A brace of European HUEYS (Italeri 1/72 AB204)

Recommended Posts

A recently-completed pair of Italeri's very build-friendly 1/72 AB-204B/UH-1F, built pretty much out-of-box.


The Dutch Navy markings were courtesy of the kit's decal sheet. The Swedish 'air ambulance' markings were based on a photo of a preserved museum aircraft, made up with Internet images and printed as home-made decals from my PC.

A very clean and trouble-free little kit, great fun to build. Hope you enjoy!

Hello Thorfinn,

Good to see the old and reliable AB-204 in 1/72 scale. Especially the Dutch version has my attention.

Did sterling service for the Dutch Naval Aviation for over fifteen years.

Your models look fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Regards, Orion

Thanks John, and to all the others who took the time to 'like' or comment.

 

I love the Italeri helo kits! They're petite---one is hesitant to say 'cute,' dealing with any service a/c---but for the most part nicely detailed, and very 'build-able.'

 

Cheer to all.
