Caracal Models CD 48148: CH-47 Chinook

Units: See review




Scott Van Aken

When the Army bought the Vertol CH-47 back in the early 1960s, little did they realize that the type would still be in service 50 years later. Yet it is and since there is little around to replace it, it is still being built, serving with both active and national guard units. The current versions are the CH-47D and CH-47F, models which are covered in this sheet.

Not surprisingly, most of the seventeen markings options are for US Army planes and those are all painted in a desert tan camouflage as is the lone Australian option. The others, with the RAF and Canadian Air Force are in olive drab with two of the Canadian options also having a green added. You can get a look at all the options by visiting their web site.

So here is what you get in the sheet.
