About this model
This scale model of a Bell 206B Jet Ranger is highly detailed and the doors open. This, however, comes at the price of not being very robust. Several parts come off easily - especially when opening the doors or turning the rotors.
In order to build the numbers spelling "5590" on the sides as shown in the video, one has to use stickers for the horizontal lines in the middle of the letters. This is I have choosen not to include the letters in the building instructions.
The helicopter fits on top of the helicopter trailer, and should be secured using chains for the landing gear and strings for the main rotor blades.
