About the CH-46 Sea Knight Marines Model
Similar in design to the CH-47 Chinook series of transport helicopters, the CH-46 Sea Knight keeps its engine components mounted on top to provide unobstructed access to the aircraft. While the CH-47 Chinook serves the US Army, the CH-46 Sea Knight is the main transport helicopter of the US Marine Corps. Both aircraft use the patented tandem three-blade rotor design, but the latter is powered by two Lycoming turboshaft engines. This gives it the power to carry external sling loads whenever necessary. In a Marine Medium Helicopter (HMM) squadron, the CH-46 Sea Knight is primarily responsible for transporting combat troops and their supplies during operations. Movement of supplies and equipment is a secondary function. The CH-46 Sea Knight is also utilized for evacuation operations, search and rescue, as well as rearming and refueling.
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!
