Academy 1/48 CH-53E Super Stallion build (dream)
Posted by The Lt387 on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 6:46 PM

So ive targeted my next build....however its apparently extremely difficult to find. So I really have 2 questions...1 Anybody know where I can pick one up? 2. As a decent amateur, what would be a good to excellent, available alternative? Im in CT if that helps.

In 1/48, there are no other options. Revell does a 1/72 CH-53E that may work for you as well.

This may be an option. Monochrome Models out of Japan is re-boxing the Academy MH-53E in JMSDF markings. All you would need to do is get some US Navy markings and you would be good.

I think that Revell made a HH-53C Super Jolly Green kit a few years ago.  Could that work?

Not if he wants to build an E model.  The C and E models are totally different aircraft.  C has two engines, a 6-blade rotor, and straight tail. The E has three engines, a 7-blade rotor, and a slanted larger tail to start.
