Thank you Jim.

Looks awesome Allan, another incredible finish.
Looking back through the GB, I can't believe how much weight was required in the nose - well cast too!
Thank you George, it did not need that much !

Looks great ! I built two of these Italeri kits. I did an "A" in RCN markings and a "B" in American RESCUE markings with floats. Both turned out good. I used Leading Edge decals for the Canadian version and added some scratch built details re. photos. The float was OOB and didn't need any nose weight.
The RCN had 3 of the "A" version for evaluation purposes as far as I know, so the box art is a bit misleading. I don't know of their service duration.
Thank you Phil, show us some pic's !

There is one photo of it in my Count The Maple Leaves contest article, along with an H 34.

Lovely pair Phil, didn't think to look there !

That's a good-looker! When I think of choppers in Korea, all I think of is the MAS*H aircraft! I never realized these larger birds were already flying.
Thank you Greg, and more !

Another famous workhorse in the Sikorsky line.
From the tropics to the Antarctica, it survived anywhere.
Many users, but luckily you did the "Semper Fi" version.
Thanks Dirk, good to hear from you !

Great job on this build, I love the finish on it. Everything looks so sharp and clean, plus the loop antenna, aerial wire and super clear parts...
