Following on from my liking of the Westland Wessex I thought I’d go back to the original Sikorsky design and its use by the US Navy. I really like modelling Fleet Air arm aircraft, but also have a soft spot for US Navy types as well.
The base model is the Hobbyboss UH-34A Choctaw model, which in itself is a worthy rival to the Italeri/Revell versions. The kit makes up very well and to my eye looks accurate enough.
The colour scheme is one found in Printscales H-34 decal release as the kit version is really lacking in maintenance stencils, so typical of the type is US service.
Overall I very happy with the completed model and glad to share.
