Bell Boeing MV-22B (V-22) HMX-1 Osprey - "Marine One" 1/150 Scale Diecast Metal Model by Daron
1:150 Scale Diecast Metal – Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey - MV-22B Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1)– Length: 4.75" Wingspan: 6” (from rotor tip to rotor tip)
This MV-22 model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.
The box is labeled as Adult Collectible Model and Recommends 14 and older.
Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. From the photos one can see and appreciate the transparent cockpit windshield. The propellers are free to rotate and very smooth. If one blows onto the them they would start spinning. The engines are able to rotate into different positions. There are very few gaps and/or joints in this model.
Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).
The maker of the model, Model Power, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring.
