History and use
In 1952, US Navy wished a helicopter for anti-submarine fight more modern than S-55 (H-19). The
Sikorsky firm then conceived the S-58 (H-34), which accomplished its first flight on 8 Mars 1954.
This machine took again the formula which had made the success of its elder with many improvements
on the fuselage shape and on the transmissions.
The first standard aircraft was ready in September of the same year and entered in service immediatly
for US Navy in HSS-1 version. US Army and US Navy crpos respectively ordered it in 1955 and
1957.
In France, to face the needs for Algeria war, Sud Aviation assembled 135 H-34 and built 166 other under
licence.
Conceived like submarine killer, H-34 was mainly used as a military transport helicopter. It was largely
employed by the Americans in
Vit-nam, under the name "Choctaw", for troops transport.
It was also used by France in Algeria war initially like troops transport. It constituted a privileged target at this
time. However, the tenacity of
Colonel Brunet made of it a ground and attack support helicopter, called "Pirate", equipped with a heavy
armament. So it became less
vulnerable and much more dreaded.
S-58 was used a little in civil version.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTION

The proposed Sikorsky CH-34C 1/32 scale model despite relatively easy to be build, is with high level of
similarity to the prototype. Thus, a special attention and precision in the assembly procedure is required.
Study carefully the illustrative drawings, cutouts and present instruction before starting the work on the
model. See also the pictures on the back cover that illustrate the assembly process. Try to imagine the
separate assembly phases and the purpose of each detail.
After the acquaintance with the model, you may start the assemblage. Follow the sequence given in the
instruction. Cut the necessary details shortly before using them in order to avoid possible mistakes. Score
all fold lines before cutting the details. The places of scoring are marked with small thin lines on the
continuation of fold lines outside the parts. The scissors markings show where to make cuts on some
details.
Do not be in a hurry with gluing - carefully check and shape the details until obtain the exact and correct
fit. Before starting the work get hold of the necessary tools: scissors, sharp modeling knife, blunt knife for
scoring the fold lines, prickle, ruler, nippers and grinding paper. Additional materials necessary for the
assemblage are: few sheets of cardboard with thickness approximately 0.5 mm, a piece of wire with
diameter 0.5 - 0.8 mm, transparent foil for the canopy. Supply with proper glue. BISON Clear Adhesive,
UHU or similar are recommended as the most appropriate ones. Water based glue is not recommended.
Preparation for assembling includes gluing the pages that contain the formers and strengthening elements
on 0.5 mm cardboard.
Start from the fuselage frame as it is shown on view A of the instruction drawings. Follow the number
sequence of parts during frame assemblage to avoid puzzle-like situations. When the fuselage frame is
ready you must choose the interior variant. It can be with 11 seats for troop transportation or with 8 litters
and one seat for medevac variant. You can omit the interior parts at all for cargo variant.
After adding the cockpit interior parts pilots seats, controls, instrument panels and interior parts fire
extinguisher 26 on part 2, seats and/or litters to the fuselage frame you must cover it with the fuselage
skin 28.
Carefully prepare the part 28 before gluing it. Cut the windows and door areas, and optionally the holes of
the fuel tank orifices 28d. Glue the transparent windows 28t and orifices 28d on the inner side of 28. Then
carefully form the fuselage skin and after several dry tests glue it to the fuselage frame. Do not be in a
hurry. The gluing of the skin is the most critical operation in the entire assembly process and the overall
view of the competed model depends of it successful completion.
Continue with the engine cowling parts 29, 30 and 31. Pay special attention to forming and gluing 31.
Then assembly and glue to 28 the fuselage section 32 and main rotor gear cowling 33.
Now assembly the cockpit glazing 34, 36 and glue it to the cockpit. You can fix the door 63 in open or
close position.
Then prepare the rear fuselage segment 37 and add it to the fuselage. Add also the tail parts 38 and
horizontal stabilizer 42. Be careful in gluing the stabilizer to tail do not avoid twisting of it. Keep
strictly the lines of symmetry.
Prepare and fix the landing gear to the fuselage. Glue the wheels from concentric card circles 45, 48, then
round them by using sand paper and paint the tires in black.
Prepare the tail rotor subassembly as it is shown on view F of the instruction drawings. The rotor must be
capable to rotate free. Then glue the subassembly to the tail.
Add all small details rescue hoist, exhaust pipes, antennas, pilots glass cleaners and mirrors.
Assembly the main rotor as it is shown on view I. It must be capable to rotate free in its bearing, then
insert the main rotor subassembly in its place on the main gear cowling 33.
Now your model is ready. Enjoy.
