CH-53E Super Stallion
(Academy - Nr. 12209)
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:
Out of the box this beast can turn into a real beauty. However several aftermarket companies released alternative markings and super detail sets.
