1:72 Hobby Boss CH-46 A/D - "...The Last Eleven Are Out."
Posted by TigerII on Friday, February 23, 2024 11:23 PM

A simple of depiction of the morning of April 30, 1975, as a lone CH-46 from HMM-164, code named "Swift 2-2" lands on the rooftop of the US Embassy in Saigon in response to radio calls from the remaining US Marine Embassy Detachment. At 7:53am it lifts off after MSgt J.J. Valdez becomes the last Marine to board the chopper. It's pilot announces over the radio "Flight Command, this is Swift 2-2, the last eleven are out."

The helipad was scratchbuilt from wood and some of the chopper decals are from PrintScale decals. As always all comments and critiques are greatly appreciated.

The helipad markings, many years after the war was over.
