  1. Hi All, Just a quick one. I recently purchased the Revell 1:24 Huey, and it's a MONSTER of a kit. Unfortunately the kit decals are so painfully dull! I've had a hunt around and come up dry for aftermarket options, do any of you know if there are any out there and if so - Where? Really want to make this look a little better than the stock stuff, so anything you can point out would be great. Cheers, James
  2. Bell UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" pics by Mike from the Vietnam War remnants museum.
  3. Well, finally got this finished. Except now looking at the pictures, need to do a little work around the front windows. I believe as I am getting older my eyes are getting worse, what a shock!. Made this a tired old bird that had seen better days. The kit was almost no problem to put together. Two issues, one the undercarriage is way too weak to support this kit's weight. I am crafting a new one out of metal. The second issue is the nylon representations for the ammo versus the miniscule attachment points for the machine guns. I need to figure out a more permanent way to secure the guns since there is continuous pressure to distort them from the ammo. Still working on that. During the shoot one of the machine guns popped loose from the tension. Would recommend this kit to anyone of any level. Just wish they would reissue it as the phantom model. It is very large when finished. This is taken in front of my office door and it almost spans the width of the entryway. Comments welcome. Now back to the Mosquito and the obsolete group build.

  5. Thought I heard a rumblin'/Calling to my name/Two hundred million guns are loaded/Satan cries "take aim"/Better run through the jungle... Hey Gang- This is my recently completed 1/72 Italeri UH-1B Huey Gunship, in the markings of the 120th AHC Razorbacks, circa Vietnam. Made a bunch of enhancements and additions to the kit. Huey gunships are very busy in the cargo/cockpit area, so the bulk of the work was done in those two spots (most of which can be seen in this Facebook photo album- https://www.facebook.com/Albymoore/media_set?set=a.10201484012640568.1073741838.1183606216&type=3# ). I also did some exterior work where needed. The Razorback decals were custom made by Joseph Osborn of Fireball Modelworks, while the rest of the markings were sourced from various US Army Huey decal sheets. All comments and critiques welcomed, and thanks for looking!
  6. Italeri kit decals from kit I know this aircraft didnt wear this scheme as it was sold overseas but if it did then hopefully this is what it would look like It is a tailsitter normally Normal proviso best seen from 5ft away Rodders

    Huey UH-1B advice

    I've decided to embark on the next phase of my RAN Fleet Air Arm project - this time a Huey UH-1B from the Italeri 1/72 kit. One thing that has me stumped (apart from the general fit of the cabin floor which is another thing) is the orientation of the top and bottom halves of the central vertical supporting framework seen through the lower nose windows. Here is a photo of the real thing I took recently. The lower part of the central supporting frame has an angle compared to the upper part. I think the lower half angles out but the view through the perspex is quite deceiving and the upper part possibly angles in. Neither the Eduard etch I have, and the original Italeri kit parts/instructions make this clear. The Eduard part for the UH-1B (left) has the central frame flat (although with some nice detail). The Italeri part depicts an angle but the instructions have you install this towards the centre and not the edge as in the real thing. It's also a little unclear whether the central support lies flush with the edge of the perspex window, or whether their is a lip. My apologies if this is trivial but I find this is a very prominent feature of Huey's and I'd like to get it right. Thanks in advance, Andrew
  8. Hi All, here are some shots I took at the excellent Palm Springs Museum back in October.

  9. Call me insane, but here is my 6th and final entry. (Unless I find another gem on eBay cheap ) I've just won it, so until Mr Postman pops it through the door and it's in my grubby little hands you'll have to make do with an eBay photo. I built one of these in the late 80s but the skids ended up a bit lopsided, I was using Revell Contacta Pro and unfortunatly didn't leave it long enough to set. Those were the days before I trusted myself to use superglue. (I now live near a hospital as well...) I can't wait to get started on this one, the AH-1G is a beautiful looking aircraft and with my move to 1/144 (mainly) it's not often I'm going to get a second chance at building a kit from my early modelling days. ***Update*** Now I've got the kit here's a photo of my lovely sealed HueyCobra
  10. First post here (yay!) , so why not start off with a bang? And by bang, I mean gigantic helicopter. I'm not especially far along, I really just started: (if the photos don't work, lemme know) The painted passenger seats, right after I glued 'em on Front seats, painted grey. It's kind of hard to see, since the tape is clear, but I've masked the seat cushion to paint olive drab later. Instrument panel, slightly shiny from being semi-wet. I've yet to put the decal on it, but my local crafts store didn't have any decal setting solution, so I'm gonna apply it with water and prayers. The nicely painted (if I do say so myself) pitch sticks, drying on a Testors cap. I'd like to say that the scratch-marks and weathering on the silver parts were intentional, but it was really just my ineptitude at painting. Anndd the control sticks. I left the handle unpainted, I like it in OD green...(who knows why) Err...this photo came out a little blurry..oops..... That's it for now, more progress soon
  11. Hi Spent a very pleasant afternoon in the sun with a good friend, fine ale, stunning military vehicles and some wonderful flying (unfortunately "Sally B" cancelled due to "bad weather up-country", whatever that means!) I hope you enjoy the pictures - you might have guessed that the Huey was my favourite, after seeing it on static at so many shows.
