CH-64 Skycrane plans/info

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

 

Fairly new here so apologies if this has been done before.

 

I'm looking for any and all info on the CH-64 Skycrane. Any scaled plans, drawings etc that you're aware of? Anyone on this forum who has connections with this majestic helicopter? Maybe a flying R/C model kicking around?

 

I'd like to look into building one in 1/35, yes 1/35 scale and could do with some referance material, photos are great but drawings give dimension.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Have you seen the 1/48 build by Philippe Dognon?  I can still remember the in progress pictures he would post.  Wasn't it Erickson that purchased  manufacturing rights to the CH-64?  I want to say if requested they will provide some of their drawings.

Erickson bought the type certificate and manufacturing rights to the S-64 and remanufactured many retired military CH-54s, mostly for firefighting (water bombing).
