HOLLYWOOD AUCTION HOUSE CATALOGUE SCAN DECEMBER 21st 2013

GENUINE VIDEO STILL FROM AIRWOLF EPISODE

We are fully aware the catalogue used the wrong lair image, AS SUCH  
we posted the right photo of the right model for you in the  image above
We don't do "half measure posts" just to generate web activity from fans nitpicking  ;)

It was estimated to fetch between $4,000 - $6,000. I am unsure how much it eventually sold for.

QUOTE:
335. Miniature working Airwolf helicopter from the establishing mountain hangar shots for Airwolf. (CBS TV, 1984-1986) This is a mechanical miniature model of the famous
Airwolf helicopter that was at the center of the 80s high-tech military TV series. The actual Airwolf copter was actually a conventional Bell 222 helicopter subsidized and modified with props for the TV show. Constructed of metal, resin, plastic and wood components and measuring 7 x 21.5 in. with a 21 in. blade, from tip to tip. Expertly painted in hyper-realistic military stealth green and khaki. The model is outfitted with separate internal electric motors (powered by a 9-volt battery) allowing the main rotor to rotate slowly, while the tail rotor spins at high speed (functional). Visible in virtually every episode of the series in the establishing mountain hangar sequence.
 
In production-used very good condition. $4,000 - $6,000
UN-QUOTE: 

I assume the 335 was the auctions Lot Number, obviosly not the scale ;)
