Hughes 500D Tow Helicopter
This is a 1/48 Plastic Hughes 500D TOW Helicopter from Academy Plastics. It's for ages 10 and up.
One of the most nimble helicopters in service today is the Hughes Model 500. This machine is a development of the U.S. Army's OH-6A Cayuse which proved so valuable as an observation and attack helicopter in the vietnam war. The Model 500 is modified with a "T" type tail and a five-blade rotor for more quiet operation. The spritely defender can carry nearly all military equipment designed for helicopters.
