Westland Whirlwind HAR.Mk 10   10.5"   8.75"

First flying in 1962, Whirlwind XP345 was delivered to the Central Flying School at Ternhill, where it served for a number of years before suffering an engine failure and crash landing on Snowdonia. Returned to Westland at Yeovil for repair in 1968, it was then allocated to 202 Squadron, and was then in turn attached to 1563 Flight at Nicosia, Cyprus in 1970. XP345 served with the UN detachment in Cyprus throughout the 1970s, suffering bullet damage on a number of occasions and helping to resupply the UN garrison on the island during this troubled part of the island’s history. After being retired from RAF service in the early 1980s it was preserved and is now at the Aeroventure Museum. It is also the only preserved machine in UN colours in the United Kingdom.


Westland Whirlwind HAR.Mk 10

Designed as a British-built version of the Sikorsky S-55 Chickasaw, the Westland Whirlwind was licensed in 1950 and first flew in August 1953. Used by the Royal Air Force's Fleet Air Arm, early models served as search and rescue aircraft, or in other non-combat roles such as communications. Equipped with more powerful engines, Whirlwinds also served as anti-submarine aircraft; they could either by equipped as "hunters" (carrying submarine detecting dipping Sonar) or as "killers" (carrying a single torpedo). The Whirlwind can carry six stretchers or 10 passengers, and can also be used to carry freight. Westland built 400+ Whirlwinds, 100 of which were exported.

Corgi's 1:72 H-19/Whirlwind is constructed almost entirely in diecast metal with some plastic components used for scale replication such as its large multi-window canopy and rotor blades. The cargo bay door slides opens to reveal interior crew seating with pilot figures clearly seen through the top mounted canopy. An unusual feature of this model are the two easily changeable all metal rotor head assemblies that allow the model to be display with rotor blades folded back for storage or deployed for flight. The series covers the radial-engined Sikorsky H-19 Chickasaw variants and the turbine-engined Westland Whirlwind variants.
