Only via Ebay or FB auction groups.  Revell did a SSP back in 2010. Nothing since.

LEM issued a 1/144 kit in 2014. http://lemkits.com/product/1-144-ch-54b-tarhe/

The Tamiya 1/100 kit was re-released a few years back.
It's very nice.

The Revell 1/72 kit I have is really old, scalemates says the first time it was released was in 1968

Yup. It is an antique all right.

@ Jon:  thanks for the Tamyia pointer to the 1/100 kit

The new issue of Helicopter Association International's Rotor magazine has a photo article on fire-fighting helicopters with some beautiful shots of civil Skycranes active in this effort.

Found this posted on the Erickson Facebook page. I wonder if there is an unsolicited proposal sitting on someone's desk?
