1:72 Scale Diecast metal and plastic parts – Sikorsky HH-3E Jolly Green Giant - USAF - - Length: 9.5" (fuselage) Rotor span: 11”
This model has a fuselage that measures 9.5 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.
The landing gear is fixed in the extended position.
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.
