Bell 430

1/30 Scale

The 430 is an update of the Model 222, which has proven popular as a VIP transport, offshore platform crew shuttle, and air ambulance since 1976. The 430, first flown in 1994, incorporates a new four-bladed "soft-in-plane" rotor system. Unlike most Bell helicopters, the 430 did not originate as a military model.
