Italeri A-129 "Mangusta" model in 1/72 scale
|The A-129 is an Italian helicopter designed ground force attack helo
of similar configuration as the Apache, but it is much smaller. It serves
currently with the Italian Army Aviation ("Esercito").
Italeri from Italy issued this nice little 1/72 model in 1999 of the Agusta A-129 Mangusta helicopter (kit # 006). There are 2 sprues and a clear canopy.
The Italeri model is typical of this brand, with nice crisply moulded parts in soft plastic. It has enough detail and comes with a clear main cockpit canopy for the pilot and gunner. It was made straight out of the box.
On the seats, some straps and belts were added, the cockpit set closed.
For the green colour, Humbrol 117 enamel was airbrushed.
A nice addition to the helicopter
collection in 1/72 scale.
