Description

The Italeri Westland Wessex HU.5 Falklands Model Kit in 1/48 scale from the plastic aircraft model kit range accurately recreates the real life British helicopter that was used during the Falklands War.

This Italeri aircraft model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Italeri plastic models range.

For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.

We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.

The Wessex, easily recognizable by its distinctive line characterized the cockpit placed high, was produced by the British Westland under license. It was based on the American helicopter Sikorsky S-58 "Choctaw" project with the adoption of a British turbine-powered 1,200 HP Rolls-Royce engine. The Wessex has proved an extraordinary longevity. It was, for nearly three decades, employed by the British Royal Navy to carry out, in its different versions, many operational tasks. The Wessex UH.5, one of the latest version of Westland helicopter, was used during the period of Falklands War in the South Atlantic on 1982, and it was specialized to satisfy the tactical transportation needs of artillery, ammunitions and missile systems. Thanks to its reliability, Wessex UH.5 has also been used for more tough duties; the transportation of Royal Marines Commandos during assault and infiltration operations.
