Default Giant Sikorsky HH-52 Seaguard Helicopter first flight

Scale: 1:6
Shell: Available from Red Lodge Helicopters
Mechanics: Vario
Turbine: Wren 50 heli turbine running on paraffin
Many custom made framework and internals.

The HH-52 was the U.S. Coast Guard’s first turbine-powered helicopter and the first that could land in the water next to vessels or personnel in distress without using awkward floats, making it the most effective air-sea rescue helicopter of its time. The Coast Guard operated ninety-nine HH-52s between 1962 and 1989, saving 15,000 lives.
