Flettner Fl 282 V14

This is an older build from 2011. It shows the first serial produced helicopter, a Flettner Fl 282. V14 means that its the 14th produced prototype. It was used for calibration flights and completed 116 starts along with 28 operating hours. It had intermeshing, counter rotating rotors, so no tail rotor was needed to equal engine torque.

The kit showed great moulding quality with very fine and detailed parts. Its the only quarterscale kit of that company that quit business in 2002. I added PE seatbelts, some brass rods to stiffen the under-carriage and self made decals. Cut out the rudder, too. Paintwork is Vallejo - RLM 65 / 71.
