In my search for detail for my CH53E 1/18th scale build I have trawled the net for detail, images and descriptions, garnering snippets here and there. As chance would have it I was looking for something else when I saw a link to this site -

Sikorsky CH-53E Sea Stallion, Vertical Challenge 2010 Air Show, by Vladimir Yakubov .

This is a scale builders' dream!

Almost every rivet, decal, scuffed paint mark is shown in incredible detail in the 324 images contained in it. So detailed that it has prompted me to strip back some of what I thought was accurate in order to redo the parts. For me, the best find was the tail skid mechanism as I want this on my build to operate with the landing gear and now have enough details to go ahead with a revision to the mechanical operation of it.

Going further back into his website gives you access to additional helicopter walk arounds but none as detailed as the CH53E.

My thanks go to Vladimir for his painstakingly detailed contribution.
