  1. I think the rotor hub assembly needs to be completely scrapped and a new aftermarket one made to replace it. Rich
  2. I was on the first SH-60B detachment to forward deploy to Atsugi from North Island in July of 1988 on USS Curts. The fold sequence for the most part was not complicated since both the stab and tail were manually folded. The main rotor was another story, prone to issues. You had to use a GSE "Yellow Gear" box to fold the blades, since they had to be indexed to the correct position prior to fold. Take note that each blade had an assigned color...I think they were blue, yellow red and black, but my memory fails me on that. You had to fold everything up to get it in the han
  3. Only the prototype had the white over gray scheme. Note, I have been working on the Bravo....and there are some small issues with the instructions with regard to which holes to open both on the floor of the cabin and on the fuselage halves. I recommend you study the parts very carefully as you go. One part I did not find in the kit was the lower IRCM mount. I suspect this is included in the upcoming Romeo, but should have been included in the Bravo kit as well. Also, the RAST equipment/probe in the cabin is not found in the kit. Essential for small deck operations.

    P-3c Orion

    Pete, I wrote the Squadron/Signal book with Rick Burgess and I did a profile of a early VP-45 P-3. Have the old logo in Illustrator and everything. I do not like the later "Angry Pelican". I like the old one much better. Rich
