Product Description

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.

Product Features
  • Plastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in tan and grey..
  • The surface of the helicopter is decorated with fully engraved pane lines and rivet detail..
  • Highly detailed cockpit interior includes gauges and controls..
  • Two life-like pilot figurines are included..
  • Rotor assembly delivers heartily in the realism department..

  • A unique mast-mounted sight sits atop the helicopter..
  • A very faithfully modeled TOW missle pod attaches to each side o the small craft..

Hughes 500D Helicopter
By enough35046 February 17, 2015
An awesome helicopter to add to your collection. Perfect scale size and a really great price on it by Hobbylinc.Probably recommended for a slightly more skilled model builder. This is due to the small parts - but still a great kit and I highly recommend it.

Nice little kit
By crc1701 September 20, 2015
Very nice little kit. Good level of detail and fit.Had a little trouble with the clear parst not wanting to fit right. Not for beginners due to the small parts.
