Patrick modeled Academy’s 1/48 scale CH-46 Sea Knight
as a Canadian Forces CH-113 Voyageur, adding a rangefinding antenna below the
nose and applying Canadian markings from Belcher Bits. “I chose this aircraft
because my father was the maintenance officer in the 450 Squadron,” he says.
“This particular aircraft was on a return flight from Edmonton, Alberta, when
it caught fire at 5,000 feet. The pilot landed safely, but the aircraft burned
to its axles.”
