1/18 scale UH-1B next month, from Hobbyboss

Recommended Posts

As seen on the internet, here is the kit number: 

HobbyBoss UH-1B Iroquois 18 81806 Jun-20

 

Now, this raises a few questions for me, not least of which is why /18 & not /16? Will this be a slick Bravo, or gunship? Will there be other versions or helicopters later on... and, if this can be done, and be a good seller, then surely a 1/35 MH 53K is equally viable.

I had the old 1/24th Monogram Huey when it first was released, it was huge...this will be unbelievable. With the amount of detail that will be visible, you'll need to be a better modeller than I am.

I guess you could use the 1/18 diecast cars (I think someone did a WWII Jeep, yes, wrong period but as close as we'll get to a M151 or M38A1...likewise, a HMMWV would be too new) for a diorama.

Mmm this may not be as exciting as it first reads, but rather a reboxing of a 21st century toy. Bother.
