1/78 00013 Revell Fairey Rotodyne Cutaway Model with Full Interior
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
2009 issue from the original molds as the classic 1961 kit. Unique and highly detailed model in near 1/72 scale of this vertical take-off and landing transport airplane. The first prototype flew in November 1957 and appeared at the Farnborough Air Show three years later. The Rotodyne could carry 60 civil passengers or 70 fully equipped troops as well as cargo. Cruising speed was 175 kts and maximum range was 610 nm. Kit features cut away design - a large fuselage panel can be removed to show off the complete interior with passenger seats, passengers, pilots, stewardess, baggage compartment (complete down to the suitcases), bathroom with toilet & sink and cargo compartment including boxes, tire, carpet and barrel. Another panel comes off at the support for the rotor to reveal internal aircraft structure and the rotor power transmission. Also includes complete cockpit, working boarding door and stairs, working rear clam-shell cargo doors, operating rudder and elevators and rotating wheels, props and main rotor. The model has not been started. NOTE: missing one #39 hinge (for rear door) and one main wheel. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. One prop blade is cleanly broke off at the hub; the blade is present and this is a simple repair since the spinner covers the hub on this model.
