Its not like I don't have enough on my plate as it is, but I seemed to remember someone talking about a vac-form 1/35 CH/MH/HH-53 kit somewhere. Am I making this up? I just saw a pic of one of the Marine Super Stallions in Liberia and would love to build one...

.... after I finish the other six helos I'm workin on.... Dead [xx(]

Yes, there will be a kit. At the moment we are working mostly 12 hours and more a day to get our first kit, the MH-53M Pave Low IV done. And it will not be a Vac-form kit. Due to the level of detail, the MH-53M and all the other variants, will be full resin kits.

Oh man....

This is too cool.

Looks like Christmas is gonna come a tad early this year! I'm trying to envision the sheer size of this kit. Considering the H-53 has a 70' rotor diameter, we're talking HUUUUUGE!! The main rotor is gonna be 2 FEET!!!!!

And CH-46's and plenty of figures on the way as well....

Jon,
Slow down or you'll pop a vein!
I myself will finish my three models on the work bench and then do a spring cleaning, long over due, to make room for my next project. . .

I know it's only rock and roll, but I like it.

Yeah, you may be right Don! Just cleaned up the workshop a bit. The Apaches and Cobras are all nearly finished, and just in time too. The semester starts this week....

I'm shooting for that H-53 over winter break. Should give me plenty of time to get everything else out of the way!
