1/72 Italeri AS 332 F-1 Cougar

Chilean Navy Helicopter

by Kep Ar



Hey you everybody… greeting from Patagonia, Chile.


Here is my AS 332 F-1 Cougar of Chilean Navy. This Helicopter is in service since 1987 when the Chilean Navy bought seven of them.  This is a navalized version of the Super Puma, and is used for long range recon, ASW, rescue, and a lot of other missions.  The kit is the Italeri Cougar 1/72, and I'd used the Eduard Photo Edge set for this project.

This model was deeply adapted, on the intakes and the exit door located in the rear fuselage, and some sensors and antennae, in this particular case.  The model is armed with two AM 39 Exocet, and it represents the old color scheme.  I like to thanks to Sergio Pulgar and Oscar Rus for their comments and support…

I hope you like this model…


Happy Modeling…
