Model Helicopter This CH-47 Chinook Model Helicopter is a scale model of the original CH-47D Chinook helicopter. The Chinook Model Helicopter is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The CH-47 Chinook model helicopter arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is a versatile, twin engine, heavylift helicopter. Its top speed is 196 mph which was faster than many attack helicopters of the 1960s and even many today. The Chinook helicopters wide loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage and 3-external cargo hooks make it ideal for troop movement, artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. Chinooks have been sold to 16 nations but the largest users are the U.S. Army and the Royal Air Force.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood aircraft sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
