In the 3rd image, the main LG tires look very unhappy.  ;D

Good Evening Gents! I certainly don't crank out the projects like I use to, but I do finish one here and there. Mr. Fontaine asked if I had finished my Super Stallion with a bite and remembered that I did.... Here she is with two mini gun pods as well as Sidewinders for a little extra kick. Along with that I'm including a real world V-22 that I built as an example of one of the many aircraft we build parts for...Hope y'all are enjoying your evening!

Thank you very much!

The CH-54 lends itself to a wide scope of uses, real or proposed. I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do with your repaired work horse. :)

Eddie, thanks for sharing image of your Sea Stallion with a bite.  I think it was GTX that has wondered aloud about an armed CH-53 and I remembered your project.  V-22 is a nice surprise too.  BZ!

That's beyond awesome, Sailor! The load-out is totally wicked and adding those Sidewinders really takes it to the next level!

It's a treat to see this baby and that V-22 is some real eye-candy too!

Not a WHIF but a great build. Scratch built CH-54B (scale not shared) but what a beauty. I'm guessing 1/32 or 1/35.

It is YUUUUUUGE!  :)

Also very nice to see a larger scale model of the much ignored CH-54 Tarhe.

Using the A4 sheet of paper as reference, the CH-54 scales out at 1/18th approx :smiley:
It's just superb :P :-*
