Revell 1\32 SA 330 Puma "Bundespolizei"

Recommended Posts

Finally I can call this one done it's one of the first large scale choppers I did and I was hoping to get an original matchbox one but I have had to settle for a Revell rebox and it's showing its age.
But here's the result.spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.png

Strangely I've seen the real thing. 

SA330J PUMA D-HAXT GARDA SIOCHANA

When it was in service with the border guards. It was leased by the Irish Police for the Pope's visit in 1979. You can see it's in earlier configuration. With a huge Garda marking. Bit of a coincidence. 

 

Nice job on the model. I had the Matchbox kit but it's long gone now.

Nice Puma. I can see a few differences to the original RAF version.

I still have the remains of one I built back when I worked on them. I still have the box too, up on the wall in the mancave.

Hello PAirfix,

Indeed, very old model. Seen this for the first time in 1986 in a hobby shop.

You turned it into a very interesting subject. The German Border Control.

Regards, Orion.
