This model is the Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane. This is an American twin-engine heavy-lift helicopter. Transport helicopters are used to lift heavy loads when other methods are not feasible. For example, getting to the tops of buildings or mountains & hills. This helicopter is powered by two 4,050 shaft horsepower engines. Although this was originally a Sikorsky Aircraft product, Erickson Air-Crane purchased the type certificate & manufacturing rights. Since then, Erickson Air-Crane has become the worlds largest operator of S-64 Aircrane & has made over 1,350 changes to the airframe, instrumentation, & payload capabilities of the helicopter. The Erickson Air-Crane fleet is leased worldwide to organizations, companies, & Federal Government agencies for either short-term or long-term use in fire suppression, civil protection, heavy lift construction, & timber harvesting. This transport helicopter model is almost 40 inches long & 15 inches wide, making this a 1:21 scale. The only assembly needed for this helicopter is putting the three pieces of the propeller together. There are three pieces to the entire propeller & they are stacked on each other & held in with screws & hex nuts. Once the propeller is assembled, slide the entire piece over the top & finally hold it all together with the top piece. Once that is together, the helicopter can be held up as long as the nuts are secured & ready to be suspended. Attach the included cargo & suspend this craft by its built-in chain. Under the cargo, there is an LED light bar to give an even greater aesthetic appeal. The paint job & color scheme on the helicopter gives a strong feel of authenticity. Hang up this model, plug in the cargo, & enjoy.
