The description below is taken from the Airfix catalogue this kit was first seen in. There may also be extra information underneath the main description.

Airfix Catalogue description:

The Sikorsky Sea King helicopter currently in service with the U.S. Navy and now selected for production in Britain. Sonar equipment, torpedoes and depth charges are all included in this highly detailed kit.

- From 7th Edition (1969)

Additional notes

Originally released as part of the aircraft range with decal markings for number "63" (large numbers on side of fuselage). It was re-released the following year as part of the new Space range with markings "66" and described in the catalogues as the famous 66 (1969 cataloque description above) that picked up the Apollo astronauts.

The Original "63" in Type 3 box is therefore rare.

The 1971 issue of the "66" (the Apollo 11 recovery aircraft from USS Hornet) also included a winch cage and astronaut figure.
