Do you have a set of specs for the R6 as I have to move one and I need to know if it will fit on my trailer, thanks

I head up the restoration team at the American Helicopter Museum in West Chester, Pa. We are currently restoring an R-6.....1 of 4 in the U.S. that we are aware of....1- Fort Rucker, Alabama, 2-Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio, 3-New England Air Museum and ours.
I just printed a set of the Comet Model Plans so we can add that to the mix.

I have aquired a copy of the old Comet drawing, through the kindness of Bill Parker of Texas USA. I am three parts through the build, will send photo. to any one interested when finished, thought it was good challenge for me to have ago at.

I too have aquired the plans from the old "COMET" kit. I am in the process of building the model of the Sikorsk R-6.
As Jon Winder asked, does anyone have any good photos of this aircraft.

While I'm at, does anyone have any othe plans or kits of balsa wood models of other helicopters ?

This helicopter would have beat the Bell 47 to Korea but after the war they were stored in the open,The magnesium rotted and the helicopters were junk .When war broke out it was a big break for Bell.


Jon Winder, e-mail, 28.02.2010 20:49

I am going to build a model of this helicopter. I have the plans from an old "COMET" model kit but I wanted to find some pictures.

What was the R6's manufacturer's designation? The R4 article lists it as the VS316A but this article doesn't tell us what Sikorsky called the design.


Erik H., e-mail, 14.06.2007 19:11

219 R-6A's were built by Nash-Kelvinator in 1944-45 under license from Sikorsky


Ed B., e-mail, 23.04.2007 11:20

I lived near Nash-Kelvinator during the production years of the helicopter. (Canadian Air Attache rented space in my home.) Was wondering if any of the R-4s were built by
Nash-K?
