The EC-135 light twin engined helicopter is a joint French/German development, which originated as a further development of the BO-105 helicopter.

In late 1992, the design was revised with the introduction of the Fenestron tail rotor system, reflecting the creation of Eurocopter that year through the merger of Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB) and Aérospatiale. The combination of lower accident potential from the enclosed rotor, and interior space, have made the EC135 popular with Police and aeromedical helicopter operators. The EC135 is the best selling light twin of the past 10 years.

The Royal Dutch Touring Club (Dutch, Algemene Nederlandse Wielrijdersbond or ANWB) is a travelers' association in the Netherlands, supporting all modes of travel. It's responsible for traffic signs and signage on roads and trails. It also offers test reports, travel services and roadside assistance. The Helicopters are operated by MAA a Dutch helicopter company that provides medical support services.

The kit
The kit has been around from Revell since 2001 and has been released periodically since then. We last reviewed the kit here back in 2011. The mouldings are still as good, but now in white plastic not silver. With this release are decals for PH-ELP operated for ANWB.

Conclusion

Even though this kit has been around for a while now it is a good kit of the EC135 and will make upto a good model. It is great Revell keep releasing these kits with different civilian decal schemes. Recommended

Revell model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers.
