Model Helicopter – This HH-65 Dolphin Model Helicopter is a scale model of the original USCG HH-65 Dolphin helicopter. The HH-65 Dolphin Model Helicopter is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The Dolphin model helicopter arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The HH-65 Dolphin is a twin engine MEDEVAC, search and rescue helicopter operated by the United States Coast Guard. The HH-65 is also used for homeland security patrols, ice braking, and pollution control. The Dolphin is mainly known for its autopilot capabilities. It can complete an unaided approach and bring the aircraft into a stable 50 foot hover or automatically fly a search pattern which allows the crew to engage in other tasks.
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.
