CH-46E "Bull Frog"
(Academy - Nr. 2226)
In 2004 Academy/MRC made us modelers happy with a brand new CH-46E Sea Knight in scale 1/48. It is a very nice kit with fine details however some of the recessed panel lines are too wide giving it a toyish look. The rivets are there but recessed instead of raised. Nice feature, it has parts reflecting the inner cabin walls, floor and ceiling as separate pieces.
The large decalsheet contains markings for 3 different versions:
The first one has the distinctive green paint scheme seen on all Presidential helicopters while the other 2 are in the camo of Light Ghost Gray FS 36375 with some sections painted Medium Gray FS 35237.
Productnumber of this kit is 2226.
