Wiggi Posted August 20, 2022 Share Posted August 20, 2022 Dear all. my current project is to build a UH-1D from the 187th AHC, Blackhawks, Tay Ninh 1967. PrintScale offers a fine decal sheet but the overall painting instructions are insufficient. I already carried out quite a lot of research but would like to ask if someone else could contribute to this topic. Here’s what I could find out / assume so far: - Main rotor blades: A short clip on Youtube suggests that one upper blade was painted white while the other was painted OD. The clip shows helicopter of the Crusaders but I assume that this was implmented unit wide. - The skids on 829, Super Huey seem to be OD with yellow details. - The M23 gun mounts could be OD too. - On other Blackhawks choppers it looks that the elevators are OD without the widely used orange upper surfaces. - Behind the upper cockpit windows, it seem that there is a white stripe, probably for aerial recognition. - Another helicopter of the Blackhawks wears yellow details on the verticla fin root, but I have no indication that this was worn by 829 too. Maybe it was a unit wide feature Any further information would be highly appreciated! Many thanks in advance and bets regards Sven Quote Link to post Share on other sites
