Piasecki HUP Retriever from Amercom

Here is a Piasecki HUP Retriever from Amercom. Diecast, and 1/72 scale, it is a nice model of a Cold War helicopter. Piasecki renamed itself to Vertol, and later merged with Boeing. This is the Naval version, originally known as the HUP-2 Retriever. The Army had its own version, the H-25 Mule. The military services standardized their nomenclature sometime in the early 1960s, and this helicopter became known as the UH-25B. The models sell for 12-18 dollars, so the detail and quality is good for the price.
