Never started a WIP thread on this as I didn't think it would be a very interesting build, but here it is, all finished; made a few mistakes on it but, hopefully, they aren't things anyone would notice (the black & yellow stripes on the ramp are backwards, one of the troop seat supports got eaten by the "carpet monster", forgot to attach a cooling scoop to the top of the "dog house", somehow managed to get a bead of superglue to run down the right side of the fuselage by the man door, etc.).

Until the introduction of the next-gen CH-53K King Stallion (IOC in 2019), this is the largest, most powerful helicopter in the Western world (second only to Russia's behemoth Mil Mi-26), with three gas turbine engines producing 4,750 shp each, for a combined total of 14,250 shp.

Enjoy.
