I never watched "Airwolf" (I was too young at the time), but this looks like a great set that I'd like to have!

Say, how long and wide is it?

Stringfellow Hawke. Coolest McCool name in history.

Airwolf. Because real men weep gently into the setting sun, whilst playing the cello.

Well, I was two years old

Well, I was two years old when it came out, and I was five when it ended. My parents wouldn't let me watch it either. They did, however, let me watch "Knight Rider", which was one of my shows favorite when I was young.

(We have a classic-TV channel now that plays "Knight Rider", so I can re-watch it... and understand what my parents put up with and why they rolled their eyes so much at it.)

This. Is. Fantastic. Agreed

This. Is. Fantastic.

Agreed on the regret, as I kept putting this model off for years, and now, ...ugh.

This diecast is typical Aoshima vehicle. Got some metal, details, and several cool gimmicks.

Guys who come over, will take a look at robots, but will stampede over each other to get to an Airwolf toy!

So much nostalgia. The "super vehicle" shows of the time.
Airwolf, and BlueThunder: helicopters.
Knight Rider, A-Team, Dukes o' Hazard: cars
Street Hawk: motorcycle (does anyone even remember Street Hawk? One of my favorites as a kid.)

Street Hawk

I watched street hawk, IMHO it's poor man version of Knight Rider with bike.

What I really want is... The truck from "The Highwayman" and "The Dead reckoning" from the day of the dead...

Great Show!

I was in my 20's when the show came. Jan Michael Vincent was at the top of his game then. Before he turned into a drunk and had a piece of face ripped off by a rottweiller. Ernest Borgnine was the side kick! If I remember right the big thing about the copter was it could a loop to loop 360, which was supposed to impossible for helicopter to do. Which do you think is badder, Air Wolf or Blue Thunder?

Sorry, Blue Thunder looped...

...which *isn't* impossible for helicopters, by the way, as long as they roll off the top I believe. Air Wolfs trick, aside from being more heavily armed than the average air force, was that it could travel at supersonic speeds by "disengaging" the rotors (which I also think was actually studied, although using a much thicker rotor to act as a conventional aerofoil at high speed).

And "The Lady" would have Blue Thunder for breakfast. :-)

Airwolf and Blue Thunder on shelf

Both helicopter models would be great on one shelf. Too much coolness for one room.
Blue Thunder had more spying/stealth options, and worked great for downtown, tight quarters.
Though Airwolf did indeed dock down inside an old hollowed out, mined, mountain.

I forgot there was this newsclip of the B.T. toy released that Josh put up back in 2008
