Gorgeous, made-in-Ireland-from-Irish-wood helicopter with 2 shades of varnish and 2 rotating propellors.
The helicopter body is spruce wood and the cabin sides are oak wood. The propeller has 3 blunt 'rotor blades' to mimic the blur when spinning of a real helicopter propeller.
Not suitable for small children to play with as small parts (e.g., pins that hold-in the propellors) may pose a choking hazard in case the model were broken - the other models in this collection are very robust but the planes are less so.
