  1. Steven...Beautifully done Sea King, nice detail and I like the folded blades.

  2. Steven .. I wish my family could see the different colors of the water around a carrier .. I was an LSE aboard the USS Tarawa, bring aboard the "Sea King" and UH-34's ... a lot of running to get to the next bird, after landing one .. BUT good duty ... I once brought aboard a Army Chinook, and the pilot "gave" the task to the I***T co-pilot, who promptly drifted too far over and took off several radio masts on the tower ! The bird sat for a few days, while a replacement crew came on ! GREAT build ,, a TRUE modelers' attest to detail ! GREAT color scheme ...

  3. Steven .. my "hats off to you ' as a flight deck director .. you guy have a heck of a job .. BUT always do a professional one .. IF you are like me CAN still see, in your mind, the way a chopper comes in, and slowly sets down !

  4. thanks for the nice comments guys and Ray you know what its like landing helos never forget it Those good ole days

  5. Another fantastic build, Steven!

  6. I was a "Golden Falcon" in HS-2 from 1980 - 1983 deploying aboard USS Ranger. I was an Aviation Ordnanceman 3rd and 2nd Class Petty Officer then and a plane captain too. Many flights and many good times. Had the tough times of watching A/C 610 crash in the Western Pacific one night. All survived but we were not having the best of evenings for sure. Good job on your model, brought back many long forgotten memories. Thank you.
