S-61 Wooden Model
Military Mahogany is proud to offer this S-61 wooden model helicopter to our series of beautiful hand crafted models. The Sea King has been built under license in Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom.
It was designed for shipboard operations, as the five main rotor blades as well as tail section with its five blades can be folded for easy stowage. Because of its amphibious hull, the S-61 has the ability to land on water. However, this is a risky maneuver and used only in emergencies, as the hull can only remain watertight for a limited period of time. The sponsons were fitted with deployable airbags to enhance flotation.
