Gunther Winkle dissects the singular Sikorsky HR2S-1/CH-37C Deuce & H-37A/CH-37B Mojave Heavy-Lift Helicopter in the lavishly illustrated 107th installment of Ginter Books' "Naval Fighters" series.
And what a cool – and colorful – compendium it is.
Coverage is "pure Ginter". And that means hundreds of color and B&W photos, color artwork, tech-manual excerpts, drawings, and exterior and interior minutiae – outside and in.
How about that funky shot of H&MS-16 "Junkman 5" with bloodshot "eyes" at Da Nang East, South Vietnam?
Historical notes, USMC and US Army service summaries, and explanatory captions supplement all those pretty pictures. And an understandably brief three pages of Mojave model kit coverage conclude contents.
Use the book's color profiles to plan and paint Special Hobby's 1:72-scale CH-37 releases. And all use details to address kit concerns!
Consider Ginter's effort a one-volume reference library on Mojaves.
With thanks to Ginter Books!
