Immediately the movie "The Bridges at Toko-Ri come to my mind!

Is this the same kit that you posted as news on 3 Jun? Micro-Mir: Sikorsky S-5

It's an update Gino with additional early sprue shots from Micro-Mir.

No problem, just wanted to be sure they were not two different kits. If so, I didn't see what the differences were and was wondering, esp. since one is listed as an A-5 and the other an S-5.

Apologies Gino it should be a S-5, not a A-5. I have added an additional image showing the clear parts. tim

No issues. Title fixed.

Very interesting, seems MicroMir has improved a lot over the (much) earlier 1/350 u-boot I have.

The S-5 was I believe the very first real helicopter in the Netherlands, when the dikes broke and the province Zeeland flooded one S-5 "Jezebel" saved over a hundred lives: LINK

Thanks for the updated article - it cleared up a question I had... I have a Fonderie 1/48th Sikorsky R5/HO3S-1 in my stash but this looks much, much better. The Fonderie kit was really sweet but the big problem was that despite having transparent fuselage halves, they are frosted. (Even the skin areas need sanding and polishing. I never started it.)
