. Again, more info on Somalia Little Birds can be found at this post about them on the Aeroscale Rotary Wing Forum. Lots of helicopter info there.

A bit late for me. I already built mine with the kitty hawk figures. Not so bad.
