UH-1D Huey 116th Assault Helicopter Company, Vietnam '71

 

There is no doubt that the Huey will always be associated with the Vietnam War.  No 'Nam collection should be without at least one of these beautiful workhorses.  Employed in many roles and many different variants I have built a pretty standard 'Slick' troop transport.  I actually have another 2 of these on the go - both different again, doors removed, no seating inside etc.  I also have pretty much all variants in the stash to be built at some stage.  I am really looking forward to the Dust Off version.

 

Not too much weathering or wear and tear on this bird.  One thing I did do was to hollow out the front step on the skid as this is moulded as a solid piece.  Very quick and simple mod but looks so much better.  I have left the side doors off as this was a common practice to reduce weight.

Well done!

Hello RM,

Nice job on this famous chopper. Remarkable, how long this model would last in the real world.

Untill today in all kind of types. Regards, Orion.
