Review:

In the first quarter of 2006 Academy/MRC released a brand new model for the Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion, the heavy weight helicopter currently in service with the USMC.

The 8 sprues with about 260 parts (7 in a light gray, 1 transparent) contain details for the outside and inside. As it is a new tooling the quality of the sprues is very high with almost not flash.

A nice feature is the option to open up the rear cargo ramp and have a look at the cargo area all the way up to the nicely detailed cockpit. The mainrotor is a "kit on its own" and allows you to show the rotorblades in folder or unfolded position.

You get 2 large decalsheets with markings and stencilling for following three aircraft:

  • CH-53E, BuNo. 161541, CJ/08, HMH-461 "Ironhorse", Operation Iraqi Freedom
  • CH-53E, BuNo. 162483, YK/07, HMH-466, MCAS Tustin CA, 1980s
  • CH-53E, BuNo. 161184, EN/04, HMH-464, MCAS New River NC, 1990s

Out of the box this beast can turn into a real beauty. However several aftermarket companies released alternative markings and super detail sets.
