1:72 Scale – Bell OH-13H (H-13, OH-13) Sioux -  Lenght: 7" (from tip tail to tip of rotor at the front)  Rotor span: 6”

 

This Sioux model is a twin seat model and does not include a pilot/crew figures. A stand where the model can be attached for display is included. The display stand has the model's info such as country, flag and scale.

 

The blades for the main rotor need to be attached. Although they are supposed to be snap/friction fit, it seems that it will be better is a tiny (very tiny) drop of super glue is applied just to keep things secure. The assembly for the rotor and the blades are very fragile, so one needs to be very careful when attaching the blades since it is very easy to bend or break things out of shape.

 

These helicopter models are really not toys, they are not made to be played with. They will not last long if played with. Moreover, these models are made to look realistic and faithful to the real thing, so little parts like landing gears, skies, weapons, pods and antennas are made from small parts and are very fragile.

 

These models come in what could be described as a disposable blister pack (sandwiched between two transparent plastic shells and then glued/attached to a piece of cardboard with the branding info. There is really nothing spectacular about the packaging, but at the end, the packaging is supposed to be disposable and with the sole function protecting the model, which it does very well.
