the 1/48 scale CH-53E from Academy. It is actually my first ever 1/48
helicopter. It took me about half a year to complete. The model was painted with
Mr Color lacqers and acrylics, and weathered with an oil wash. Some scratch
building was done to create wiring and cabling for the rotor head and the
payload. But apart from that, it is mostly out of the box, including the decals.

model is extremely huge once complete and takes up a great deal of display
space. This could easily take the title of one of the biggest 1/48
helicopters around! You can visit my blog at this
more photos and a more detailed description of this model. Feel free to comment
Hope you enjoy the photos!
