Does anyone know of kits that size?  I'd like to put it on the helipad.

Thanks,

Dave

Hi,

Although not really a "kit" Shapeways does have a handful of 1/200 scale helos that you might be able to use, including an A109, an EC-350, and an Osprey.

There's a company named L'Arsenal that sells a lot of naval accessories in various metric scales. Highly recommended. I looked and they don't have helicopters in the scale, basically because neither the Yamato or Bismark did, but they have a LOT of Photo Etch railings, stairs and ladders, both kit specific and generic. That could really add to your model.

Also check out Shapeways. They have a super eclectic product line, basically they connect needs with resources in the 3D printing world. They add new stuff on almost a daily basis.

Good luck

I bought a set of 1/200 PE railings from Gold Medal Models.  I've read that the railings included with the kit can leave you short.  Thanks for the link.  I'll check it out.

Hi;

   I do hope you will let us in on the build . It is a monster box full of parts . But it can be unusual and beautiful for what it is . I just wish I could've gotten the Giant excavator and further back , the Nuclear reactor .  Oh Well .  T.B.

Helicopters that usually go to Northsea rigs are S-92, S-61,  EC225 and in olden daze the Bell 212. 

Hope that helps.

Not a complete list by any means. Google offshore helicopter types and hit images.

Actualy I doubt you can find a S-92 or a Puma / EC225 but you may be able to find a Sea King with would resemble a S-61 so much at that scale that with an  civilian paint scheme no one would notice.
