Helicopters

Scored three of these for NZD$30 yesterday, a good buy. I got them with my small cold war collection in mind and although they date from the early 1960s they will no doubt feature in a couple of other periods as well. It is similar enough in appearance to the Sikorsky YH-19 to make for a Korean War chopper too, me not being a purist, and I'll try to find enough non-descript decals so they can stand in for either UK or US heavy-lift transports.

  1. I take it that's a good price but at least you get some options with them.

  4. Hmmm I would be tempted to paint it OD, and just give it serial numbers so you could use it as a UK, US, French or SVN helio.
