"But, I will rescue you on that day, declares the LORD!
Italeri 1/72nd scale HH-53C "Super Jolly Green Giant"
Here’s my HH-53C CSAR helicopter. It’s a kit bash of the ancient Italeri & MPC (Airfix) kits. I built this for a friend who flew HH-53 CSAR missions in Vietnam; later, he became a USAF Chaplain.
AND the stinger!
The figure was the lovely & gracious Mrs Tucker’s suggestion since “only a geeks’ geek has any notion of what "1 inch = 6 feet" means.“ I’m not much of a figure painter as you can see, but he does give a good visual as to how big this beast really is!
The emblems came from the local airbase exchange. (I’m retired military, so I can shop there. Uniform stuff is available online.) The trophy shop down the street did the placards.
The Italeri kit is pretty ragged, but I’m pleased how it turned out.
But I will rescue you on that day, declares the LORD; you will not be given into the hands of those you fear. Jeremiah 39v17
