Sikorsky HH-3E Jully Green Giant / HH-3F Pelican 1/350 Scale
The HH-3E Jolly Green Giant and the HH-3F "Pelican" are variants of the Sikorsky S-61R/SH-3 Sea King. Both the HH-3E, operated by the U.S. Air Force, and the HH-3F, operated by the Coast Guard, were in service from the mid 60s to the late 90s. This 1/350 scale model includes 21 parts and is designed so that the modeler may build either the HH-3E or the HH-3F. A refueling probe is provided for modeling the HH-3E and two versions of radar noses are provided for modeling the HH-3F. A FOD shield is also provided for modeling late model HH-3Es or HH-3Fs. Both the rear and side doors may be assembled open or close, and the landing gear may be modeled extended or retracted. The canopy is printed in clear plastic, but side windows have not been included, because past experience has shown that Testors Window Maker does a good job on small scale windows such as those on this model. A file containing decals for both the HH-3E, flown by the USAF, and the HH-3F flown by the USCG, is provided for those who want to print their own decals.
