S-64 Skycrane Erickson Wood Desktop Model Helicopter Hand-carved and Hand-Painted Mahogany Model In Stock and Ready to Ship! Don't wait 3-4 weeks for inferior models! We stock and ship all our models from our Arizona Warehouse, not from Asia! Most orders ship the same day! Initial work on the Sikorsky heavy-lift 'sky-crane' helicopter began in 1958. The first flight of the turboshaft-powered S-64 "Skycrane" was May 9, 1962, with the U.S. Army eventually purchasing 105. Used in Vietnam for transport and downed-aircraft retrieval, it was highly successful, but the 'adaptable' nature of the module system was in fact a limitation: it could be a transport or a skycrane, but not both at the same time.
"I wanted to personally thank each of you for your efforts. The models arrived yesterday and are wonderful. Thanks again for all you did in the process. It is a pleasure to deal with a company that goes out of its way in exceptional customer service" Tom M., North Little Rock, AK TMC Pacific Modelworks has been producing the world's finest collection of hand-made model aircraft, ships, plaques and artifacts for over 20 years.

Our master craftsmen, working from three-dimensional drawings, chip away the excess wood from the kiln-dried block until an airplane amazingly appears. They work their tools with remarkable precision and unusual attention to detail. Several stages of fine sanding, between primer coats, produce a silky smooth finish ready for final painting. Talented artists using ultra-fine brushes, paint the nose art, stripes and markings. We select the aircraft and paint schemes for their historical significance and authenticity. A final coat of clear lacquer provides lasting protection to the exquisite finish.Unmatched Satisfaction Guarantee and Warranty We believe in 100% customer satisfaction.
