    I have a vac-u-formed 1/72 scale model of it from the '80s. 90% completed, only 90% more to go to finish it. Those who build vac-u-formed models will understand.

    By the way, the rotors and transmission are the basis of the highly successful H-53 series.

    The Mohave validates one of the definitions of an early helicopter: 100,000 loose parts, flying in close formation. With twin row, PW R-2800 radials in each pod, plus the associated gear boxes, torque converters and drive shafts --it was a truly mechnanical monster. The first of the heavy lift helicopters, it could carry a jeep, 75 mm howitzer and crew.

    Yeah, the eyes would be great! If anybody couldn't tell, I'm kind of into crazy helecopters. I would love to have this one with an interior too.
