CH-118 Iroquois (Huey) rescue.

Recommended Posts

Well, seeing as I am one of the moderators I had better build a couple. This is a 1/32 Huey gun ship which comes with (mostly not bad) Canadian decals. I think I will use after market numbers to portray one of these old birds that I played with back in the 80s.

Might keep it simple with modifactions. Perhaps make a couple stretchers for the back, but that will be about it.

The base paint. Right now it dries as I have to fix the clothes dryer. Hopefully someone in town has the parts in stock to finish the job

I didn't know the Huey's had clothes dryers in them...LOL! I like the Canadian SAR yellow. It will really make this kit pop.  Nice start... good luck with the dryer.

 

Regards.

Dryer needs parts so , back to the model.........Forgot how simple these models are. The floor fit is not great but its being built closed. No problem.

Love that color! Whenever I built 32 coupes I always preferred canary yellow.

I think I built this in the 70s as a Vietnam gunship, that quilted interior

looks real familiar.Love your engine detail! Looking like a most excellent

I would love to you do a video of your build ... to us it'll look like a Time-Lapse, but ... it'll be real time.   :whistle:

Man phantom, you're quick! ... and that Engine DOES look good!

How long (aprox) is the main rotor on the kit? I'm just trying to figure total size. Looks good also. :clap2:

About 46cm. Takes up a bit of room.
