AMP Sikorsky R-5/S-51 USAF Rescue Helicopter 1:48

  • Plastic short run style model kit with a decent sheet of photo-etch [ not just seat belts ! ]. For the experienced builder- this is not a Tamiya kit, it does not build itself ! Four decal options including an all yellow RCAF machine.

Very nice short run style model for the experienced rotor-head ! Four decal options are included: USAF,RAAF,JGSDF [ Japanese ] & RCAF. The RCAF chopper is serial 9603 & and is noted as being in an all yellow scheme, probably rescue. This bears some research as a quick look on google shows this aircraft in an all natural metal or grey scheme & also reveals that it has been preserved in the American Helicopter Museum in Pennsylvania, USA in that scheme.

Obviously, this aircraft did serve in an all yellow scheme as LF Decals has issued a well researched decal sheet [LFMC48172] clearly showing 9603 in that livery. You will find this decal sheet also listed on our site. The roundel given in this AMP kit conforms to the roundel in the b&w image of 9603 that I include with this listing, yet that scheme does not look yellow to me. As with many long-serving machines, 9603 may have had a few changes of paint in it's service career. The image of 9601 that I have included may be close to how 9603 looked at some time in it's life.

A neat kit & a great subject. I have just listed it on our website & already I am compelled to research it further ! Fascinating stuff !
