UH-1Y afghanistan (Requesting for reference sites/pictures)

Recommended Posts

Hello guys. I was looking to do a 1/72 UH-1Y. I could sort out the parts to get UH-1N to look like one. Problem is the decals as there are to my knowledge none in 1/72. I was looking for easy to do schemes. I'm particularly eyeing to do a HMLA 167 as their insignia is easy enough for me to replicate and I understand that this unit also served in Afghanistan. And if I could find one scheme depicting one that actually served in Afghanistan, the better. Doesn't have to be one from the 167. Any squadron would do  provided that there's no squadron markings so I can still copy the scheme with ease.  For now this is the scheme I could do https://www.google.com.ph/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com%2F-YJVzmqLDvi8%2FVSSWZRpO9zI%2FAAAAAAABHNc%2FAxtYkZHT4ds%2Fs1600%2F1605135.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fsnafu-solomon.blogspot.com%2F2015%2F04%2Ftodays-debate-does-uh-1y-huey-fit-into.html&docid=pNFY4smBs_mHSM&tbnid=ej19WyOZG8I-PM%3A&vet=1&w=1600&h=1067&bih=613&biw=1366&q=uh-1y 1605135&ved=0ahUKEwjN_Kf599XRAhWFJ5QKHZ2LCAsQMwgYKAAwAA&iact=mrc&uact=8

 

It's from a simulation raid in Yuma Arizona. 

 

This is the one I'm also interested in. Only problem is I can't quite gripe its serial/BuNo as you can see from the pic ( it's from wikipedia)A_U.S._Marine_Corps_UH-1Y_Venom_helicopt

 

Edit: Oh yah, I'm looking for one with door gunners, not just ones with LAUs.
