Eurocopter AS350 B3 Ecureuil

Eurocopter AS350 B3 Ecureuil

This is the AS-350 B3 ASTAR F-WQEX which has been the first helicopter to land on the Mount Everest. I used the Heller kit #8488 in scale 1/48.

On May 14th, 2005 at 7h08 (local time), a serial Ecureuil/AStar AS 350 B3 piloted by the EUROCOPTER X-test pilot Didier Delsalle, landed at 8,850 meters (29,035ft) on the top of the Mount Everest (Kingdom of Nepal).

Interior cameras were added to the model. Additionally I changed the pilot seat, added details in the cabin, GPS and bulit the pitot in the nose.
