Vintage (1:24) Bell model 47
November 28, 2015 in Aviation
Many years ago I commissioned a gentleman in California to custom fabricate this 1:24 scale Bell model 47 helicopter. The craftsmanship and detail are so beautiful that I wanted to share to this website. Due to the fact that it was produced so long ago I can no remember his name nor company.
Livery, “N” number and other details were to my specifications and design. Over the years I added small details such as the fuel lines, antennas, navigation lights/landing light and slider window (pilot side). The model’s fuselage (open truss) is made of brass with the other components comprising of plastic and resin. The overall length is eighteen inches long, six inches high with three inches wide.
