Ah, one of the grandfathers of my modellcollection...! Although the box says the kit is 1:48, I would say 1:40 is closer to the truth. It is considerably larger than the 1:48 Fujimi Alouette III- kit. The Heller- kit is very undetailed. The cockpit area has a horizontal seam instead of the more common vertical seam. Although the overall dimensions look ok (imho the shape of the cockpit is better than that of the Fujimi Alouette), the general appearance is sketch- like and toyish. The rubber tyres (!) add to this impression...

Really an ol kit! It comes from the 80´s, doesnt it?

A lot of Heller Helicopters are in fact 1/50 scale! but I think a lot of the boxes say 1/48!

It wouldn't surprise me if the kit was even older, Holger. I remember buying it, must have been in the early 80's, and already thinking then the box and the box-art style looked really old!!

Glenn, that's right, the scales with Heller have been a bit of a mess all along. The Alouette III somehow is the worst of their catalogue in those days: it is not just slightly out of scale but really way off! I guess Heller had plans to aim for the younger modeller with this kit. Very rude and basic, completely different from f.i. their Lama, Gazelle and Puma.
