Jim gives us an unboxing of this new kit from Trumpeter. A 1/35 scale Eurocopter of French design and markings now made by Airbus Helicopters.

This looks like a really nice helicopter. Any idea what would have to be done on it to make it a USCG MH-65C/D?

I read somewhere that they are already going to do the Dolphin and also a Cougar too. Woohoo!

I've just taken receipt of this kit from Jim and will be doing a Review Video on it. On first inspection it does have a couple of niggles ! The paint guide has the wrong Tamiya paints listed and the Box Art shows the Maritime Variant with a Winching System, Rescue Equipment and a Night Sun Spotlight, none of which are provided in the kit.
Also the Kit contains 12 Seats, which basically makes it a Civilian Helo and not the Maritime Variant shown on the Box.
Look out for me Video Review, coming soon.
Andy.

That's a shame about the boxed version. I was looking forward to the maritime variant...
