  1. No idea if it was posted here before, but today I found this picture labeled: CH-53A Sea Stallion 151690 US 1973 Nice to see the camera ball there :)
  2. I wrote to Reskit asking about MH-53J conversion for the upcoming Academy rebox of Fujimi kit. And also for some MAWS and ALQ-157 IR jammers, to use on USAF and Navy Navy/Marines birds. We will see ...
  3. Which fuel tanks could carry HH-53B (or MH-53J converted from HH-53B) airframes with the support struts ? And so far I was able to find and write down: Fuel tanks in kits: 1:72 Fujimi/Academy RH-53D/CH-53D - "early" 450-gal F-105 style + "intermediate II" 650-gal Fujimi MH-53J - Italeri/Revell MH-53J - "late" 650-gal Bilek CH-53A/D - "intermediate I" 650-gal Revell CH-53E - "late" 650-gal 1:48 Revell HH-53C - "intermediate II" 650-gal, CH-53GA - "intermediate II" 650-gal + "late" 650-gal, CH-53GS_G - "late" 650-gal Academy CH-53E - "late" 650-gal
  4. So I guessed right that no kit in any scale was produced with the struts, correct ?
  5. OK. And, now I know it is 69-5795, can you share some pics of this specific airframe ? Or PM for personal usage ? Thing is I have two pics from the crash and this helo had white invasion stripes but your profile does not show them. Maybe you have different pics ? Thanks !
  6. HA, thanks for the explanation :) I will correct my pages ASAP. Btw, any chance thinking to add instruction sheets on your site ? Even in low-res ? Thanks !
  7. Yeah, but not on the sand/brown profile, which is I guess incorrect ? As it was converted HH-53B... EDIT: Is there even kit in any scale with those sponson struts ?
  8. Great to see another sheet wtih Gulf war content in it :) That 66-14432 is from HH-53B, but as I can not see the sponson braces in the side profile, is that correct ? And one more question. I have info that this specific airframe was in Gulf untill 09/1990 only, and judging by the pics it had light grey undersides. If it was discussed there, can you point me to right directions ? I only have one pic of this specific airframe in sand/brown/grey camo. Thanks !
  9. Hi gents, couple of pics appeared today on Military Helicopters FB site, including 633, so here they are for you collection. No idea of the source, copyright etc.
  10. Hi gents, great thread, again ! Regarding that 58-0195: From downloaded xls file (and updated by me with nose art and other important info), I have this info: the plane had PDM input on 26-XI-84 and output on 6-IV-85 with Strategic camo, and next scheduled PDM was on IV-89 the plane had PDM input on 10-IV-89 and output on 7-XI-89 with "wraparound camo" which was in that time FS 36081 Gunship Dark Grey Yes, I have various pics on my site with various variations of nose art, it is really not so easy to tell which version was when sometimes.
  11. Both pics are great :) Yeah, mix and match and fly :) Simple task ....
  12. Thanks for the updated info Gunny !! Still waiting for the CH-53E metal tail blade dimension :) And, for some BuNo/MODEX confirmations for "our" site .... Thanks !
  13. Another new pic emerged. Again from 1991, this one shows HMH-466 CH-53E 161386/YK-53 with "61" (no idea of the BuNo) in the middle and unknown in the back. Interestning is that "53" has probably the EAPS for his 3rd engine from some other airframe, probably from some in sand/brown camo ... The pic is postwar, but where ? Thanks !
  14. Still waiting for those dimensions ;-) Jakub
