The VH-3D is a member of the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King family, which are twin-engine anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters. It was a landmark design, being the first ASW helicopter to take advantage of turboshaft engines, as well as being the first amphibious helicopter in the world. This specific variant is used for VIP transport for the U.S. Marine Corps, and entered service in 1976.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
