This Osage Model Helicopter is a scale model of the original Hughes TH-55 Osage model helicopter. Our TH-55 Osage Model Helicopter is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The Hughes Osage model helicopter arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The Hughes TH-55 was a lightweight piston powered helicopter designed for flight training for the US Army. It was produced in 1961 and retired in 1983 with 2,800 helicopters being produced.
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 helicopter sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
