A Brand New Corgi 1:72nd Scale Westland Sea King HC.4 Diecast Model.
The Aviation Archive Limited Edition.
The Falklands Conflict saw the Sea King HC.4s of the Royal Navy forced to act as decoys against the feared Argentine Exocet missile attacks. The threat posed by these devastating weapons resulted in a highly secret and extremely dangerous SAS plan to attack the Argentine airbase at Rio Grande and destroy any remaining Exocet missiles before they could be used. Sea King HC.4 ZA290/VC carried a small force of SAS troops to set up an observation post and provide intelligence in advance of the raid, but at the very extreme of the helicopters range, the crew of the Sea King knew this was a one way mission. After delivering their covert cargo, they were instructed to make their way to neutral Chile and destroy the aircraft.
This diecast model is of Westland Sea King HC.4 ZA290/VC, No.846 Naval Air Squadron, Fleet Air Arm Falklands Conflict, 1982.
