Bell UH-1B Huey
by HueynutUK (1:72 HobbyBoss)
This is my first submission to the site, and nowhere near the standard of "the greats", but I'm a dad and can only grab a few hours here and there to kit. I used the Hobby Boss UH-1B kit, SHQ white metal crew, Fireball Modelworks Decals and a M2 50.cal from the spares box to depict a HAL-3 US Navy Huey.
I wanted my Seawolf to feature a few replaced panels so I used Xtracrylix Faded Olive Drab mixed with various amounts of Tamiya O/D - then dry brushed the lot with a dust mix. I'm happy with the paint job, less so with the oversized minigun mount that I scratch built late one night and my lack of a brush-able transparent green is clear.
The Hobby Boss kit is ok - the weapons mounts need a little work. Joseph's decals were fantastic as ever - and I used Adobe Elements to create the in-flight blurring.
