Just wandering, what is the color for USCG orange? I'd like to have a Coast Guard bird. The HH-65 might be a good start. Nice web site with tons of photos.Thanks.

Hey guys,

Anyone seen "Bad Boys II" yet? Some great footage of the new HH-68s the Coast Guard is using. They're even correctly referred to as the "Sharks". Anyone heard of a model kit of the A109 that they're based on?

Hi Jon,

The only A109 I have seen in kit form is the 1:72 as made by Revell. Unfortunately, the kit is the A109K2 as it is being used by Swiss mountain rescue organisation Rega, and not the Power-version as used by the USCG.

The correct color for CG orange is International Orange. PollyS used to make a CG orange but I haven't seen it around for a while.
Revell of Gemany got the molds for the old Matchbox 365N Dauphin in 1/72, much easier to modify to the HH65A/B/C than the Trumpeter kit.

My bad,

They are MH-68s not HH-68s as I originally posted. There's a good article on the "Sharks" in World Airpower Review's Winter 2002 issue. A bit steep at the $20 cover price, but the coverage is fantastic for a quarterly magazine.

Would certainly make an interesting model, especially with an M-82 sniper rifle in the back seat!
