Hi Dermot,

 

this is a beautiful Huey, and I love these markings. Congratulations on a damn smart finish!

Have you found any hint of a tail sitting tendency on this model? Although it never happened for this GB, I still have a Esci UH-1D to finish; I will nonetheless have to source after market decals. And I sure do not want to see it raising its nose!!!

 

Great show!!!

Thanks JR!

I would definitely recommend some weight towards the front - I hid some in an ammo crate behind the pilots' seats. You could also put it under the floor probably..

Good luck with your build, look forward to seeing some photos!

Superb looking Huey.  Can't look at one of these without Ride of the Valkyries running through my head.

Very nice Huey. I´m building a lift ship of the Soc Trang Tigers at the moment from the same kit.

Cheers,
