A friend of mine who has some connections in the helicopter industry dropped this model off at my house today... I assumed it was a plastic kit, but when I opened it I found that it was a solid manufacturers promotional display model. I was able to snap the components together in about ten minutes. Looks good sitting next to my 'puter.

I like it! Anything with "USMC" is OK with me... Must be something like those snap-together airliner models, huh?

Pat:

Exactly, but it's HEAVY... seems to be solid resin. All the stuff just snapped in place like those Wooster airliners. Good enough for a desk display (Too bad they didn't get the markings right... should say MARINES).

Say, does your friend have strong enough "connections" in the helicopter industry to find enough of these display models for all of us ... hmmmm ??? Tongue [:P]

The USAF or Lockheed-Martin have a very cool,large,motorized F-35 model:



The wheels retract and deploy,the fan duct opens and closes,the missile bays open and close,the engine rotates up and down. What scale is that? 1/8?
