The first helicopter to feature a fenestron ("fan-in-fin") tail, the Westland Gazelle is a five-seat aircraft first introduced in 1973. 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 limited edition, 1/72 scale, die cast model — a replica of a Mk. 4 used by the British Army during the Gulf War's 1991 mission known as "Operation Granby" — features a glazed nose revealing a well-equipped cockpit, rotating propellers, a detailed fenestron, and an authentic camouflage paint scheme and British markings. Measures approximately 6½" long with a 5¾" rotor-span.
