Huey Argentinian, British captured Falklands 1/48 Kitty Hawk

Recommended Posts

Huey captured in the Falkland Conflict by the British from the Argentinian.

It was an Argentinian Red Cross Helicopter. Very bad condition paintwork.
Not copied the depth of condition . However photos darn it, make it look
cleaner than the effects that I applied.

Bit of artistic licence. British emulsion over painted, in the Falklands, the Argentinian
Livery. I have half painted out the tail & behind the big doors to give the illusion
of the change of hands.

Kitty Hawk first for me & a very fine kit.

Very nice Build and photography. Bit of Trivia, my Brother was part of the REME/AAC team that got them back in to airworthy condition.

That's a great build and an excellent idea. Also a well thought out diorama.

Looks great.  Didn't know about this aircraft.  Must brush up on my Falklands War history, especially having just read Viulcan 607.  Very nice photography too with a highly appropriate backdrop.

Very nice model of an aircraft that I remember seeing,...... great subject! 

 

I would query the Airfix figures though as they are much later than 1982 and carry the SA-80 rifle,....... which was not in service then, it was the longer and much better SLR.

 

Cheers,

Thanks Selwyn for you nice comments.

 

Yes I know I cheated did I not. It was AE413 in the Falklands.

Plus the AE413 was hand painted on so I cheated again.

 

There you go I am a rogue awful ! 🙄

Nice one. I'm sure that I remember seeing G-HUEY on the airshow circuir in the late 1980s with, IIRC, multi-coloured paint striping.

This one perhaps. How it got to this state no idea as it was in one of the museums.
