The Airfix 1/72 Fairey Rotodyne from the plastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life British prototype passenger and heavy military transport autogyro helicopter developed in the 1950s. This model requires paint and glue to complete.

Undoubtedly one of the most spectacular products of the post-war British aviation industry, the distinctive Fairey Rotodyne was a revolutionary large compound gyroplane which held great promise for both worldwide inter-city medium air transportation, in addition to possessing numerous military applications during the late 1950s.

The impressive looking Rotodyne featured jet powered main rotor tips which operated during vertical take-off and landing, hovering and transitioning to forward flight, before a pair of Napier Eland turboprops were engaged for forward flight.

Despite successfully completing over 350 test flights, just a single prototype aircraft would be built, before the withdrawal of government funding tragically consigned the Fairey Rotodyne to the aviation history books.
