Nicely done! EC-120 Colibri?
Em dezembro de '81
Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

I liked the paint job, the bent and cranked rotors, and the crud on the chin of the wreck.
Couple of questions...
Is the model to scale with 28mm figs?
What scenarios do you envision with this model?
Will it be an objective or just some eye candy wreckage?

The model fits with my 28mm figures. I’ll post a picture later.
I’m going to use it in modern games (Spectre ops rules), zombie (my Shambling Dead variation of Akulas rules), post apoc (Zona Alfa) possibly others. So rescue downed crew or passenge, recover important piece of equipment or data, recover the helicopter, a distraction, search and destroy the missile or weapon that brought it down.
It can also serve as an objective in its own right and also as a general battlefield clutter.

Not sure it is any particular helicopter just a generic toy. But does resemble the EC-120

Definitely works scale wise.

Thanks for all the kind words.

The helicopter is still available in Poundland (UK) in a variety of colours
