1:144 Scale Diecast Metal – Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey – Length: 5" Wingspan (from engine to engine): 4.5”
This collection of models is made by Air Force 1 under the brand name of Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
This Osprey model has its landing gear extended permanently. The wheels on the landing gear do not turn. The model 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.
An all metal display stand is included. This display needs some minor assembly. The type of airplane and scale of the model are printed on the display stand.
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 engines can pivot/rotate to show the different flight modes.
The maker of the model, Air Force 1, 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. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of aturboprop aircraft.
