The VH-3D is a member of the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King family, which are twin engined anti submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters.
It was a landmark design, being the first ASW helicopter to take advantage of turboshaft engines, as well as being the first amphibious helicopter in the world. This specific variant is used for VIP transport for the U.S. Marine Corps, and entered service in 1976.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
