This is a scratchbuilt diorama depicting Sea King SH-3D ser. no. 152711 on her way to pick up the crew of Apollo 11. Helicopter is the Fujimi kit.

OUTSTANDING! If I built it - the windows would have traces of glue all over them.

Super job!

Nice effect on the tail rotor. I assume you customized that.

Thank you both.

The tail rotor is to be replaced by one from Prop Blur, photoetched feathered blades, that are beautiful. If you look at pictures of a heli, the main rotor is usually frozen, the tail rotor is the only one that appears to be turning, which I'm sure you know, I was lazy, and ordered a set, rather than photoetch my own.

Very nice... I guess "abandon chute" is a better slogan than "abandon hope" (ha!)
