Browsing the "evil-bay" as one does to keen an eye out for 53 stuff I ran into this little gem......with announcement of the 3d printed Seaking I guess it was only a matter of time.  But $800 USD....ouch


I wonder how "rough" the parts are and how easy or difficult it would be to build up.  Even in 1/48th scale the Academy is a scratch builders dream its so darn big.  I have two CH-47's now.  One in 1/48th and one on 1/35th.  I also bit the bullet and got the 1/35th CH-54 from ICM......big helo's

About 15 years ago there was an announcement about the CH 53 but sadly it went nowhere until this.

Love to see more on this like interior, cockpit And rotorhead.

i agree $800 is a bit much but resin is expensive and designing this might be as well.

If it was a MH-53J or MH-53M I'd save my allowance and hide it from the wife.

CONCUR 100%.......and I would have to hide it as well......

Just throw it in the back of the pickup (or 5 ton) and keep driving around town (or base).  I am thinking of building a "tool shed" in a corner of the back yard, knowing my wife will probably never enter it.
