This is my recently completed Italeri Bell 212 AH.1 in 72nd scale. I aded an Eduard PE set and painted useing hataka acrylics for the camo and tamiya for the rest. The kit was produced in the late 90's but i based this on photo's from 2019 on the 7 Flight FB page.  Decals had to be modfied sligtly and the yellow markings around the windows are from the spares box.

One of the two captured Argentinian Huey is still on display at the Museum of Army Flying, Middle Wallop - and its still wearing its covering of Dulux brilliant white emulsion. You could be lucky on a visit to Wallop to see ZH816 fly as she is currently the resident 212.

Very Nice.

The 212 always looks to me like a teenager has bought a Huey and been down to Halfords for a body kit...

Nicely done,... I do like the bright engine box that they have adopted,....... a good run around in Brunei,....... and I think they have one at Wallop for training?

 

I made one many moons ago soon after they were introduced and before the brightly coloured additional `bling'!  

Cheers
