Anybody know of a kit of this delightfully ugly helecopter? I would absolutly love one!
One of the truely least modeled subjects............ helicopters.:cry:
Maybe if we ask alot someone will fix that.
Oh..... I haven't seen a model of the Mojave... sorry.
I have a vac-u-formed 1/72 scale model of it from the '80s. 90% completed, only 90% more to go to finish it. Those who build vac-u-formed models will understand.
By the way, the rotors and transmission are the basis of the highly successful H-53 series.
The Mohave validates one of the definitions of an early helicopter: 100,000 loose parts, flying in close formation. With twin row, PW R-2800 radials in each pod, plus the associated gear boxes, torque converters and drive shafts --it was a truly mechnanical monster. The first of the heavy lift helicopters, it could carry a jeep, 75 mm howitzer and crew.
Looking at the cockpit-windows I think it's already made of cardboard :mrgreen:
Do you have plans of it?
I'll do some lookin around and see what I ca find. there have got to be some blueprints somewhere!
I can do this model, I think. Take a look at my OH-6A: http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=163598
I think I'll be buying that later today. here are some resources I have found on the CH-37
lots of pics
specs and 3 view on the right side of the page
Schemes............ USMC!!!! They put eyeballs on the front of each pod!
Can you imagine seeing that thing coming at you...........:thumb:
Great site Nate...................Thanks!
This one would raise the cool factor, especially with the eyes!
Yeah, the eyes would be great! If anybody couldn't tell, I'm kind of into crazy helecopters. I would love to have this one with an interior too.
Thank you, n810!
I'm starting to collect information about it.
Fantastic! I await eagerly!
That thing is OOOOGLY!
OH MY GOD.....i wondered what they fed it.......jeeps !
NOM! NOM! NOM! NOM!!!
Why as a matter of fact, that is exactlly what they fed them. :twisted: (pics I took from the museum at Fort Rucker, Al.)
Separate names with a comma.
