Here is your update.  Ray and I found some last minute issues with the kit. We want them fixed.  You want them fixed.  We of course want the artwork correct too but we'll settle for the parts being done.  ALL the parts, post Vietnam and Vietnam era to be done and done right.  We want this to be THE only Huey kit you'll want in 1/48th scale and later in 1/35th scale.  You can have it fast or you can have it right.  We prefer right.  You may not agree with it, but it is their money.  Hopefully I'll see a pre-production model soon.  Once I'm happy with what I see I'll share it with you all, good and bad.  There shouldn't be anything bad with all the work we've done.  Depending on what KH wants to do I may do an online build of the pre-production model.  More information will come as it develops.  And no 1/144th is not the new scale.

Done right is the go. Thanks for the update

well it looks like the 1/35th kit is going to be toast! Breaks my heart. I had six kids, plus a LRRP team placed inside a cigar box waiting on the kit. Looks like I start all over in gathering parts! Not sure I'm good enough to paint 1/48th figures, but who knows. Now who makes good 1/48th Vietnam era figures these days. I need strait infantry and SF without berets. Their load outs must be optional.

Because I am Huey blood, from my begining of US Army service. I waited with MAXX ANTICIPATION for the Kittyhawk UH-1Y.  I bought one, and I can HONESTLY say,

GREAT job. I think the greatest challenge will be mating the multi piece fuselage, for acceptable results when complete. The Good point is that this approach of assembly, opens the ability to add more detail or mods for engines, or interior details. ALL in ALL  GREAT KIT. Can't wait to get the AH-1Z

How many pieces will the main fuselage be?

I believe he is referring to the UH-1Y, that kit comes with the nose, windshield section and tail boom apart from the fuselage, pretty strange.
