MRC 1/48 scale Ch-53

Does anyone have any advance word on this? I saw the ad for it on the back
cover of the latest FSM. It says it's highly detailed but I've heard that
from manufacturers before. Has anyone got any definitive info on this
(hopefully) soon to be released kit?

From what I understand, it's to be released this month. I had one pre-ordered from GreatModels.com but cancelled it as I'm a bit strapped for cash at this moment. There'll be plenty of chances for me to get one - or two.

Spoke to Bob Lewen at Academy regarding some of the IPMS Reviews posted and aasked about the copter. He said the general release will be June. Full interior with the inside skin like the CH-47 and similiar detail. Will be pretty nice I think

Us lovers of the MH-53 received news of this release with mixed feelings. We're glad to see the -53 series being recognized. On the other hand, however, the question arises, "Are they going to do the MH-53 Pave Low later? It is a veteran of many wars, lesser conflicts and contingencies.
I'd really hate to spend $70+ (at a discount) to get this kit and then proceed to cut it up and cut up a Revell H-53 just to get the interior and folding tail (which in itself would need some work to backdate it to the Pave Low). I've already invested plenty of money getting the Cobra/High Flight resin sets to convert the Revll kit to the Pave Low. I'll probably buy one to do the Pave......... but I'd hate to do it just for parts. MRC / Academy? Any chance of getting an MH-53?????????????

I will second that. I am gearing up to do a series of AF special aircraft, and looking at what is offered. I will have to wait and see what comes down the pike for this ofering.

'' Wonder how much Sikorsky added to the cost...... ''
I checked the Web-Site and it says it is going for like $89.00. Now i'm guessing that Sikorskys ''cut'' has got to add to the price by atleast $20.00 or more.
Should only be costing us about $55.00 to $65.00 But thanks to ''Good Old Sikorsky'' it goes waaaaaaay UP to around $90.00
'' Booooo '' -&- '' Hissssss '' on Sikorsky :(

Boo and Hiss are mild compared to what I'd say to them and their little lawyer too!
