Very nice. Kit and scale?

Me thinks 1/72 Airfix/MPC kit. He has it tagged as Fujimi but I still guess 1/72.

You don't see a non-Navy bird built everyday.

Thanks, all. Yes, it's the 1/70th Fujimi Sea Sprite. A nice old kit, but the scale goof and horrid windscreen really make a fail.

I was building it as a Navy companion for my YSH-2E, but a painting accident ended up in a what-if scheme.


Back story??

The USAF insisted on twin engines for their mid-range rescue & logistics support helo,

Bell's 212 / xH-1N was blackballed for the Canadian engine pack and associated Viet Nam politics.

USAF had a good relationship with Kaman via the H-43's, so Kaman got the contract.
