1:72 Scale Diecast metal and plastic parts – Bell UH-1N (UH-1) Twin Huey - USAF - Length: 7" (fuselage) Rotor span: 8”
This model has a fuselage that measures 7 inches long and has a main rotor that measures 11 inches in diameter. A display stand is included.
The model is already assembled and painted, however, the blades, and rotors need to be assembled. No glue is needed.
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.
The Bell UH-1N Twin Huey is a twin-engine medium military helicopter. A member of the extensive Huey family, it first flew in 1969. The CUH-1N Twin Huey (later CH-135 Twin Huey) was the original version, first ordered by the Canadian Forces.
