1/72 AA2043 Anigrand Bell XHSL-1 Helicopter
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: Mint
Bell's first and only tandem rotor design was the first ASW helicopter. The prototype flew in 1953 and it flew well. The Navy and British Fleet Air Arm ordered several craft. However, the first carrier trials showed the noise levels to be very high that limited sonar performance. Production was cut and the Navy went to the HSS-1. XHSL-1s performed minesweeping, training and other duties till retirement at the end of the 1960s. Very highly detailed resin kit. Still internally sealed. Complete with decals and instructions.
