Can someone give me the abriged version of what this Sikorsky thing is
all about? I've heard references to it, and am under the impression
that Sikorski threatened legal action against those using its
corporate name for Ebay auctions (???)
That's essentially it, yes. If you're interested, the post that brought
it to everyone's attention can be found here:
I think it's a silly position for Sikorsky to take, but I don't live in
the USA so there might be some nuance that I'm missing...
Sounds reasonable BUT I didn't use their name and others selling the
same kit and using the Sikorsky name have not heard from the landshark.
First time out when I ran into trouble I had the kit listed as "1/72
Skycrane Helicopter Kit by Revell GmbH". This last time I listed it as
"1/72 CH-53A Army Helicopter Kit by Revell".
If Skycrane was the problem I can find many magazine articles referring
to the helicopter that way. Also I have some pics from the Australian
government that were posted on a.b.p.av. with that name in the title.

hmmm, 70's vibe, Little Feat, National Lampoon talking about such a chapeau
to prevent absorbing moon rock radiation, Reuben and the Jets sang about
"White port and lemon juice, sure tastes good to me." Probably some east
coasts oldies station
