USMC helos 1985
OK, the post says helos, but first, some extra fixed wing assets. A pair of A-4 Skyhawks (Scotia CAUM09), painted in a scheme I found on google for the late 70's.
A trio of F-16 Falcons (Heroics and Ros USMA 412).
Then the helicopters. First up, H&R USMA 405 Huey Cobra AH-1s, representing Sea Cobra attack helicopters in USMC service. The model at the front has I-94 transfers, but the small decal size coupled with my sausage fingers meant that I finished up painting on the "marines" insignia by hand.
The UH-1 Slik light transport helicopters by H&R (USMA407).
CH53 Sea Stallion heavy transport helicopters (H&R USMA506) ready for some heavy lifting.
CH-46 Sea Knights or Phrogs (H&R USMA414), general purpose helicopter transport.
Now it's on to a read through of Pike and Shotte ahead of my introductory game next month. In the meanwhile, I'll get on with cleaning up the Czech "bring n buy" goodies and see what sort of TO&E I can put together.
Thanks for looking!
