Having provided a new-tool 1/72 Kaman Seasprite UH-2A/B in 2020, the Ukrainian manufacturer has now kitted the twin-engined UH-2C and -2D airframes. Here, CHRIS CLIFFORD reviews the -2C.


Helicopter enthusiasts have had to wait many years for a newly tooled Seasprite in 1/72 scale. The only options were the those from Fujimi and Airfix, products from the 1970s and 80s respectively. So, most modellers who favour building rotorcraft rejoiced at the appearance of Clear Prop’s new 1/72 kits. As you’d expect from this manufacturer, it has raised the bar to new heights for models of this characterful ‘chopper’. To please die-hard fans of the type, it has also released boxings of the twin-engined UH-2C and -2D, so you chart most of the career of the Seasprite in 1/72 scale.
