Aeroplast is a small Polish company. While I couldn’t find a web site for the company, I have found this corporate profile online.
PZL-Świdnik is a Polish helicopter maker which was recently acquired by AgustaWestland. The SW-4 is a light single-engine helicopter originally designed in the early 1980s. I personally find it bears some resemblance to the Eurocopter AS-350 (front of the cabin).
I recently obtained this kit, and must say I was pleasantly surprised. The details are quite nice. The overall design of the kit reminds me of Heller’s AS-350. The decals are pretty simple. I am not familiar with other Aeroplast kits, so I cannot comment about how well these decals will work.
Aeroplast has produced two versions of this kit. The first one (Aeroplast 90033) is for a Polish military machine. The pictures below are for the second version of the kit that depicts a civilian machine (Aeroplast 90034).
These kits are periodically available on eBay or from Jadar Hobby, a polish kit store with a pretty nice and easy to use web store.
