2 new 1/35 CH-54 Tarhe's
Posted by GlennH on Monday, February 7, 2022 1:39 PM

According to "modeling News" site. ICM models. Having seen them up close hauling 155 ammo I would love one of these to build. Thing is I can never seem to find much of what this Modeling News site posts available. At least not at the two online places I usually buy from.

Have had the great fortune to be on every side of the howitzers.

It's on the cover of their new catalog, so that looks like a commitment...

The question is where to put it when it's done? And where to take the money from?

Have a nice day

ICM has a few more 1/35, 1/32, and 1/48 helos coming as well.

I went through their catalog this morning and there's some cool stuff coming along with the helos there's a 1/48 Sally.  Worth a look, though I've not done an ICM kit - how are they?

As for the Tarhe - that should be a big monster.  I wish someone would do a 1/48 kit.  Been waiting for LoneStar to release his 1/72 fire fighter conversion but understand he's offline for a bit.

Maybe some one will do an S-64 firefighter conversion for this moster 1/35 bird

Thanks,

John

That's great news!  Finally, a decent kit in the correct scale of this very important aircraft.

Anyone know of a good outlet for the models from this company? I usually buy from Hobby Linc or Scale Hobbyist but maybe I'm missing a place that stocks more new stuff.

One I snapped hauling ammo to 101st FSB

They look to be well represented at those sites.  Poking around the Tarhe won't be available til Q3 so put on the xmas list.

Thanks,

The rotor area will be the size of a pizza!  That be huge - coming from a guy who just got an Airfix Vulcan.

I don't want to be the guy who cries it's the wrong scale etc, so I'll just grab a chair and ready some popcorn.

I'll keep an eye out then. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two offerings other than the payload.

I'm curious how long before somebody pumps out a 1/35 Skycrane pod.  I know they weren't successful, but they look cool in a 60's sci fi way and I wants one.
