A five-seat aircraft first seen in 1973, the Westland Gazelle was the first helicopter to feature a fenestron ("fan-in-fin") tail. Its primary function is scouting, though it does perform transport and light attack duties as well. The Gazelle has seen combat action around the world including in Syria, Rwanda, and for both sides during the Gulf War. It remains in service today.
This 1/72 scale, die cast model — a replica of the ZB647, a Gazelle flying with the Royal Navy "Sharks" — features that aircraft's signature red accents and tail artwork, textured exterior surfaces, a glazed nose revealing a well-equipped cockpit, rotating propellers, a detailed fenestron, and authentic markings. Measures approximately 6½" long with a 5¾" rotor-span.
