CH-53E Super Stallion is a reference book for scale plastic modelers that will provide reference photos of CH-53Es. Not only will there be detailed closeup pictures, but others showing the paint schemes and the wear and tear of everyday use, along with brief descriptions of the various configurations. The book is 100 pages and has over 500 color images.
Mason Doupnik is a long-established authority on the CH-53 family. A masterful modeler and artist, he has tackled Academy's 1/48 beastly CH-53E numerous times, with additional attention being paid to "accurizing" the kit: riveting the entire airframe to replicate missing details, customizing markings, wiring the massive rotor head, etc. In the course of his research, he has accumulated hundreds (if not thousands) of photographs of the venerable "Shitter" and has put them to good use in CAVU Publications' first offering, "CH-53E Super Stallion". This 100-page book is a jaw-dropping collection of Mason's efforts over the years at compiling THE most comprehensive reference book of any aircraft, bar none. Even if you've never tackled the huge Academy kit, the book remains a primer on modern USN/USMC tactical paint schemes (TPS) and how they "weather" in fleet service. In addition to Mason's photographs, there are many photos of the -53E throughout its service life, which provide some background into the type's service history and the many markings and camouflage schemes it's worn over the years. But the good stuff lies in the detail photos; literally no panel is left unturned. The photos of the airframe are extensive, and rival many I've seen in official technical publications of the aircraft.
