One thing about the decals. On the commercial S-51 at the time the Wing on the 'Winged S' at that time period always pointed forward on both sides per I. I. Sikorsky's direction. "Wings don't fly backwards" was the Quote. the 'S' remained as it should.

this problem can be corrected wit a sharp blade.

Thank God the model is 1/48

Merry Christmas
