  3. This is my second Sikorksy SH-60 build to go along with my SH-60F (I will also be building an MH-60R Strikehawk using the Olimp conversion set.) This one is the Hasegawa SH-60B kit. This is an old Hasegawa tooling, but it went together well with no real issues, other then my own doing. I used the Eduard interior. Mine was an old boxing so the kit decals were a bit "stale". I found a set of the Hobby Boss SH-60B decals which worked well except for more silvering then I am used to dealing with on modern decals. So here it is: Next up is the Testors/Fujimi SH-3H Seaking Enjoy

  5. This is an S-64F. Originally built by Sikorsky as a CH-54B for the US Army (Serial on this one was 69-18473). As an interest Erickson Air-Crane in 1992 purchased the the type certificate and manufacturing rights from Sikorsky. They have made over 1300 changes to the original design. Pics thanks to Scimitar and his road trip for the pictures.

  10. Sikorski JRS-1 Updgrade Set (72642) 1:72 Eduard The Eduard boxing of the JRS-1 is already a pretty complete package, however if you want to add even more detail then this handy upgrade set that will do just that. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. The set has one brass fret. Starting in the cockpit there are new pilot seats, with arm rests, and new two part control wheel. New handles are provided for the main opening window, and additional parts for the nose wheel bay. Wiring harnesses are provided for the engines. New parts are provided for the main gear openings, and various hull fittings. Tie downs/ups are provided for the wing floats, and finally on top of the main wing various hatches and openings are provided. Recommended to bring something extra to your JRS-1 whether the Sword or Eduard boxing. Review sample courtesy of

  13. Hi all. Here are some pics of my latest build, it's Airfix's old (but still good) CH-53 built as an S-65 of the IDF/AF as she would have been seen in her early service life around the 1970 mark, they were delivered in the late 60's in this attractive scheme and re-painted in the more boring scheme they wear today in the 80's. The kit is straight from the box but with the addition of decals from Print Scale. Makes an interesting bedfellow for my recent Iranian RH-53! Anyway here are some pic's, there are more in the build log here:- http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234997643-airfix-172-ch-53s-65-double-build-iran-and-israel/ Thanks for looking, and all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Thanks for looking. Cheers. Craig.
  14. Hi, what scale is a Sea King helicopter from Heller Humbrol Bobcat / Bobkit? Not Airfix tooling but snap fit from Heller mould. Is it 1/72 like their Super Puma Cougar and other Bobkit kits (Transall, OH-6, Harrier T4, F-16 and Phantom) or is out of scale? Thanks
  15. Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King. This is a UH-3H 152700, converted to the transport role by removing the ASW gear. Pics thanks to Ken, taken at The Pacific Aviation Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii.
  16. HH-60M of The Florida Army National Guard. They fly 4 different aircraft types from Cecil Field in Jacksonville, Florida. The HH-60M Medivac is the newest version. Their aircraft have the upturned exhausts and the downturned rotor tips, glass cockpit, FLIR, and modern avionics. When in theatre, they were fitted with sand filters on the intakes, but are removed when they come home. Photographed in late 2014, just after a return home. Pics thanks to DL Munne.
  17. Sikorsky VS-44 Flying Boat Classic Aircraft in Profile Igor I. Sikorsky's VS-44A was a large transport aircraft with a wingspan of 124 feet, an overall length of about 80 feet and a gross weight of 57,500 pounds. It was powered by four Pratt & Whitney Twin-Wasp radial engines that produced a combined 4,800 horsepower for take-off and a cruise speed of about 210 miles per hour. Her nonstop range, depending on load and the quantity of fuel, was approximately 4,000 miles, which was unmatched performance for the time. In the summer of 1940 American Export Airline (AEA) ordered three VS-44A's at a total cost of $2,100,000. These aircraft were dubbed the "Flying Aces" by AEA and named the Excalibur, Excambian and Exeter. AEA advertising boasted minimum vibration, maximum sound-proofing, individual sofas, full length beds, roomy dressing rooms, full galley for serving hot meals, snack bar service, attractive lounge and smoking room, proper heating and ventilation and more square foot area per passenger. No other contemporary aircraft had these luxuries. AEA signed a contract with the Naval Air Transport Service to operate a wartime trans-Atlantic route in January, 1942. On May 26 the Excalibur made the maiden nonstop flight from New York to Foynes, Ireland and on June 20 regular round trip service began. The Flying Aces proved to be the world's longest range airliners and set record after record. They were the only aircraft capable of flying nonstop across the North and South Atlantic at full payload in excess of 3,100 miles. This new book from Henry E. Pember is a beautifully written book which not provides much insight into the building and operating of the aircraft, but also the characters involved throughout their use. The archive photographs are evocative of the era and the narrative is highly informative. The book starts with a brief history of Igor Sikorsky and his company, takes a look at the VS-44s predecessors the VS-41 to VS-43 and the Flying Dreadnought, the XPBS-1, which was eventually modified to emerge as the VS-44. For the modeller there are some superb detailed photographs of every part of the aircraft, particularly the cockpit, seating and sleeping areas, the engines, some with some or all of their cowls removed, galley, floats and beaching gear. There are also a number of drawings showing the internal plans complete with notes telling the reader what is what. Addition photographs show the aircraft in civil and military use, along with some of the famous people and the air stewardesses who flew in them. Then there are the accidents and the history of the remaining aircraft through the various companies who owned her right up to its current rebuilding and restoration at the hands of a dedicated band of volunteers at the New England Air Museum. The book ends with a brief synopsis of the end of Sikorsky flying boat designs and the introduction to the world of Helicopters. At the back of the book there are a set of plans for the VS-44A and the XPBS-1, followed by some archive colour photographs first of the original air tickets, wartime posters, post war use and restoration. The last two pages and back cover show the different colour schemes the aircraft wore throughout her time in service. Conclusion This is certainly not my usual genre for bedtime reading, but this is such a wonderfully well written book, it was almost as if the author was talking directly to me. This narrative and the wonderful, and very interesting photographs, the plans and colour plates make this a must have for those interested in aviation history in general and/or flying boats in particular. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
