The Sikorsky S-51 (H-5) is an iconic helicopter that first took flight in 1943. This helicopter was used by the US Airforce, US Navy, and Coast Guard, and was the first helicopter to be used commercially starting operations in 1946. Over 300 Sikorsky S-51 helicopters were produced, and it remains a popular model for enthusiasts and collectors.
This Sikorsky S-51 fuselage comes fully painted and is designed for use with the T-rex 500esp mechanics. While the woodwork is not glued in, some modifications may be possible to use other mechanics. The fuselage is available in two paint scheme options: blue and white for a civilian look, or yellow for a Coast Guard style.
The Sikorsky S-51 fuselage measures 44 inches in length, 12 inches in width, and 13.5 inches in height. The stretched torque tube is included for use with the T-rex 500esp mechanics.
Please note that modeling will be needed to finish the installation of the aircraft mechanics. This Sikorsky S-51 500-size fuselage is perfect for helicopter enthusiasts looking for a high-quality, realistic model of a classic aircraft.
