John Irwin Posted April 18, 2014 Share Posted April 18, 2014 I posted a build log on ARC years ago but figured I'd share this over here. Subject is a latewar US Army UH-1H slick. Latewar mods consist of the "toilet bowl" exhaust supressor and vent sheilds (to keep newly introduced SAM-7 missiles from locking on), relocated antennas and a slightly modified late-war paint job (overall OD, no black anti-glare panel on nose). The 1/35 Dragon Huey kit is a pig. I spent lots of time filling huge panel lines, sanding off monster rivets, etc, etc. Most of the smaller bits were heavily modified or scratchbuilt. I also cut open the doors and used resin replacements. I spent a great deal of time scratchbuilding all the troop seats. I used the Cobra Company M-60 set and their toilet bowl. Decals are a mix of Fireballs and some donated decals to represent one of the last Cav units flying Huey's at the end of the US involvement in late '72, early '73. Hope you like....
