Model building by Revell - model helicopter in detailed execution
Model building is not only great fun for children, but also a timeless, popular hobby for adults. In the category model helicopters you will find many models as detailed replicas from the military and civilian sector for building yourself. With the variety of lifelike kits, the choice is not always easy. Fourteen military helicopter models from all over the world and five civilian helicopters - from police to ADAC - are listed with an exact description, the data and the history of the respective helicopter and promise a variety of information around the models as well as high tinkering fun.
Detailed replicas and perfect colour design
The AH-64D Longbow Apache in scale 1:144 is the world's most powerful and versatile combat lift screwdriver. It was successfully used by the US armed forces in the Gulf Wars. The new kit form, the cockpit with control stick, instrument panel and seats, the detailed surfaces, the movable main rotor and much more are reproduced in detail. Another highlight of the helicopter category is the Bell® V-22 Osprey, a vertical take-off aircraft of the US Marines, which has a tilting rotor system. The Mil Mi-28 Havoc (Havoc=destruction) is the kit of a night-suited, two-seater and heavily armoured Russian combat helicopter. The movable main and tail rotor, the authentic decal and many other details like engine nacelles or the gun make this model particularly exciting. The BK-117 ADAC must not be missing in the list of civilian helicopters. The two-turbine helicopter was used by the ADAC as a rescue helicopter because of its high cabin, extraordinary flight performance and reliability. The BK-117 comes on a scale of 1:72 and is suitable for children aged 10 and over. Rega is the largest air rescue organization in Switzerland. Until 2010, Rega flew its missions with the twin-engine Agusta A-109 K2. These helicopters were precisely tailored to the needs of the air rescue service thanks to their optimum flight performance in the mountains and compact ambulance equipment. In scale 1:72 this model helicopter inspires with all details of the original.
Model making by Revell - a must for all helicopter fans
Fans of military helicopters get their money's worth with Revell kits just as much as lovers of the civilian class. Moving rotor blades, cockpits with instrument boards, sensors and antennas, moving side panels and authentic decals are just some of the lovingly designed details that will make the heart of every hobbyist and collector beat faster. Detailed building instructions can be downloaded as a PDF from the model shop or are included with the kit with a list of the necessary colours. Each component is numbered, and along with the detailed instructions, assembling the selected Revell model helicopter is quick and easy.
Before you buy a kit, the difficulty levels will help you find the right model. While difficulty level 2 models are also suitable for beginners, level 5 poses challenges even for craft professionals. The additional recommendation of the minimum age offers further orientation when buying. Once the right model has been selected, it promises a long time of fun. The joy about the finished model is then equally great for adult and young model building fans.
