Huey Hog, Monogram 1/48

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine gave me this kit. He didn't want it and he didn't ask for any money. I checked the parts and found out that an elevator stick was missing, so I tried to make a new one from lengths of plastic. This is what I managed to do.

Yestaerday I found out that the hole engine is missing!!!

I will just try to put some pieces of plastic, as little will be seen. It will be something very easy, simple and quick.

I have one of those kits and never plan on building it. Might use the guns. I can send you the parts you need if you are here in the states. I will send you the whole kit less the guns. Send me a private message and let me know.

Thanks Bravosierra001 but I am in Hellas ( or Greece as inaccurately is said) so the postage might cost a lot. I haven't glued the fuselage yet, because I found out that the whole engine is missing!! So I tried to build something to hold the rotor. I used an 1/48 bomb from the spares box and a piece of plastic. I don't know how it will fit, but I will give it a try!

Very creative.

How is it that Hellas came to be called Greece?

Thanks RKic!

There are many theories.

Both words are ancient, but Greece comes from the word ''grikao'' that means ''understand''.

Hellas comes from one of Zeus's sons in Hellenic mythology. His name was Ellin. ( Hellas is pronounced Ellas in my language. )

At the times of Homer, the word ''Ellin'' was asociated to an ancient race in Thessaly with Achilles as their leader.

Also Hellas comes from the words El and Las which mean:

El = ''Light''

Las = ''Stone'' or ''Soil''

That's why many people call my country ''The country that has given light to the world''.

Take a look at our Air Force which is called HAF (Hellenic Air Force), the parliament which also is called ''Hellenic'' and many more.

I don't have a problem with the word ''Greece'', but I prefer ''Hellas''. It also sounds better! ;)

Can someone remind me if the seats are painted in interior grey?

And the seats and wall at the back, are green or the interior color, too?

This is, by far, the worst kit I've vere tried to build... I will build it just to have it built.

The rear axle was also missing, so I made another one from stretched sprue.

I reached a point where I couldn't stand building it any more, but I didn't want to throw it out of my garage door, so...

The project didn't work out with the white glue and some brown paint, but at least it's not at the garbage...

It needs a lot to call it finished, so I didn't meet the deadline.

Nevermind... At least I will try to finish it.

Thanks!

I used my cellphone for the pics. It's a Samsung that wasn't on sale in Greece. A relative sent it to me from Australia.

Normally, I use an Olympus SP-550UZ, but if you like these, I'll keep using my phone!
