1/72 USMC "Deuce" Mojave In-Box pic .

  • Hi everyone , I got this Special Hobby CH-37C "Deuce USMC" Mojave in the mail today and I thought I would post an In-Box pic of what's inside . This version has the lower tail planes on each side of the rear fuselage , however there are no holes in the fuselage for the correct location of the tail planes , the instructions show the tail planes in line with one of the fuselage panel lines . Anyway I like the look of the kit , a little expensive but I'm glad I bought her . Smile [:)]

                                                      Kind regards John .

  • John, I have the Army version of the kit and it has both types of stabilizers on the sprues, imagine yours is the same.  Here is the best side view I have of a Marine aircraft to show the location and arrangement of the movable stabilizers, looks like they have relaxed to the hover position on this one.

Thanks again for the pic .

  • I saw one built a couple of weeks ago.  It was a quick job without a great deal of attention to fit abnd finish so it was fairly easy to see where there may be problems.  The biggest thing that I noticed was a bit of a fit problem around the cockpit glass; otherwise, it seemed to be a decent kit.
