Product Description
The Fairey Rotodyne was a 1950s British compound gyroplane designed and built by Fairey Aviation and intended for commercial and military uses
 One prototype was built. Although the Rotodyne was promising in concept and successful in trials, the programme was eventually cancelled. The termination has been attributed to the type failing to attract any commercial orders; this was in part due to concerns over the high levels of rotor tip jet noise generated in flight. Politics had also played a role in the lack of orders (the project was government funded) which ultimately doomed the project.

Some assembly required:
The main 4 blade rotor and hub, along with the spinners on both wing engines are attached to a sprue that will need to be cut away from the main body.
The rotor blades will need to be attached to the hub (with super/CA glue)
Some celluloid disks could also be used to represent spinning prop blades on the wing engines.
