Bell UH-1C Huey
by gschmidt (1:48 Monogram)
The kit is Monogram's 1/48th scale Bell UH-1 B/C . It took me over a year to build as I made a lot of modifications and added many additional details.
I enlarged the tail and made it convex on the right hand side and concave on the left. I made rocket and gun sights inside the cockpit that hang down in front of the pilots. I remade the seats from an Esci kit and installed seat belt retraction boxes. Uses screening in engine cowling and air intake. I removed the main rotor blades from the hub an reattached them with small bolts and made dust covers to head. I added small fins to the blade tips to be used as tie down and blade traking. The gap on the upper roof panel is suposed to look like that.
