Blue Thunder High-Tech Helicopter Free Paper Model DownloadThis paper model is Blue Thunder, a high-tech helicopter which based on the same named action thriller film, the papercraft is created by antho2b. The aircraft itself was a modified Aérospatiale Gazelle helicopter.

For the movie SA-341G Gazelles were modified with bolt-on parts and a canopy patterned after the AH-64 Apache. Two helicopters were used in the filming of the movie, one for the actual stunts, one as a backup in case the other was grounded for maintenance. Stunts were flown by Jim Gavin.

The helicopters were purchased by Columbia Pictures and flown to Cinema Air in Carlsbad, California, where they were heavily modified for the film. These alterations made the helicopters so heavy that various tricks had to be employed to make it look fast and agile in the film. For instance, the 360° loop maneuver at the end of the film was carried out by a 1/6-scale radio controlled model. [Source: wikipedia]

  1. This looks great!
    I just have two questions:
    1- What scale is it made in?
    2- Are there instructions to know where each piece goes?
    Any help is most appreciated.
    thanks!
