    Boy Hasegawa makes one helluva quality model. I built a Sea King by them, and gave it to an engineer friend of mine there, it sat on his desk for the last 6 years I worked there. The detailing was incredible. I built it with the blades folded back, and greebled in all the hoses and wiring in the rotor head. This will be fun to watch. :)
