Ambitious as a real aircraft and equally ambitious as a model, Airfix provide 115 parts to construct a perfect miniture reproduction of this much publicised record-breaking passenger/freight craft. The retractable undercarriage, fully operating tail doors and detailed interior are just three of the special features which Airfix include in this kit. The rotor has a span of 15 inches and the exeact 1/72nd scale of this model makes it ideally suitable for use on a heliport in conjunction with a "00" gauge model railway. - Taken from the 1st edition catalogue (1962)
